MCCI PhD student, Zhongzheng Wang, has won the Analog Devices (ADI) Outstanding Student IC Designer Award 2022. The outstanding IC student designer award is presented annually to recognise early PhD researchers for excellence in analog, mixed-signal & RF, integrated circuit design.

Zhongzheng was nominated for his exceptional academic achievements to date and potential to develop novel ways to interrogate electrochemical sensors. “We would like to commend and congratulate Zhongzheng on his prestigious award and his achievements to date since joining MCCI. Zhongzheng has had an impressive track record as an IC designer and his current PhD research is already delivering impact, in that he is currently designing a completely novel way to interrogate electrochemical sensors” John Morrissey, Executive Director MCCI, said. He joined our technology centre less than two years ago which makes this achievement even more impressive.

His research focuses on new generation electrochemical sensor interface ICs, with an emphasis on low noise low offset techniques for operational amplifiers, low-leakage-current sampling switches and high precision ADC/DACs.

Zhongzheng Wang received the B.E. Degree in Electronics Science and Technologies from Beijing University of Chemical Technology (BUCT), Beijing, China in 2017, and completed his M.E. Degree in Electronics Engineering from IoE Research Group at University College Dublin (UCD), Dublin, Ireland in 2019. He joined MCCI in 2020 as a PhD student.
