 Three UNIST ECE students have been recognized for their excellence in academic and research work at the 23rd Annual International Samsung Human-Tech Paper Awards, held on February 7th, 2017. Wooseung Nam (Advisor: Kyunghan Lee) received the Silver prize, Seyeon Yoo (Advisor: Jaehyouk Choi) received the Bronze prize, and Sunhae Shin (Advisor: Kyung Rok Kim) received the Honor prize. The school of ECE set a record of producing the highest number of Human-Tech Paper Award recipients among the schools of UNIST for two consecutive years.

Wooseung Nam received the Silver prize in the field of Communications/Networks with the research named, “New compression technique with previous synchronized data for Data synchronization”. In his work, he proposes a novel network data encoding technique which dynamically eliminates redundancy block of inter-files by exploiting previously synchronized (i.e., transmitted) data. He demonstrated that the novel compression technique largely outperforms available advanced compression techniques. The compression techniuqe was assessed by the reviewers as an alternative of Brotli which is the default network data compression technique for Google Chrome browser.

Seyeon Yoo received the Bronze prize in the field of Circuit Design with the research on “A New Multi-standard Transceiver Architecture for 5G Communication Systems”. In his work, he presents a new LO-generator architecture for multi-standard cellular transceivers, which is capable of supporting mm-wave band 5G communications as well as 2G – 4G standards at the same time.

Sunhae Shin received the Honor Prize in the field of Physical Device with a paper titled “Demonstration of CMOS-compatible ternary device for compact building block of multi-valued logic”. In her work, she firstly demonstrates a feasible and designable ternary CMOS (T-CMOS) on the fully CMOS-compatible physical synthesis. By developing the compact model of T-CMOS and by verifying the physical model parameters with experimental data, a T-CMOS design framework is presented for static noise margin (SNM) enhancement of ternary logic gates.

Established in 1994, this competition recognizes an elite cadre of creative young researchers who through competition have demonstrated excellence in research. In this year, out of 1,500 excellent papers considered from high schools and universities, only 116 papers (79 from universities and 27 from highschools) were selected to receive the awards.
