Good Luck Raj Krishnan! ...break a leg...errr...pipette!

Xconomy San Diego highlighted just how big of a day it is for Raj Krishnan and the rest of the UC San Diego startup, Biological Dynamics. They aim to provide better early diagnosis tools for cancer. Today, Krishnan competes for $250,000 in the DFJ Cisco Global Business Plan Competition.

Concealed Weapons Story in Semiconductor Today

Gabriel Rebeiz and Jason May are electrical engineers from the University of California, San Diego who have invented radio frequency integrated circuits that could lead to significantly less expensive imaging systems for identifying concealed weapons, for helping helicopters to land during dust storms, and for high frequency data communications. The UC San Diego engineers presented this circuit at the 2009 IEEE Radio Frequency Integrated Circuits (RFIC) Symposium on June 9, where it won one of the best three-student-paper awards.

On June 29, Semiconductor Today magazine ran a story on the millimeter wave imaging advance.
