The power to change

October 15, 2019 | NewElectronics
In their work at North Carolina State University, Barkha Gupta and Rhett Davis showed that for a single silicon-on-insulator (SOI) process, which typically exhibit low leakage levels, the ratio of off-currents through an inverter versus a more complex NAND4 transistor stack varies dramatically with changes in process conditions at the fab.

NCSU, partners land $24M grant to develop first platform linking drones, 5G wireless technology

September 18, 2019 | WRAL Tech Wire
N.C. State University and several partners have landed a $24 million federal grant to create the first wireless platform to link drones and emerging next-generation technology known as 5G. The National Science Foundation (NSF) and U.S. ignite, an organization seeking to drive broadband availability and use across the country, announced the awarding of the grant at an event Wednesday afternoon.

As one of only two institutions to be home to two concurrent NSF Engineering Research Centers, one of three NSF Platforms for Advanced Wireless Research Initatives, the home of the Department of Energy’s PowerAmerica institute, and leaders in the only North America IBM Q Hub, we are ranked among the top academic units engaged in scientific research in the United States.
