Navid Asadi is partnering with the Office of Naval Research (ONR) on a system which promises secure fabrication of electronic systems.
ECE Assistant Professor Joel Harley is embarking on a unique collaboration with MAE to better understand how a high entropy alloy (HEA) works on an atomic level.
ECE PhD student Ulbert (Joey) Botero was recently awarded 2020 Outstanding Paper at the Electronic Device Failure Analysis Society (EDFAS) Virtual Workshop, held December 7–9 of last year for his paper, “Automated Via Detection for PCB Reverse Engineering.”
Assistant Professor Roozbeh Tabrizian has been selected to receive a 2021 DARPA Director’s Fellowship, following his receipt of the 2019 DARPA Young Faculty Award (YFA).
An article recently published in the Academic Times profiled exciting new technology patented by researchers at the Florida Institute for Cybersecurity (FICS) Research which promises a new way to detect recycled and counterfeit electronic parts. The technology created by ECE Associate Professor Domenic Forte and ECE Associate Professor Nima Maghari makes supply chains more secure, protects consumer safety and runs at almost zero cost.
ECE Professor Yong-Kyu Yoon and UF Transportation Institute (UFTI) Director Lily Elefteriadou were recently interviewed by WUFT News about a years-long study of bus bike rack usage on local RTS buses. Dr. Yoon and his students deployed sensors on the racks which enabled them to track activity over time.
YK Yoon and Mosaic Microsystems are collaborating on a project sponsored by the Air Force Research Lab (AFRL) to collaboratively develop ultra-low loss solutions for next-generation radar arrays.
