JinJiayi Jin, a graduate student in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Texas A&M, was one of 12 finalists at the Broadcom Foundation University Research competition held June 5-6.

Jin presented his research project, “Ultra Energy Efficient SAR ADC for Biomedical Applications,” which studies techniques to make electronics more energy-efficient so that portable medical devices can have longer battery life.

He was among 12 students from 12 universities from around the glove competing in a poster session at Broadcom’s annual Technical Conference.

The finalists, who were chosen by a select committee comprised of preeminent engineers, shared insights into their engineering research and how its future application can improve lives and contribute to society. More than 400 distinguished Broadcom engineers were on hand to judge the entries on technology, innovation and presentation.

Broadcom Foundation was founded to inspire and enable young people throughout the world to enter careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) through partnerships with local schools, colleges, universities and non-profit organizations.
