Briseno-Vidrios finalist at Broadcom Foundation University Research Competition

Carlos Briseno-Vidrios, a graduate student in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Texas A&M University, presented innovative engineering research at the fourth annual Broadcom Foundation University Research Competition sponsored by Broadcom Foundation, a non-profit funded by Broadcom Corporation.

BFURC Briseno A&MBriseno-Vidrios, who is advised by Dr. Jose Silva-Martinez, presented his project titled “High-Performance Low-Power Continuous-time Sigma-Delta Modulator (CTSDM) for Broadband Applications.” 

Briseno-Vidrios was among student finalists from 12 universities competing at Broadcom Corporation’s annual Technical Conference held in Irvine, California. Selected by Broadcom Foundation’s Selection Committee comprised of preeminent engineers, finalists shared insight into their engineering research and how its future application will contribute to advancement of society. In the final round, more than 400 distinguished Broadcom engineers judged the finalists on a three-minute presentation with a single slide and a four-hour poster session where they demonstrated the scientific rigor, technology sophistication and innovation of their work.

"Spearheaded by Broadcom Corporation’s co-founder and chairman of the board, Henry Samueli, this competition celebrates both academic excellence and social awareness by graduate students whose engineering innovations will yield unlimited benefits not only to their generation, but society at large,” said Paula Golden, president and executive director of Broadcom Foundation and director of community affairs at Broadcom Corporation. “The talent and intellectual fire-power of these finalists, who are engaged in ground-breaking research at premier universities from across the world, is profound. We are honored to have them compete in the Broadcom Foundation University Research Competition."

BFURC Briseno GroupBroadcom Foundation’s mission is to advance education in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) by funding research, recognizing scholarship and increasing opportunity. The goal of the University Research Competition is to encourage young researchers throughout the world to become the next generation of great innovators in electrical engineering and related fields.
