A group of students and faculty from Missouri University of Science and Technology were honored at the 2014 IEEE international Symposium on Electromagnetic Compatibility this fall. The event is the largest and most prestigious of its kind.

Award recipients include:

Ketan Shringarpure of Rolla, Missouri, a Ph.D. student in electrical engineering, received the Electromagnetic Compatability (EMC) Society President’s Memorial Award. This is the highest award a student in the EMC field can earn.

Benjamin Toby, a senior in electrical engineering from Kansas City, Missouri, received the James C. Klouda Memorial Scholarship Award. The award is presented for outstanding potential for contributions to EMC as an undergraduate electrical engineering student.

Shubhankar Marathe of Thane, India, and Giorgi Maghlakelidze of Kutaisi, Georgia, both graduate students in electrical engineering, received the Best Student Design Award for developing a power supply designed to maximize electromagnetic compatibility.

Three papers authored by Missouri S&T faculty, alumni, students and visiting scholars earned Best Paper Awards during the symposium. Winning papers were:

“Modeling electromagnetic radiation at high-density PCB/connector interfaces” won the Best EMC Student Paper Award. The paper was co-authored by Xinxin Tian, a visiting scholar; Dr. Matthew Halligan, who earned bachelor of science, master of science and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from Missouri S&T in 2008, 2010 and 2014, respectively; Xiao Li, who earned a master of science degree in electrical engineering in 2014; Kiyeong Kim, an electrical engineering graduate student from the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology; Hung-Chuan Chen, an electrical engineering graduate student from the National Taiwan University; Samuel Connor, a representative of IBM; Bruce Archambeault, adjunct professor of electrical and computer engineering at Missouri S&T; Dr. Michael Cracraft, who earned bachelor of science, master of science and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from Missouri S&T in 2000, 2002 and 2007, respectively; Albert Ruehli, an adjunct professor of electrical and computer engineering at Missouri S&T; and Dr. James Drewniak, Curators’ Professor of electrical and computer engineering.

“Designing a 3-D printing-based channel emulator” won the Best SI/PI Paper Award. The paper was co-authored by Xiangyang Jiao, a graduate student in electrical engineering from San Jose, California; Hui He, a graduate student in electrical engineering from Rolla, Missouri; Guanghua Li, a graduate student in electrical engineering from Chengdu, China; Dr. David Pommerenke, professor of electrical and computer engineering; Wei Qian, a graduate student in electrical engineering from Rolla, Missouri; Guangyao Shen, a graduate student in electrical engineering from Rolla, Missouri; Chong Ding, who earned a master of science degree in electrical engineering from Missouri S&T in 2006; Douglas White, of Cisco Systems; Stephen Scearce, of Cisco Systems; and Yaochao Yang, a graduate student in electrical engineering from the University of Arizona and a representative of Cisco Systems.

“On finding the optimal number of decoupling capacitors by minimizing the equivalent inductance of the PCB PDN” won the Best SI/PI Student Paper Award. The paper was co-authored by Shringarpure; Biyao Zhao, a graduate student in electrical engineering from Jingzhou, China; Leihao Wei, an electrical engineering student from Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology; Archambeault; Ruehli; Cracraft; Matteo Cocchini, who earned a master of science degree in electrical engineering from Missouri S&T in 2008; Edward Wheeler, an adjunct professor of electrical and computer engineering who earned a Ph.D. in electrical engineering from Missouri S&T in 1966; Dr. Jun Fan, associate professor of electrical and computer engineering; and Drewniak.
