University of Macau Awarded Macau’s First U.S. Patent in Hi-technology Microelectronics 澳門大學微電子研究獲美國專利 (澳门大学微电子研究获美国专利)

The University of Macau (UM) has earned Macau’s first U.S. patent in hi-technology microelectronics. A UM research team composed of Prof. Rui Martins, UM Vice Rector (Research), Prof. U Seng Pan and Dr. Mak Pui In from the Faculty of Science and Technology, has achieved significant results in very-large-scale integrated circuit chips design, with the research in “Two-Step Channel Selection for Wireless Receiver Front-Ends”. This achievement has put UM at the forefront of the worldwide research in hi-technology microelectronics.

The new technology passed the rigorous review process of the U.S. Patent and Trade Mark Office in May 2009, and was granted the very first U.S. patent in this area in UM and Macau. It has also received the IEEE CASS 2009 Chapter of the Year Award.

澳門大學一項用於多制式接收器的雙階段頻道選取技術高科技微電子研究項目, 成功獲得美國專利。 項目由澳大副校長(研究)馬許願教授, 科技學院余成斌副教授和麥沛然博士等組成的研究團隊長期致力開發。

負責研究, 近年以麥沛然博士為第一主力研發的“用於多制式接收器的雙階段頻道選取技術”更取得了重大突破, 研究成果將可應用在無線電通訊上, 至於配合其研究發展出來的高科技無線電產品, 具有多制式及低成本等特點。

麥沛然, 花了3年多, 在今年五月成功通過美國專利局的嚴格審核才獲取專利, 為澳門及澳大取得了該領域的首個美國專利權, 這標誌著澳大高科技微電子研究的水平已站在國際最前沿。 現時會繼續完善技術, 希望盡快在市場上應用。
