Ching-Te Chiu, a 1992 ECE Ph.D. graduate advised by Professor K. J. Ray Liu (ECE/ISR), has won both the first place award and the innovation award in the Macronix Golden Silicon Awards competition for her group’s work on “Loaded Balanced Birkhoff Von Neumann Symmetric TDM Switch IC.” Chiu’s research team, which also included Hou-Cheng Tzeng, Ming-Cheng Du, and Chang-Yin Hsieh from National Tsing-Hua University in Taiwan, worked to implement a switch architecture that is capable of providing both high scalability and high throughput rate.

Macronix, located in Hsin-Chu City, Taiwan, is a leading provider of innovative Non-Volatile Memory (NVM) solutions. In 2001, Macronix established the Macronix Education Foundation to sponsor the Macronix Golden Silicon Awards as part of the company's efforts to inspire research and innovation from talented teams in the semiconductor and the System on Chip areas, and to enhance interactions between the IC industries and universities. With its high prestige and attractive monetary compensation, the competition attracted 162 university teams to participate in 2006.

Prof. Chiu, an associate professor at National Tsing-Hua University in Taiwan, has been working in various research areas, including high speed switching and serial interface design, 10 Gbps IP router, SONET/SDH framer and mapper, and high-definition television.
