Dylan Longest defended an MS thesis and plans to join industry (May 2024)

Dylan Longest (advisor: Dong Ha) successfully defended his MS thesis entitled " Low-Power and High Precision Sensing Circuit for a Three-Channel Electrochemical Sensor " on May 1st, 2024. His thesis presents a small and low power sensor readout circuit. Complete with two sensing circuits, a microcontroller, and a USB port to send readings to a PC. A timing circuit is used to control the sampling frequency and shut off the circuit when it is not in use to save significant power. This approach allows the sensor to last as long as some pH sensing circuits while also measuring Lactate and VFS (Volatile Fatty Acids), while maintaining small size. Dylan will join Micron to work on High Bandwidth Memory (HBM). We wish Dylan good luck in his industry career!
