UTA Engineers to Develop Very High Speed Analog Chip

December 18, 2001

Every two years, the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) selects outstanding research proposals to fund; only about one in 10 submissions is selected for funding. Two professors of electrical engineering at the University of Texas at Arlington are among this year's winners, thanks to research that may at first to appear behind the times.

UTA Researchers Seek Ways to Reduce Electronics' Toxic Wastes

December 14, 2001

Some consumer products contain environmentally significant amounts of lead because their electronics circuits use lead-based solder connections. Many of these products are designed to be cast aside and replaced following their use rather than be repaired, resulting in an increase in the presence of toxins in dumps and landfills. Two researchers in the University of Texas at Arlington's College of Engineering are studying lead substitutes that will reduce toxic wastes while maintaining current manufacturing processes.
