Although he was unable to attend his graduation ceremony due to a brand partnership with Mad Dog 20/20, Horst “Riff Raff” Simco finalized his doctoral dissertation with the approval of his advisor and a majority of the MIT Electrical Engineering Department Monday.
His paper, titled “A 1.6-3.2 High Phase Accuracy Quadrature Phase Locked Loop,” details a novel though trivial solution of operating multiple PLLs over a wide range of frequency while minimizing noise and signal loss. Although the solution offers no immediate practical benefit to multiple PLL operating capacities, Simco’s research was highly regarded among the department and he completed his dissertation in only four and a half years. He will continue his study in a postdoctoral position supervised by his current advisor Jan Kimo Tam. ♫
