Analog VLSI and Devices Laboratory
The research at the Analog & Mixed Signal VLSI and Devices Laboratory focuses on analog & mixed signal circuit designs in bulk CMOS and SOI technologies, semiconductor devices for high frequency and high power applications and bio-microelectronics. In addition, the lab collaborates with Oak Ridge National Laboratory in the areas of monolithic sensors and nano-technology.
Antennas and Microwave Systems
The Antennas and Microwave Systems group’s research interests encompass UWB systems for various applications including See-Thru-Walls and precise In-Door Localization; Reconfigurable Antennas, particularly their development, RF front ends for wireless applications; advancing state-of-the-art steerable DBS antennas for mobile platforms, and phased arrays as well as enhancing efficient power-combining techniques. The group’s research capabilities include electromagnetic analysis, antenna modeling, and full experimental validation at both frequency and time domains. Furthermore, the group’s activities include components development, sub-systems designs and integration, and product development.
Integrated Circuits and Systems Laboratory
ICSL’s research focus includes Silicon-On-Insulator (SOI) CMOS mixed-signal systems, CMOS low-voltage analog IC design, development of novel devices for SOI technology (such as the G4-FET or MOS-JFET), and CMOS analog design techniques for extreme environment applications. Partnered with the Analog VLSI and Devices Laboratory, the ICASL team collaborates with Oak Ridge National Laboratory and the Center for Environmental Biotechnology, particularly in the areas of nanotechnology, biomicroelectronics, and smart sensors.
