Research in Electronic DevicesResearch in the division of Electronic Devices is focused on future analog/digital/radio-frequency integrated circuits and chip design challenges in advanced semiconductor technologies. The division develops efficient circuit techniques for a wide range of applications which require cutting-edge high-speed and low-power operation. Examples of current research projects are: Flexible multi-band, multi-standard radio transceivers for future software-defined radio and radars, high-speed analog-to-digital converters for Gigabit Ethernet, ultra-low-power radio and data converters for medical implant devices such as pacemakers, un-cooled low-cost infrared network camera for continuous surveillance of critical infrastructures, high data rate on-chip and off-chip communication links. Historically, the division is recognized as one of the forerunners in design of high-speed and low-power CMOS circuits. The group has contributed with a number of solutions and techniques utilized in advanced commercial products such as microprocessors, internet routers, cameras, data converters, etc.
