Faculty members participating in circuits and systems, including computer-aided design:
The research area of circuits and systems deals with the theory, analysis and design of interconnected devices and components. Typically the circuits and systems of interest are targeted at signal processing and communications applications. Due to the complexity of most circuits and systems, computer methods and algorithms play a key role in the simulation, synthesis, layout, verification and testing of circuits and systems. Researchers and graduate students have access to current state-of-the-art circuit design and simulation tools. In addition, graduate students are encouraged to design, fabricate and test their circuits in commercially available integrated circuit processes.
