The Integrated Circuits and Systems area focuses on the integration of circuits and systems on semiconductor platforms. Research spans the analysis, design, simulation and validation of analog, mixed-mode, (sub) mm-wave to RF, power, and digital circuits, and their applications from computation, to sensing, to cyber-physical and implantable biomedical systems.
