Integrated Circuit Design

Chair: ICD

Introduction

ICs are at the heart of the rapid developments in mobile telecommunications, multi-media and internet, and in numerous other applications. IC design is of large industrial importance, which is even more true for analogue circuit design, in which the European electronics industry has a leading position.

In the Integrated Circuit Design group (ICD-group) we do research on integrated transceivers in CMOS technology. This includes transmitters and receivers for wireless and wireline communication systems. We develop clever IC design techniques to realize portable, fast and energy efficient communication systems. Current projects are in the field of frequency synthesisers, radio frontends, RF beamforming and cognitive radio.
