IC&EMC Lab - Integrated Circuits and Electromagnetic Compatibility Laboratory
The researchers in the IC&EMC Lab focus on integrated circuit (IC) design, modelling and testing as well as electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) issues of ICs and electronic subassemblies.
R&D activities of this research group include various topics, from modelling of electronic devices to design and modelling of electronic systems:
- modelling of electronic devices
- design and modelling of interconnect lines on chip and on PCB going from low frequencies up to GHz-frequency range
- design of integrated circuits (operational amplifiers, voltage and current references, RFID subcircuits, AD/DA converters, frequency dividers, charge pumps, ...)
- design and test of integrated circuits and electronic subassemblies with respect to electromagnetic compatibility/immunity (TEM cell, IC-stripline standard, DPI, ...)
- design of electronic systems (Transmission Line Pulsing system, CBCM system, GaN RF amplifier, embedded design based on PIC/ARM/Arduino/8051 microcontrollers, ...)
- design and characterization of memory test chips for process yield analysis in different semiconductor processes based on 32-bit RAM and ROM IPs provided by a third party
We co-operate on these topics with several international companies, universities and research institutions.
Students linked to this research group and who work on their BSc/MSc seminars, BSc/MSc projects and final BSc/MSc thesis often go to international companies to do internship within the Erasmus programme, which often results in the final MSc thesis research done in an international environment (IMEC, ON Semiconductor, Bosch, Infineon).
Students mostly work on the topics closely related to our domestic or international projects performed by the researchers in the IC&EMC Lab.
