Analog and Mixed Signal Design Group
The Analog and Mixed Signal Design Group is specialized in designing mixed signal integrated circuits and systems. The group divides into following research fields:
The focus of Analog IC Design projects is on designing analog circuits, simulations and layout. The applications cover a wide range: from high-speed transceivers to power management circuits, PLL design and bio-medical front-ends to name a few.
Most projects are based around our bio-medical SoC called VivoSoC. It consists of specialised analogue front-ends (e.g. for ExG or neural signal acquisition, PPG based measurements, neural stimulation etc.) as well as powerful, PULP-based processor cores. Applications are in the field of optogenetics stimulation, ExG recordings (wearable and implantable), in-vivo and in-vitro experiments, neuroprosthetics etc.
