Signal Processing and VLSI Lab


     The Laboratory supports a broad range of research activities including
  1. analog, mixed-signal and RF integrated circuits with focus on communication and biomedical applications,
  2. design and VLSI implementation of high performance efficient digital filters,
  3. reconfigurable computing and electronic design automation,
  4. embedded system design for video and multimedia applications,
  5. silicon sensors, MEMS, and integrated systems,
  6. simulation and modelling of sub-0.1 micron channel length MOSFETS.
     The facilities are being used concurrently to support the laboratory classes, including
  1. Integrated Analog Design(EE3408) where each student undertakes a 24 hour design project,
  2. Integrated Digital Design(EE4415) where each student goes through an ASIC design project to synthesize a RISC CUP core,
  3. Embedded Hardware System Design (EE4218) where students will learn system-level design methodology and undertake team project involving SoC-based design of video compression tools(s).
     The laboratory houses a network of servers and Linux workstations where a variety of software can be accessed. The software includes Cadence, Synopsys, Mentor Graphics and Agilent Advanced Design System, Xilinx, etc. The lab also houses various integrated circuit test equipment, including a Cascade probe station, noise figure meter, network analyser, parameter analyser, RF signal generator, pulse generators, logic analyser, VCO/PLL analyser, wire bonder, microscope, oven for high temperature testing and a number of general-purpose test instruments, such as oscilloscopes, signal generators and dc power supplies.
