The Integrated Circuits and Microsystems Research Group at the University of Arizona conducts research to advance the state-of-the-art in the area of mixed-signal and RF integrated circuits and systems. Our lab's primary goal is to enhance circuit performance (speed, power consumption and reliability) for various applications and to utilize challenging research projects to educate and train students with the vision, knowledge and skills needed to succeed.

Specific research topics of current interest include high-speed circuits for electrical and optical backplane communications, clocking and synchronization circuits (PLL, DLL and CDR), reconfigurable RF transceivers for wireless cellular and basestation applications, analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog converters, circuits and systems for radiation and extreme temperature environments, and mixed-signal and RF/microwave technologies for biomedical, memory, MEMS, sensor and energy applications.
