Electronic Design and Applications Technical Interest Group
Electronic Design and Applications involves device and integrated circuit fabrication, circuit and system design and simulation, and instrumentation and testing techniques
Electronic design and applications is a vital area of electrical engineering, encompassing the experimentation, design, modeling, simulation and analysis of single devices or circuits as well as complete signal processing systems. The unique combination of ECE’s educational program, and the leading edge fabrication and testing facilities provides a full cycle exposure, from concept to product realization.
ECE offers its graduate students on-going opportunities to work as Graduate Research Assistants, or Graduate Teaching Assistants. Virtually all Ph.D. students receive funding support through research or teaching.
Electronic Design and Applications faculty and students are engaged in a range of basic and applied research projects, which are supported by a range of governmental and industry sponsors, including Analog Devices, Rockwell International, AT&T, Hewlett-Packard, Texas Instruments, Lockheed-Martin, Boeing, Keithley Instruments, Cypress Semiconductor, the National Science Foundation, the National Security Agency, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency and the U.S. Army Research Office.
The group is affiliated with the Georgia Tech Computer Aided Design Laboratory (GTCAD) . Research is supported as well by a network of facilities for the design and layout of integrated circuits, as well as laboratories equipped to test analog circuits in a discrete or IC format, from frequencies that range from DC to above 110 GHz.
Electronic Design and Applications research falls within the following major areas:
- MEMs Circuit Technology
- Analog VLSI
- Radio Frequency/Wireless Integrated Circuits (RFIC)
- High Speed Mixed Signal
The depth and breadth of faculty expertise in all areas of electronic design and application is reflected in the curriculum, which provides students a strong foundation in analog circuits and systems, with an emphasis on integrated circuit technology.
