The electronic circuits and systems program involves the study of the processes of analysis and design of electronic circuits and systems. Emphasis is on analog and digital integrated circuits, very large-scale integration (VLSI), analog and digital signal processing, and system algorithms and architectures. Particular areas of study are:

  • Analog, digital, radio frequency, and microwave electronic circuits and systems
  • Analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog converters
  • Wireless communications transceivers
  • Phase-locked loops
  • Low-Power integrated Circuits
  • Parallel and multiprocessor computing
  • Electronic neural networks and associative memories
  • VLSI and algorithmic/application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) design
  • Microwave and millimeter wave integrated circuits (MIMIC)
  • Gallium arsenide ultra-high-speed integrated circuits and devices (UHSIC)
  • Algorithms and architectures for analog and digital signal processing (DSP)
  • High-speed digital communications
  • Computer arithmetic and numerical analysis of finite word length processors
  • Fault-tolerant VLSI systems
  • Design for testability, the design of reliable digital electronic systems
  • Computer-aided design (CAD)
  • Computer-aided engineering (CAE) of DSP/communications systems.
