Electronic and mixed signal circuit design research

The School of Electrical, Computer and Energy Engineering at Arizona State University has a strong research program in electronic and mixed-signal circuit design. The curriculum includes five upper-division undergraduate courses and over 10 graduate-level courses in the area. This is an interdisciplinary group involving faculty in the Connection One Research Center, WinTech, and Center for Solid-State Electronics Research (CSSER).

With the support of semiconductor industry, and government agencies these centers have established a state-of-the-art educational program in VLSI design, modeling, mixed-signal and radio-frequency (RF) integrated circuits design.
