OverviewThe research area of the Circuits and Systems group covers the theory and applications of signal processing, including high-level digital system design.
PresentationsThis link will direct you to some slide presentations which are used to introduce the group to starting MSc students.
The complexity of electronic circuits is ever increasing, and so is their design. Two drivers are (i) already phenomenal integration densities are still doubling every 18 months (Moore's law), and (ii) new advanced applications require integrated solutions with increased intelligence and immense processing power. The main goal in our research program is to provide a sound mathematical framework for synthesis and analysis problems in the complete trajectory from system application, algorithm design, mapping to a hardware architecture or embedded system, VLSI circuit design, and finally the design verification.
Our system applications are taken from several areas that require new mathematical insights, eg. wireless communications, distributed networks, radio astronomy and biomedical applications, and we limit ourselves to the central signal processing aspects of these. The objective is to develop efficient signal processing algorithms and to compile these onto embedded systems and the underlying physical circuits. The new insights are incorporated in design tools and actual designs.
EducationThe CAS group participates in four MSc tracks: MSc Telecommunication and Sensing Systems, MSc Signals and Systems, MSc Microelectronics, MSc Computer Engineering.
ResearchCAS consists of 9 professors and about 40 researchers.
BSc Group at ELCA awarded with IEEE Best High Tech Start-up Business PlanAt the Bachelor Electrical Engineering Graduation Grand Finale held on 7 July 2017, the six-student group formed by Bilal Bouazzata, Laurens Buijs, Jun Feng, Martijn Hoogelander, Alexander Louwerse and Niels van der Kolk received the IEEE Best High Tech Start-up Business Plan on the topic of their graduation project at ELCA.
