Introduction

The research area of the Circuits and Systems group covers the theory and applications of signal processing, including high-level digital system design.

Presentations

This 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.

The CAS group participates in four MSc tracks: MSc Telecommunication and Sensing Systems, MSc Signals and Systems, MSc Microelectronics, MSc Computer Engineering.

CAS consists of 9 professors and about 40 researchers.
