Research

Faculties are engaged in research in the areas of automatic recognition of handwritten text; wireless communication including spread-spectrum  systems, interference cancellation, diversity and coding, and broadband wireless access; failure analysis, fault modeling and test for VLSI device exposed to space radiation environment; three-dimensional imaging system based on incoherent FM/CW laser-radar technology; system-on-chip implementation of wireless communication systems; improving the reliability and thermal management of high power RF devices, and implementing innovative concepts in monolithic microwave integrated circuit with emphasis on wide bandgap semiconductors; reliability and testing of digital and mixed-signal circuits, reliability modeling, self-checking circuits, analysis of temporary failures,  cache memory systems; and wireless sensor networks and networked control systems. In addition, research is conducted that analyzes and designs mitigation methods for leakage power, process variations, signal and thermal integrity in nanometer chips.
