About

The Integrated Circuit Design Lab is established to contribute to the echo-system integrated circuit design in Pakistan. The main objective of the IC design lab is to decimate the knowledge and methodologies of real silicon tapeout along with circuit design to its graduate students. ICD Lab is equipped with all the necessary CAD tools and IC Design Kits needed for an IC- tapeout. The main research area is Analog, RF and Mix Signal ICs. ICD lab is currently hosting a dedicated MS in IC Design program with more than 30 graduate students. The MS program offered in the Lab is unique of its kind.

Our MS students recently taped out Eight projects in August 2021 on two 1x1mm2 ICs, Each IC has four projects intelligently integrated on it. The projects cover the scope of; Digital, analog, Mixed-signal, and RF IC domains shown below. The lab also has several high impact IEEE journal papers and US patents and real-world working ICs to its credit.

 

2021 Tapeout Projects:

Areas of Expertise:

         Ultra-Low power on chip sensors

         CMOS Broadband RF frontends

         Over-Sampling Receiver

         CMOS Resonant Rectifier for Power Harvesting Implantable

         Special Expertise for BiST and DfT

 

Radio Frequency Circuits, Sensors, and Systems Lab (RFCS2) is established to create a culture of innovation and then put the innovation into industrial practice as a final step. The primary focus of the LAB is to provide the students and engineers with the tools and environment which promotes the creation of new knowledge and innovation. The lab has several high impact IEEE journal papers and US patents to its credit. RFCS2 lab is equipped with all basic tools like RF sources, Spectrum and Vector Network Analyzer (VNA) and PCB milling machine.

The researcher in RFCS2 are well trained to carryout world class research and innovation to meet the industry needs. The RFCS2 lab has developed local and international academic and industrial collaboration, to provide feasible, real-time, and cost-effective industrial solutions.
