Circuits research looks to enhance the speed, reliability, energy-efficiency, manufacturability, and computer-aided design of circuits and systems. Design, modeling, and testing are integral parts of this process.

Current research projects include robust, low-power nanoscale integrated circuit design, systems-on-a-chip design for wireless communications, DSP-enhanced high-speed mixed-signal integrated circuit design, and the physics of integrated circuit failure. Work on computer-aided design includes hardware/software co-design, high-level and logic synthesis, compact modeling, physical design, and design for manufacturing.
