The Integrated Circuits and Systems Group (ICS) is interested in modeling, optimization and implementation of energy-efficient integrated circuits and systems, built with emerging switching/sensing technologies such as MEMS/NEMS. We are also seeking solutions for a reliable fusion of mainstream switching devices (CMOS transistors) and a range of novel technologies, such as Micro- and Nano-electromechanical relays. Another field of research in ICS is the application of ultra-low power devices, circuits and systems in the field of biomedical instrumentation and wireless, wearable healthcare.
