Current Projects

Switched Mode Transmitter Design using IHP's 250nm SiGe BICMOS Technology

This is a collaborated project between SEECS-NUST and IHP Microelectronics for the design and implmentation of Switched mode Transmitter for Next Generation Wireless applications. Switched Mode transmitters are highly suitable for multi-band and multi-standard radios. The efficiency of transmitters can also be significantly improved using Swtiched Mode technolgy.

Design of Hybrid Solid State Design in Collboration with DTS Japan

The project aims to target the current bottleneck of the computing world, the secondary data storage. The idea is to intelligently use the solid state architecture in place of mechanical disks for faster and reliable access. A novel approach is adopted towards the solid state disk development leading to cutting edge research in hardware designing field.
