A highly equipped facility, the lab has test capability for the full range circuitry: RF circuits, RF passive components and RF circuits such as oscillators and low-noise amplifiers, broadband and electro-optical circuits, and analog, mixed signal and digital circuits. Digital circuits include processors and controllers used in a system-on-a-chip. A probe station allows testing of wafers. Testing can also be done on packaged parts. Research includes analog and radio frequency integrated circuit design with applications in cell phone components such as amplifiers to help pick up very faint signals, computer applications such as components to enable wireless hook-up to the Internet, or wireless medical applications, such as heart-rate monitors.
