System and Circuit Technology

Novel Systems Enabled by Micro-/Nanoelectronics

Modern nano- and microelectronic technologies allow the combination of complex digital circuits, analogue circuits, and novel devices on a single chip. In future, this will allow the construction of new systems in which microchips can, for example, perceive the environment by means of sensors or operate with extremely high energy efficiency. We conduct research on novel integrated circuits for the intelligent technical systems of tomorrow.

The department Circuit and System Technology is engaged in the research on Integrated Micro-/Nano-Electronic Circuits for Communications and Sensors. Our research approach is to investigate the potential of novel nano-/microelectronic devices for novel systems and applications. Hence in contrast to the development of the novel micro-/nano-electronic devices themselves, our approach is to take these devices as given and to focus on modeling, novel circuit design techniques, as well as novel systems and applications.

Research topics are:

  • Broadband communication ICs up to 100 Gbit/s and Silicon Photonics
  • High-frequency transceivers up to more than 100 GHz for communications and sensing
  • Energy-efficient RF transceivers for wireless sensor networks
  • Mixed-Analog-Digital Systems

Prof. Christoph Scheytt leads the department Circuit and System Technology since March 2012. A list of his publications can be found here.
