Printed Electronics

We investigate on the technology and characterization of printed metal oxide electronics. Our work includes
  • fabrication of printed transistors based on inorganic
    semiconductors such as InO, ZnO and electrolyte gating for field effect transistors(EG-FETs)
  • electrical characterization of logic and passive elements (e.g. transistors, digital standard cells, ring oscillators, latches, flip flops, resistances and parasitic capacitances)
  • characterization of noise and small signal paramteters
  • low parasitic, high performance wiring concepts with printable materials

Simulation and Virtualization of Electronic Systems

We develop dedicated design flows and modeling techniques within industry standard EDA frameworks. We currently concentrate on the
  • development of new compact models
  • SPICE modeling of digital and analog building blocks
  • P-cell development for printed electronic layouts
  • library development
  • Monte-Carlo-Simulation, Corner Modelling
  • circuit AC and DC analysis

VLSI Circuit Design and Testing

We design, fabricate and test RFID/NFC systems (SOCs) suitable for passive or semi-passive applications.
  • ultra low power SOCs
  • low power circuit design
  • PCB design
  • RFID/NFC stand alone modules
  • technology assessments based on foundry PDKs
  • IP development (mixed-signal, hybrid technologies, antenna designs)
