|Research Area:||Rethinking Analog Design|
As achieving such goal requires careful trade-off analysis of various parameters (e.g. speed, power, area, noise margin, etc.), the project leverages the analog design methodologies newly developed in the group: modeling, optimization, and simulation. We are currently exploring the trade-offs in a number of link architectures and circuit implementations and planning to build a low-power link test chip that demonstrate our findings.
