Each research group has its own unique research facilities. Some highlights for each group are listed below.
Analog and Mixed-Signal IC Design Group at IIS has facilities to measure all kinds of integrated circuits from low frequency biomedical front-ends over medium speed, high-resolution ADCs and DACs to high frequency radio transmitters and receivers, for on board manual to semi-automated measurements with sophisticated stand-alone equipment as well as fully automated device test on a V93000 mixed-signal and RF tester. A vapor-phase PCB-soldering system for high quality rapid soldering of prototype boards completes the equipment. The lab is run by Tom Kleier (Contact information on the right).
The Digital Systems and Circuits Group has richly equipped laboratories for digital and analog measurements including up to date oscilloscopes, waveform generators and network analyzers allowing measurements from DC to RF range. In addition, the laboratory has its own Advantest V93000 SoC IC tester with 256 channels of 1.6 Gbps digital I/O, 64 channels with 9 Gbps digital I/O, as well as Analog and RF module extensions allowing us great flexibility in testing the ICs developed at the IIS.
The Laboratory for Nanoelectronics of the Materials and Device Engineering Group has facilities for chemical synthesis, physical characterization of materials, thin film device fabrication, battery fabrication, optoelectronic device testing (LEDs, solar cells), and battery testing. The laboratory manager is Mario Mücklich (Contact information on the right).
