Research at High Speed Integrated Circuits and Systems Lab at UC Davis

  
Abstract: 
This talk will introduce the research at High Speed Integrated Circuits and Systems Lab at UC Davis supervised by Prof. Jane Gu. Research in our lab focuses on high speed integrated circuits and systems design, including RF/mm-Wave/sub-mm Wave/THz circuits/systems in CMOS technology and beyond. We are excited in the research to boost circuit speed, lower power consumption and enhance circuit reliability for various application areas, including high speed wireless/wire-line communications, imaging and sensing systems, interconnect etc. This talk focuses on two topics: THz Interconnect and On-Chip Phase Noise Filter. THz Interconnect, leveraging its unique spectrum position, holds the potential to utilize the benefits of both electrical interconnect’s low cost, high scalability processes and optical interconnect’s low loss channels. Therefore, it is promising to boost all the three key metrics of interconnect: bandwidth density, energy efficiency, and low cost, to address the long-standing issue challenges. This talk will discuss the design of both active and passive components for THz Interconnect.  Phase noise is the ultimate performance limits for electronics systems, such as SNR of electronics, BER of digital communications, and resolution of data converters. This talk will also present our delay line discriminator PD/CP based phase noise filter circuit, which demonstrates the up to 16 dB phase noise suppression with the sensitivity of -116 dBc/Hz at 1 MHz offset for 10 GHz clock.
