I maintain a broad interest in solving problems in the fields of analog and mixed-signal circuit design and integrated power management circuits. Recent projects include: linear low-dropout regulators, switched-capacitor power converters, inductor-based DC-to-DC converters, and supervisory circuits for hardware security. I also have a budding interest in designing and developing micro-controller sensor systems using open-source hardware/software platforms, such as Arduino.
The VLSI (Very-Large-Scale Integrated circuits) Laboratory at NMSU has two locations in Thomas and Brown Hall, Rm 308 and Rm 208. Three professors teach and do research in these laboratories with their students: Jaime Ramirez-Angulo, Paul M. Furth, and Wei Tang.
Below is a gallery of chips fabricated through our group.
