■ Research Area
MSICL researches Analog/Mixed signal circuit design. The major research topic is Data converters, which converts analog signal to digital signal or vice-versa. This research topic becomes more important and crucial along with the development of semi-conductor. As digital circuits become more popularly used with advanced calculation power and reduced consuming power, analog circuits become essential blocks that transfer the nature signal to digital systems because all the nature signals related to human life are analog signals. Therefore, the research on analog circuits is essential with the development of circuit systems. However, the number of analog circuit designer is insufficient compared to analog circuit demands.
Besides, MSICL researches readout circuits for various applications. For example, we have dealt with several readout circuits for PC-RAM, which is one of the next generation Memory, Bio-sensor for health-care, and CMOS Image Sensors.
