Prof. Chan Carusone delivered a webinar on CMOS Transceiver Circuits for Short-Reach Optical Communication attended live by 100’s of engineers from around the world.  It is now available from the IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society (free for members).

Prof. Chan Carusone is giving a seminar to analog/mixed-signal design researchers at Texas A&M University on “CMOS Transceiver Circuits For Short-Reach Optical Communication” on the afternoon of May 3rd. 

Three papers from ISL have been accepted for presentation at this year’s Custom Integrated Circuits Conference in May in Austin, Texas, including a benchmark low-power LTE receiver, and transceiver circuits for short-reach optical communication up to 40Gbps.

Prof. Chan Carusone presented a tutorial on Signal Integrity Analysis for Gb/s Links at the International Solid-State Circuits Conference in San Francisco February 5, 2017. Signal integrity analysis permits circuit designers to model and evaluate high-speed I/O with fast simulations, both for quick evaluation of design alternatives and accurate high-level verification. This tutorial covers theoretical underpinnings and practical tools for behavioral modeling and simulation of wireline chip-to-chip links. Attendees learn to accurately model lossy interconnect, packaging parasitics, and transceiver front-ends. Nondeterministic impairments such as noise and jitter, and the modeling of linear and decision-feedback equalization, are also treated. Analysis techniques amenable to both circuit-level (netlist) simulators and high-level modeling (e.g. Matlab) tools are covered.

Prof. Chan Carusone was an invited speaker at the IEEE Second Workshop on Solid State Circuits – Design, Technology and Applications in Bucharest, Romania, and at the Tyndall National Institute, Cork, Ireland in October 2016.

Prof. Chan Carusone will be delivering a Distinguished Lecture for the IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society at the Tyndall National Institute, Cork, Ireland October 21, 2016. Details are available here.
