The Integrated Systems Laboratory is the research group of Prof. Tony Chan Carusone in the University of Toronto’s Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. Our research is focused on digital and analog integrated circuits that process information at high speed. Through our network of government and industry partners, we are having an impact on pressing real-world problems. Visit our IC Design Gallery for snapshots of past projects.
- Design Methodologies for Low-Jitter CMOS Clock DistributionDistributing a low-jitter GHz clock across a CMOS chip isn’t easy. Learn how in our open-access invited paper in the Open Journal of the IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society. Our design methodologies are backed up by measurements of a 16nm FinFET prototype.
- Lighting Up the World of Computing, Communication, and ConnectivityI’m sitting on a panel discussion, “Lighting Up the World of Computing, Communication, and Connectivity,” at UofT’s Engineering Research Days, June 25-26.
- Optimizing Transceivers to Minimize BERAlthough our communication links are generally designed and optimized to maximize SNR, that doesn’t necessarily minimize the bit error rate. The situation gets worse once forward error correction (FEC) is taken into account. Join us at ISCAS 2021 in the special session on Advanced Energy-Efficient Wireline & Optical Communications where Ph.D. candidate Ming Yang will … Read more
