Prof. Tony Chan Carusone directs research at ISL.  He has taught and researched integrated circuits and systems at the University of Toronto since completing his Ph.D. here in 2002. He and his graduate students have received seven best-paper awards at leading conferences for their work on chip-to-chip and optical communication circuits, analog-to-digital conversion, and precise clock generation. Prof. Chan Carusone was a Distinguished Lecturer for the IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society and has co-authored the classic textbooks “Analog Integrated Circuit Design” along with D. Johns and K. Martin, and “Microelectronic Circuits” along with A. Sedra and K.C. Smith.
