Nanoelectronics (NANO)

The Nanoelectronics group specializes in innovative ASIC (application specific integrated circuit) design and testing in advanced deep sub-micrometer CMOS (complementary metal oxide silicon) technologies, including electronic prototype PCB assembly.


Example: A bio-inspired asynchronous pixel-event vision sensor, implemented on a 90nm CMOS chip

These days we mainly use 90nm CMOS technology as well as 0.35um and 65nm, and have acces to all processes offered through the EUROPRACTICE service. Application areas are:

Some of these applications fit into two focus areas of the faculty of mathematics and natural sciences (2014-2019) in which the group participates:

  • 4DSPACE (Space Technology, Experiment, Theory and Plasma Turbulence)
  • CINPLA (Centre for Integrative Neuroplasticity)

We have advance lab facilities that we continuously enhance with new equipment for high speed and low power testing of ASICs and for electronic systems assembly including:

  • An anechoic chamber for frequencies above 1GHz for UWB wireless link, radar and antenna testing
  • Highspeed network analyzers and oscilloscopes up to 67GHz
  • A wire bonder for on-PCB chip bonding and a laser based PCB milling machine
  • A PCB/prototype system assembly line
  • A laser cutter for post production chip manipulation, and a probe station for direct die testing
