Research Area

The general research of the ELAB is the design of mixed mode integrated electronics with emphasis on analog aspect. The field of competences was extended, upstream, with the physics of the electronics devices, and downstream with the integrated systems. In order to maintain the know-how and achieve a good international visibility a new design methodology based on device behavior has also been developed and encapsulated into CAD platforms.

The nano-electronics emerging devices and their integration into the world of electronics functions is a targets of our research activities.

The Smart power grid optimization and energy management using low power low voltage analog VLSI emulation approach, is an emerging niche, our achievement in this field is today well established.
