Prof. Andreas Peter Burg

Associate Professor

Andreas Burg graduated in Electrical Engineering from EPFZ in 2000. He continued his studies in the Laboratory of Integrated Systems where, in 2006, he submitted his doctoral thesis on very large scale integrated systems (VLSI) for multi-antenna (MIMO) communication systems. During his studies, he was a visiting researcher at Bell Labs - Lucent Technologies, in Holmdel, U.S.A. In 2007, he co-founded Celestrius Inc., a start-up company working on MIMO wireless communication systems. From 2007 to 2009, he worked as post-doc at ETHZ and as director of VLSI at Celestrius Inc. In 2009 he became an SNF Assistant professor and head of the signal processing circuits and systems group at the Integrated Systems Laboratory at EPFZ. Since 2011 he has been Tenure Track Assistant Professor at EPFL, where he is the head of the Telecommunications Circuits Lab (TCL).


Research Area

The Telecommunications Circuits Laboratory (TCL) focuses on the development of circuits and systems for digital signal processing with a strong focus on systems and applications in the area of telecommunications. Our research is concerned with the development of low-complexity signal processing algorithms and communication technologies, with the design of technology demonstrators and prototypes for performance assessment, and with the hardware-efficient, low-power implementation of digital integrated circuits for various telecommunication systems. In our work, we focus on a system-level perspective and we try to consider both algorithm and implementation aspects jointly. In particular, we are interested in new, spectrally efficient communication technologies such as multi-antenna wireless communication systems which serve a wide range of applications from cellular systems to local high speed wireless networks. Furthermore, we are interested in wireless and wireline communication links with very high throughput and processing requirements that challenge even the most advanced silicon process technologies. Finally, we are interested in linking concepts from communications (e.g., coding) to future deep submicron integrated circuit technologies which are likely to suffer from reliability issues.
