Is that layout on those tiles?
Welcome to the ICE Laboratory Site @ GT
The lab has two current focus directions:
From these two areas of focus, we research
analog and digital integrated circuits and systems design,
CMOS device physics.
- Programmable and configurable,
analog and digital,
circuits, signal processing, algorithms, and systems
- Neuromorphic Engineering
Lead Professor: Dr. Jennifer Hasler
