Integrated circuit technology is a key enabler in shrinking large systems into hand-held devices, and it has been a primary driver of more than 50 years of electronics innovation in computation, communication, and imaging. Emerging Internet of Things, precision health, and 5G communication applications are driving innovation from devices to systems. The Integrated Electronics research cluster emphasizes cooperation and innovation amongst faculty members whose research focuses on various aspects of integrated circuits and systems, microelectronic components and sensors, and advanced communication systems.

Faculty expertise and research includes analog, digital, and RF/microwave circuit design and devices; on-chip interconnect design and modeling; package modeling including package-level antenna design; integrated sensor systems; communication architectures and protocols; biosensors and bioelectronics; and, advanced wireless and wireline systems.

Collectively, our research forms the physical basis for personal, portable electronics devices of the future.

Matt Johnston, Tejasvi Anand, and Arun Natarajan discuss collaborations in their state-of-the-art Analog/Mixed Signal Lab that was recently upgraded with help from Tektronix.
Are faster networks with more users and devices possible? Researchers at Oregon State with help from Tektronix are advancing technologies to push the boundaries of speed in data collection and transmission. Matt Johnston, Arun Natarajan, and Tejasvi Anand explain their research that spans the networking chain from sensors to wireless and wired transmission.
