Applying Research

CDADIC Technology Breakthroughs

"The on-going research at CDADIC enables the semiconductor industry to leverage center innovations as new markets are explored and new products developed."  Paul Kempf, Jazz Semiconductor

The National Science Foundation acknowledged CDADIC for research that has led to technology breakthroughs.  Members from industry identified a number of significant accomplishments made by CDADIC researchers.  Here is a sample of the NSF acknowledgements:

Increasing Chip Speed

Designing and implementing the world's fastest logic technique that will double computer speed and greatly enhance video and speech processing technology capabilities.

Analog-Digital Converters

Advancing the state-of-the-art in analog-digital converters, reducing power consumption while improving performance of mixed-mode integrated circuits.

Integrated Circuit Protection Systems

Designing tools to predict the effect of static electricity on a chip that will provide industry with the ability to fabricate more reliable, secure integrated circuits and move products on the market more quickly and economically.

Phased-array antenna

Developing a low-cost phased array transmit/receive system on a monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC) chip based on silicon germanium technology.  This research will dramatically increase the use of phased-array antennas in applications that are critical in aerospace and satellite communication systems.

Low-Voltage Analog Circuits

Designing new approaches to low-voltage CMOS analog circuits.  Results will make more complex mixed-signal CMOS integrated circuits possible.

SOI Technology

Using silicon-on-insulator (SOI) technology to develop next-generation circuits.  These new circuits will operate at a much greater speed and require far less power to operate than others on the market.

Low-Cost MIMO Tranceivers

Developing low-cost multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) transmit/receiver systems that will dramatically increase the use of MIMO transceivers for next-generation defense communication applications and emerging cognitive radio systems.
