Research Topics


Research Group on Computer-Aided Engineering of Circuits and Systems (CAECAS)




The general research topics of interest for the CAECAS group include:

  • Computer-aided and knowledge-based approaches to modeling, simulation and optimization of passive and active devices, circuits and systems

  • CAD techniques for modeling, design, and optimization of RF and microwave circuits, using high-frequency circuit simulators, EM simulators, and multi-physics simulators

  • Algorithmic design optimization of RF and microwave circuits (including wireless and high-speed electronic circuits and devices) exploiting surrogate-based optimization (SBO), space mapping, and artificial neural networks

  • Computationally efficient optimization methods based on highly accurate but computationally expensive simulators

  • Statistical analysis and design, including statistical parameter extraction, yield optimization, and design for manufacturability

  • CAD methodologies for signal and power integrity, including high-speed interconnects and power delivery networks (PDN)
