Fall 2015 course(s)

Dr. Chiu's research interests are in the design of energy-efficient, highly integrated analog-digital interface ICs, encompassing data converters (ADC, DAC), amplifiers and filters, RF transmitter and receiver front-ends, power electronics, bio-electronic interfaces, and detector front-end electronics for particle/nuclear experiments. His recent focus is on developing signal-processing algorithms and post-fabrication error-correction techniques to address high-performance analog, mixed-signal, and RF IC design and power-consumption challenges in scaled CMOS technology.

About Dallas area

Dallas/Fort Worth is the fourth largest metropolitan area in US. Often dubbed "the Silicon Valley of the South," it is a rapidly growing semiconductor, finance, energy, transportation, electronics and trade center of North America.

The area has "a vibrant university and research community, a talented pool of workers and strong business community," said the Acting U.S. Commerce Secretary Rebecca Blank in a press release when Dallas was selected to be one of the first four United States Patent and Trademark Office satellite in July 2012 (the other three are San Jose, Denver and Detroit).
