Traditional design methodology for electronic engineering has been quite different from that for microwave engineering. In the past, electronic engineers usually dealt with electronics below 1 GHz, while microwave engineers worked in the frequency range of above 1 GHz. However, this traditional approach of two separated disciplines in both education and research is meeting ever-growing challenges. This is due to the fact that current and future communication technologies utilize frequency spectrums above 1 GHz. Moreover, today's microprocessor can already have an on-chip clock frequency of 2 GHz and above. In other words, the digital electronics is entering into the microwave spectrum as well. Obviously, this evolution in electronics development imposes new demands on university education and research as well as industrial development. The traditional approaches for electronic engineering and microwave engineering must meet each other towards a unified methodology in both design and product development.
Our mission of research is to work out a design methodology for merging of electronic engineering and microwave engineering. To be world-leading in the area of radio frequency (RF) design for high speed wireless communications and in the area of low power wireless sensor networking.
