Dr. Engelís primary research interests are in the area of integrated circuit design.† He has worked on a wide variety of projects.† These include fluid level monitoring, remote monitoring of mice, digital hearing aids, and portable medical devices .
This work is carried out in the VLSI Design Research Laboratory.† The lab is well equipped with five workstations, a large flatbed HP plotter, and a wide variety of test equipment including a modest setup for probing micro-chips.† Cadence EDA tools are used extensively in all of Dr. Engelís research.† Dr. Engel works closely with the Nuclear Reactions Group at Washington University and is also a member of the engineering schoolís robotics research group.
Dr. Engel has three active research projects:
Development of a Pulse Shape Discrimination (PSD) IC
Development of an Improved ASIC for use with Si Strip Detectors (HINP)
Development of a Multi-Channel Discriminator IC (DISC)
Pass projects include:
Development of Globally Asynchronous Locally Synchronous (GALS) Design Strategies
Development of ASIC for a Brain Computer Interface (BCI)
Dr. Engel and his graduate students have designed several integrated
circuits have been successfully fabricated through MOSIS.†
Dr. Engel and his graduate students will present a poster at the SORMA 2010 conference (
