Prof. Chiueh’s group, the Microsystem Research Laboratory (MSRL), focuses on signal processing algorithm and SDR implementation related to communication baseband systems, as well as nㄍural networks SoC design and applications. These topics require knowledge in digital communication, signal processing, neural networks, and IC design. Languages and tools such as C, matlab, OpenCL, and Verilog are used to design GPU-based SDR, FPGA and ASIC.
Our previous research results include
* IEEE 802.11a/n WLAN baseband IC
* Software-defined radio (SDR) real-time wireless system platform (LTE, NOMA, UDN)
* 3GPP W-CDMA beam-forming baseband IC for base-station
* MC-CDMA baseband IC for next-generation cellular communication
* Impulse radio ultra wideband (UWB) baseband IC
* DVB-T/DVB-H baseband IC design
* IEEE 802.16 (WiMAX) baseband processing
