BWRC consists of 60 graduate students and 11 faculty engaged in pre-competitive public domain research into the design issues supporting future generations of wireless communications systems. The goals of the Center are focused on the implementation of highly integrated, low cost, CMOS Radio SoC's using advanced system architectures and algorithms. Application areas of interest include: improved spectrum utilization, cognitive radios, ultra-low power sensor networks, advanced a/d and d/a converters, RF/mm-wave circuits and low-power digital circuits. Proof-of-concept prototypes are designed using BWRC's unique design flows and fabricated using state-of-the-art CMOS processes. The Center includes a complete laboratory for circuit and system evaluation from DC to 110 GHz.
