Our mission is to build a world-class research laboratory in the application of advanced fabrication technologies to problems in information processing systems. We provide the link between these emerging technologies and their various application areas, thus facilitating their rapid exploitation. More than simply building with what is available, we look for exciting new ways to integrate existing technology into cutting edge solutions.
Primary areas of concentration are VLSI technology, RF integrated circuits, MEMS and sensors, communication applications, signal processing applications, information security and computing systems. Within these areas, team members collaborate with industry innovators and leaders such as TRLabs, DALSA and Gennum.
The University of Calgary ATIPS Laboratory is supported by iCORE and is a member of the Canadian Microelectronics Corporation and Micronet.
