This photo (with Dr. Muresan and Haleh Vahedi) shows a prototype chip that integrates an analog technique for secure cryptographic applications. The chip was designed with industry-grade software tools and fabricated in a low-power 180-nm CMOS technology.This photo (with Dr. Muresan and Haleh Vahedi) shows a prototype chip that integrates an analog technique for secure cryptographic applications.

Here Jeffrey Liu receives a best paper award from the president of IEEE Canada at the IEEE Canadian Conference on Electrical and Computer Engineering. The paper is entitled "An envelope tracking H-bridged audio amplifier with improved efficiency and THD less than 0.1%."
We work on analog and mixed-signal integrated microsystems including:
- Low-voltage low-power integrated circuits
- Integrated power converters and charge pumps
- Integrated circuits for wireless/wireline communications and sensor networks

Ethics in engineering
Besides being technically competent, engineers need to be reflective and ethically aware, because they have special responsibilities related to issues like safety, health, and the environment. Those responsibilities are expressed in ethical codes of professional organizations, such as the Code of Ethics of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).

The value of an academic degree depends on the integrity of the work done by the student to earn that degree. Therefore it is important that all the members of the university community maintain an atmosphere of integrity in all aspects of academic life. The tutorial on academic integrity of the University of Guelph helps you understand academic integrity and it is a good first step towards engaging in thoughtful behaviour and keeping a high level of honor in your work.
