Analog/Mixed Signal VLSI and Devices Laboratory (AVDL)


Welcome to AVDL

We are a research group led by Dr. Syed Kamrul Islam in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Missouri, Columbia, MO 65211. The research efforts in Analog/Mixed-Signal VLSI and Devices Laboratory (AVDL) are focused on analog, mixed-signal integrated circuit design in bulk CMOS and SOI technologies, modeling of semiconductor devices for high frequency, high power and high temperature applications, bio-microelectronics, carbon nanotechnology and monolithic sensors.

In AVDL, we conduct research in the following areas:


Semiconductor Devices

Ultra-Wide Bandgap Semiconductors

High Temperature Electronics


Analog/Mixed-Signal Integrated Circuits

Low-Power Energy Harvesters

Low-Power Biomedical Devices

AI/Machine Learning (ML) Integrated Biomedical Devices

ASIC Design

Digital Signal Processing

Digital Hardware Design

Low-power biomedical devices have the ability to transform human health, from identifying chronic kidney disease to predicting diabetes and detecting respiratory issues. At Mizzou Engineering, you’ll find that work happening in the Analog/Mixed Signal and Devices Laboratory in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS). Meet Syed Kamrul Islam, who’s at the helm of both.

Omiya Hassan is a PhD student in electrical engineering and computer science. She is a graduate instructor and works as a research assistant in the Analog/Mixed Signal VLSI Devices Laboratory, where she focuses on the design and development of low-power integrated circuits. She recently led the research team to the finals of an international circuit design contest, something one undergraduate says would not have been possible without Hassan’s mentorship.

Student Appreciation: Dr. Islam Commended as Outstanding Professor

The graduating seniors at the College of Engineering, acknowledging the profound impact Dr. Islam has had on their academic journey, selected him unanimously for the "Certificate of Appreciation". Dr. Islam's commitment to excellence and his unwavering support for his students have been instrumental in shaping their educational experiences and preparing them for successful careers in engineering. The AVDL team and the College of Engineering extend their heartfelt congratulations to Dr. Islam for this well-deserved recognition.
