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

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.

Dilruba Parvin completed her bachelors’ degree in Electrical, Electronics and Communication Engineering (EECE) from Military Institute of Science and Technology (MIST) in 2016. Currently she is pursuing her doctorate degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering at University of Missouri. She is working simultaneously in Analog/Mixed-Signal, VLSI and Devices Laboratory (AVDL) as a research assistant and in the department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) as a graduate instructor (GI).
