Welcome to the Advanced MicroSystems and Circuits (AMSaC) group at Michigan State University. The mission of this research group is to develop integrated circuit and microsystem approaches that enable a bridging between novel nano/micro-sensor technologies and high impact biomedical and environmental applications. This research group focuses on the design, fabrication, and test of mixed-signal integrated circuits and multi-sensor microsystems based on Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) technologies and nanostructured biological and chemical components.

The AMSaC group has been actively teaching courses, conducting research, and publishing results since 2001. The AMSaC research group is dedicated to generating new technology, electronic structures, and mixed signal circuit architectures to advance the field of integrated microsystems and related areas of microelectronics.  AMSaC conducts research in the areas of VLSI Architecture, Circuits and Systems, Mixed Signal SoC design, MEMS, Digital Signal Processing, Biomedical Systems, and Computer Architecture.


Lab Director: Dr. Andrew Mason
