Integrated Circuits and Systems group, IIT Madras

Welcome to the homepage of the Integrated Circuits and Systems group in the Department of Electrical Engineering at IIT Madras. We are located in a beautiful wooded campus in southern Chennai.

Our faculty and students are involved in research in the areas of analog, mixed signal, and RF design, analysis and simulation of noise in circuits, VLSI DSP architectures, and reconfigurable computing. Click on the tabs above to find out more about us and our research.

We regularly have openings for students in our research group. If you wish to study here, go through this page for more information and contact the faculty member working in your area of interest. Here is a short video about our group:


  • A webinar outlining the past work and future goals of out center for excellence in “RF, Analog and Mixed Signal Integrated Circuits” was held on 22nd October 2021 online. It was moderated by Prof. Mike Chen of the University of Southern California. Shanthi Pavan, Janakiraman V., Saurabh Saxena, and Nagendra Krishnapura answered questions from the audience. It can be viewed online at this link.

A warm welcome to all of them!
  • 6 papers from the group have been accepted for presentation at the 2021 International Symposium on Circuits and Systems. Congratulations to all authors.
  • Abhishek Kumar and Pramod S M have joined our research group. A warm welcome to them!
  • The book Understanding Delta-Sigma Converters (2nd Edition) authored by Shanthi Pavan, Richard Schreier and Gabor Temes has received the 2020 Outstanding Professional Book Award from the Wiley-IEEE Press. The Wiley-IEEE Press Professional Book Award annually recognizes the authors of an outstanding monograph or professional book published by Wiley-IEEE Press during a three-year window prior to the year of the nomination, in a field relevant to the IEEE.
  • Shanthi Pavan will present an invited talk Architectural and Design Challenges in High-Resolution Continuous-Time Delta-Sigma Data Converters in the forum Pushing the Frontiers in Accuracy in Data Converters and Analog Circuits at the International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC) in February 2021.
