Hoyos, Sebastian individual record
Associate Professor

My research focuses on the design and implementation of mixed-signal processing systems, techniques and algorithms that jointly design for analog and digital systems with the objective of reducing power consumption and complexity or enhancing performance of high-speed and high dynamic range wireline and wireless communication systems.
