Prof., Head of CAS research unit
Cicuit theory, IC & RFIC design

Circuits and Systems Research Unit
Faculty of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering

Timo Rahkonen has been a professor in Circuit theory and IC circuit design since 1996. He is teaching circuit theory, filter theory and RFIC design.
His research interests span from dc instrumentation to sub-THz. Designs have been made using CMOS, BiCMOS, HBT, GaAs and CMOS SOI technologies.

Long-term interest is to understand nonlinear distortion effects and try to compensate them.

Some highlights:

  • co-leading design of 28 Ghz beamforming chip in 45 nm SOI
  • co-leading development of 290 GHz HBT receiver
  • development of two in-house distortion contribution analysis tools
  • analog and digital error correction techniques in A/D and D/A converters
