The objective of our research is to develop CMOS chips using state-of-the-art technology nodes to build intelligent, multi-functional, self-powered systems that can autonomously sense and actuate in wide spectrum of applications. This will have a significant impact on improving the quality of peoples’ lives where sensing can be performed using smart devices to work for an extended period of times with minimum intervention and maintenance.
Dr. Mohammad Alhawari’s research will be focusing on two main areas: first, design innovative circuits of the mainstream modules such as analog front-ends, analog-to-digital converters, processors, and wireless. Second, integrate energy harvesting circuits to assist or replace batteries to achieve self-powered and autonomous operation. This includes efficient, low power converters, regulators and battery chargers. Alhawari seeks to develop an efficient energy scavenging platform that can harvest from a wide range of energy sources and can be integrated into many systems.
His research will also include investigating various techniques for powering bioelectronics implants for in-vivo sensing and actuating such as pacemakers, Cochlear and brain implants. Current methods use wireless power transfer, small batteries and energy harvesting. However, due to the need for miniaturization and continuous monitoring, the challenges to power these tiny devices for long periods of times are becoming elusive.
