Circuits, Sensor, and Instrumentation Laboratory

The Circuits, Sensors, and Instrumentation Laboratory (CSIL) supports circuit design, fabrication, component testing, and controlled sensor characterization.

The key capabilities provided by the CSIL include the ability to:

  1. Design sensor components and integrated systems capable of meeting research needs
  2. Fabricate precision circuit components and perform assembly in-house; clean-room assembly may be coordinated through the STL
  3. Enable precision measurements to characterize sensors and electronics
  4. Support synergistic research activities with other laboratories


  • LPKF U4 for precision laser circuit structuring for high-frequency systems
  • SMD Circuit Assembly supported by LPKF Protoprint (stencils and masks), Protoplace (assisted pick-and-place), and Protoflow Oven (reflow)
  • Reconfigurable large systems test suite of 1,100 square feet (22 feet by 52 feet); includes 300 square feet of reconfigurable RF absorber to reduce RF echoes in tests
  • This lab provides direct access to the AMS-8500 anechoic chamber
