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
