Peter Kinget’s research combines device, circuit, signal processing, and system insights to develop new concepts for designing analog and radio-frequency integrated circuits that connect the physical, analog world to the digital world of computing. His research group focuses on the design of analog and RF integrated circuits in scaled technologies and the novel systems or applications they enable in communications, sensing, and power management. His work has made significant contributions in deriving the fundamental limits on analog circuit power consumption in the context of device-size reduction and supply voltage lowering driven by the relentless semiconductor scaling into the nanoscale.

With his students, he has demonstrated ultra-low voltage analog circuits down to 0.5V, timing-based analog circuits, and ultra-wideband RF circuits. These enable aggressive scaling of critical functions for migration into advanced technologies or for the design of self-powered systems that can operate from harvested ambient energy. His research on reconfigurable RF circuits paves the way for next-generation wireless systems to support the insatiable demand for connectivity.

Kinget is a Fellow of the IEEE and has won several awards including the 2011 “Outstanding Paper on New Communication Topics” from the IEEE Communications Society. He received his engineering and PhD degrees in electrical engineering from the Katholieke Universiteit, Leuven, Belgium.
