From Tubes to Transistors
CSL helped to lead the transition from the days of bulky vacuum tubes to the era of transistors and electronic circuits. It was among the few laboratories to work on computer-aided circuit analysis and design in the early 60s.
CSL researchers were recognized worldwide as leaders in developing graph-theoretic algorithms for the analysis, design, and fault-diagnosis of electronic circuits and systems.
Broadband Microwave Circuits
Researchers developed the first computer program for the analysis and design optimization of broadband microwave circuits. The program was used by NASA and the U of I Antenna Laboratory, and led to commercial computer programs a decade later.
