The  papers titled “Power Efficient Echo-Cancellation Based Hybrid for Full-Duplex Chip-to-Chip Interconnects” and “A Low-Power Half-Rate Charge-Steering Hybrid for Full-Duplex Chip-to-Chip Interconnects” propose an energy-efficient echo cancellation hybrid circuits topologies for full-duplex signaling over chip-to-chip interconnect that have a lower power consumption compared to traditional current-mode and voltage-mode hybrid circuit topology implementations. This research is expected to have significant impact in the emerging areas of semiconductor devices, microelectronics and communications, especially in the context of 5G communication, areas in which the Government of India has invested heavily under the umbrella of “Atmanirbhar Bharat”. It is also a matter of pride that the latter paper is one of the very few to have been invited for publication in an IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems-II (TCAS-II) special issue on the ISCAS conference.
