Semiconductor Design Technology
Our research focus is in EDA (electronic design automation) and DT (design technology), trying to revolutionize the way integrated circuits and systems are designed and manufactured. Some of our recent topics are 1. AI-EDA, 2. Lithography, 3. Low Power, 4. Exploratory Circuits
Byungho Choi, Gangmin Cho, Yonghwi Kwon and Professor Shin received the “Best Student Paper Awards” from Next Generation Lithography Conference 2022
Yonghwi Kwon and Professor Shin received the “Best Paper Award” from IEEE Trans. on Semiconductor Manufacturing (TSM) 2021
