Our research focus is in EDA (electronic design automation) or also called DT (design technology)
, trying to enhance the way integrated circuits and systems are designed and manufactured. Some of our recent topics are
  1. Machine learning in EDA: clock tree estimation, ECO (engineering change order) power optimization, wirelength prediction, IR drop analysis
  2. Lithography optimizations: OPC (optical proximity correction), EPC (etch proximity correction), litho modeling, SRAFs (sub-resolution assist features) prediction, layout pattern synthesis
  3. Low power: Clock gating synthesis, NTV (near-threshold voltage) design
  4. Exploratory devices and circuits: TFET (tunneling FET), airgap, SADP (self-aligned double patterning), DSA (directed self-assembly), crosslink, PCM (phase-change memory)
