- CurrentWe are looking for PhD students or postdoc researchers to join us in 2020.
Congratulate Zhengyu, Xi on our paper acceptance into ISSCC'21. For the first time, a CMOS "analog RAM" is designed to accelerate CNN operation in a Compute-in-Memory design with record-breaking performance.
Congratulate Tianyu, Yuhao on paper acceptance into Microachitecture (MICRO) conference. A unique neural network based RISC-V architecture was demonstrated with silicon test chip showing significant performance and cost benefits.
Congratulate Tianyu Jia for receiving Best PhD Dissertation Award in ECE Department!!!
Congratulate Zhengyu Chen, Sihua Fu, Qiankai Cao on the acceptance of the mixed-signal Generative Adversarial Network (GAN) accelerator into Symposia of VLSI Technology and Circuits 2020.
Our team member Yijie Wei presented a tiny gesture-sensing chip with embedded distributed neural network classifier and online training capability for biomedical rehabilitation applications in CICC conference. This is the first chip with fully integrated analog front end and deep neural network classifier for the goal of getting advaned AI into wearable devices.
Congratulate Tianyu Jia for receiving ISSCC Predoctoral Achievement Award!!!
Our paper on CNN accelerator with compute-adaptive clocking technique is accepted into ISSCC 2020. Congratulations to Tianyu Jia and Yuhao Ju.
Prof. Gu gave a talk in Argonne National Lab on acceleration of modern computing tasks using emerging circuit techniques.
Prof. Gu received the prestigious NSF Career Award.
Zhengyu Chen presented our design methodology for time domain circuits in this year's Design Automation Conference (DAC).
Tianyu Jia and Zhengyu Chen join Apple and Google for summer internship. Congratulations.
We have two papers accepted into ISSCC'19 including a time-domain dynamic time warping accelerator design and an GPU design with instruction driven ultra-dynamic clock scaling. Congratulations to Zhengyu Chen and Tianyu Jia.
We hosted a nationwide diversity workshop for minority students. More information is in circuit & architecture summer school . We thank NU, CRA-W, Intel's generous support and all the invited speakers. The workshop received overwhemingly positive feedback from each attendee. Hopefully, we will do it again soon.
We delivered an interesting work on distributed neural network design
for biomedical physiological signal processing. With built-in machine
learning capability, the edge processing device consumes only
micro-Watts power and can communicate with each other for collaborated
neural network operation.
