System Level Design

David Yeh, Director

Research in system-level design—from early design-space exploration to post-silicon validation—continues to be critically important, especially as the demand for high performance and embedded systems increases.

Overview

In the system design space, the emphasis is on advances that enable robust and power efficient designs for both high performance and embedded systems comprised of silicon and software for diverse applications. While continuing past emphases on robust and resilient design, and on low power design, going forward there will be a higher emphasis on system-level design aspects, including how software impacts design.

Research Focus

Key research areas include:

  • Heterogeneous multi-core architecture design and resilient architectures for failure resistance
  • Areas spanning early design-space exploration to post-silicon validation
  • Design solutions for thermal, power, and energy optimizations, coping with variability and reliability, and enabling re-configurability and adaptability
