The Very Large Integrated Systems (VLSI) Research Group at the University of Minnesota focuses on developing core circuit technologies for enabling smart and energy-efficient integrated systems. Applications we target range from machine learning and neuromorphic computing, hardware security, internet-of-things, medical devices, sensor networks, radiation hardened chips, to beyond CMOS computing. Our group’s research frequently appears in top VLSI technology and circuit design publications such as ISSCC, IEDM, VLSI, CICC, IRPS, NSREC, and various IEEE journals.
October 2018: Minsu's eFlash based neural network paper (in collaboration with Anaflash) is accepted to IEDM. This year, our group publishes in all three major VLSI conferences; ISSCC, VLSI Symposium, and IEDM.
Sep. 2017: Saurabh's paper on a 14nm logic soft error test chip has been accepted to IEDM as a best student paper candidate.
