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.
Sep. 2017: Saurabh's paper on a 14nm logic soft error test chip has been accepted to IEDM as a best student paper candidate.
July 2017: Our group wins the ISLPED best paper award, two years in a row. Congratulations Muqing and Chen!
May 2017 Muqing's ISLPED paper entitled "A Data Remanence based Approach to Generate 100% Stable Keys from an SRAM Physical Unclonable Function" is selected as one of three best paper candidates.
May 2017: Chen Zhou is selected as a recipient of the prestegious doctoral dissertation fellowship.
