Welcome to the VLSI Research Group
The VLSI Research Laboratory at the University of Minnesota focuses on developing core circuit technologies for enabling smart and energy-efficient integrated systems. Applications we target range from internet-of-things, neuromoprhic computing, microprocessors, portable computing, sensor networks, medical devices, radiation hardened integrated circuits, to beyond CMOS computing. Our group's research frequently appears in top publications such as ISSCC, IEDM, VLSI, CICC, IRPS, and JSSC.
Sep. 2015: Prof. Kim is promoted to full professor.
June 2015: Good luck to students going for summer internships: Jongyeon (HGST), Won Ho (IBM), Qianying (IBM), Saurabh (Intel), and Somnath (Rambus and Intel).
May 2015: Our group will present three papers at the 2015 VLSI Technology and Circuits Symposium on topics ranging from bang-bang digital PLL, AC electromigration, and spintronics based analog-to-digital conversion.
