Jan 2023 We are embarking on several new projects aiming at developing commercially-viable quantum-inspired computing chips [NEWS]
June 2021: Prof. Kim is appointed as Louis John Schnell Professor in Electrical and Computer Engineering.
December 2020: Dr. Kichul Chun (PhD, 2012) has been promoted to VP at Samsung Electronics. Prof. Bongjin Kim (PhD, 2015) has joined UC Santa Barbara as an assistant professor. Prof. Jie Gu (PhD, 2008) received the prestegious NSF Career award last year. Dr. John Keane (PhD, 2010) is promoted to a senior engineering manager at Medtronic. Congratulations to our group's alumni for their well-deserved achievements.
June 2020: Ibrahim presented his 560 coupled oscillator Ising chip at theVLSI symposium. Watch video here

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.
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.
