Dear Visitor:

Welcome to our group's website! Our group's research focus is on energy-efficient adaptive computing; thermal/power modeling and sensing with applications for planar and 3D IC design and test; and low-power design and optimization techniques for digital ICs. We have a lot of useful material available for download including lecture notes, publications, software tools and research data. We are looking forward to hearing from you.
