Welcome to Scalable Computing Systems Laboratory (SCALE)

SCALE is a member of the LEMS network of laboratories.


Dear Visitor:

Welcome to our group's website! Our research projects focus on advancing the scalability of digital computing chips and systems by making them more energy efficient. Current projects include: (1) energy-efficient adaptive system management for servers; (2) thermal/power sensing, modeling and management for multi-core heterogeneous processors; and (3) low-power approximate and custom computing. We have useful material available for download including lecture notes, publications, software tools and research data. We are looking forward to hearing from you.
