Illinois to lead NSF-funded Center for Advanced Electronics through Machine Learning

Kim Gudeman, CSL 08/02/2016 The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign has been chosen to lead a new center that aims to speed up the design and verification of microelectronic circuits and systems, reducing development cost and time-to-market for manufacturers of microelectronic products, especially integrated circuits. The center, co-led by researchers from Georgia Tech and North Carolina State University, is funded for five years through the National Science Foundation’s Industry/University Cooperative Research Centers (I/UCRC) program. Integrated circuits, or chips, power everything from smart watches to supercomputers. The semiconductor industry – perennially one of America’s top exporters – has been searching for new ways to increase performance while reducing chip size and development cost. The new Center for Advanced Electronics through Machine Learning (CAEML) will seek to accelerate advances by leveraging machine-learning…
