VLSI System and Computation Lab (VSC-LAB) at UCR focus on cutting-edge nanometer VLSI design methodology and design tool development for current and future nanometer System-On-a-Chip VLSI and real-time embeded systems. We address foundamental VLSI design challenges and enable a quantum leap to a new generation of nanometer SoC chip and systems.
