VLSI System and Computation Lab (VSC-LAB) at UC Riverside
VSC-LAB at UCR works on cutting-edge nanometer VLSI design methodology and develops design tools 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.
Our research is sponsored by the federal government agencies, electronic design automation industry, State of California and University of California.
