Laboratory/research office Advanced Computer Engineering Laboratory
Our academic objective on advanced information and communication systems is to investigate novel computer engineering through empirical study of LSI chip fabrications. The data-oriented parallel computing techniques and its self-timed pipeline implementation have been proposed and applied to various embedded application systems in order to achieve higher performance, lower power, and higher dependability for future IoT (Internet of Things)-based big-data era. These studies will be extended to brain-like computer organization in future.
