Asynchronous VLSI

Asynchronous VLSI Area

The E2S2C group has a long history in asynchronous VLSI design, including two startups, Timeless Design Automation and Reduced Energy Microsystems. Former PhD student Georgios Dimou was involved with both start-ups and is now the Co-Founder and CTO of Niobium Microsystems, a third start-up using asynchronous design to solve real-world problems. We are currently sub-contracting to Niobium and will support their efforts designing asynchronous network-on-chips for an accelerator for fully homomorphic encryption and radiation-hardened applications.

Currently involved students: Moises Herrera
