The VeCAD (VLSI & Embedded Computing Architecture Design) research group focuses on domain-specific computing architecture, VLSI/SoC design, and embedded systems. In addition, the VeCAD group frequently collaborates with industry partners to ensure the research and teaching stay relevant with the latest technology trends and breakthroughs.

We involve (but not limited to) in the following research themes

  • CMOS/RF analog design
  • Computer architecture
  • VLSI & SoC design
  • FGPA system architecture and design
  • Network-on-chip interconnects
  • Design for testability & MBIST
  • Software/hardware co-design
  • Embedded system design
  • Network algorithmics and architectures

Other than supervising Ph.D. and M.Phil. students, the VeCAD research group directly supports the following programs offered by the Dept. of ECE, School of Electrical Engineering

  • Master of Engineering (Computer and Microelectronic Systems)
  • Bachelor of Engineering (Electrical – Electronic) for the following specializations: Electronic System Design and Computer Engineering
