  • Design smaller, cheaper, reliable, high performance, and energy-efficient mixed-signal microchips
  • Silicon implementation of high-throughput communication systems
  • Ability to change your life

Silicon Systems Research Laboratory (SSRL) is dedicated to the development of computer-aided technologies, software tools and theoretical foundations for designing smaller, cheaper, reliable, high performance and energy-efficient mixed-signal microchips, as well as to silicon implementation of high-throughput communication systems.

Our graduates are working in Motorola, Lucent Technologies Bell Labs, VLSI Technology, Rockwell, Synopsys, Cadence, and Microsoft. Our research is sponsored by DARPA, Air Force Research Laboratory, NSF, Conexant Design Systems, Intel Corporation, Synopsys, and Avant! Corporation.

SRL Research Laboratory is located in Sieg Hall Room 112 and is directed by Prof. Richard Shi.
