I’m a Professor at UC Santa Cruz in the area of chip design and electronic design automation (EDA). I’m the lead PI of the VLSI Design and Automation Lab as well as a member of the Hardware Systems Collective.
I founded the VLSI Design Automation (VLSI-DA) lab at UC Santa Cruz in Fall 2006. The primary research focus is on physical design, circuits, and algorithms research. Topics that have been investigated include design for low-power circuits, variability and reliability, thermal-aware design, and error tolerant circuit design.
The VLSI-DA lab (and collaborators) presented two papers at ISCAS 2023 in Monterey, CA. These included: SRAM Design with OpenRAM in SkyWater 130nm by Jesse Cirimelli-Low, Muhammed Hadir Khan, Samuel Crow, Amogh Lonkar, Bugra Onal, Andrew Zonenberg, Matthew Guthaus OpenSpike: An OpenRAM SNN Accelerator by Farhad Modaresi, Matthew Guthaus, Jason Eshraghian Congrats to everyone on two great papers!
