讲座信息：New horizons for electronic systems: Devices, design methods and applications
时 间: 8月31日上午10:00
地 点: 张江微电子楼369室
报告人: Prof. Giovanni De Micheli (IEEE CEDA Distinguish Lecturer)
Three new game changers enable the design of emerging electronic systems: the use of new devices and materials, the combined integration of circuits and sensors and the application of new design methods and tools that support the correct composition of complex systems from regular components. These ingredients are crucial to design electronic systems in various key areas, such as precision medicine, the Internet of Things, and environmental monitoring/protection.
I will first present the landscape of emerging areas, such as cyber medical systems. Then I will describe enhanced-functionality devices exploiting new materials and geometries, their application into circuits that provide direct data acquisition from the environment by fusing sensors and circuits, as well as new design methods and tools for the creation of complex systems. Finally, I will focus on new methods for synthesis of integrated circuits based on majority algebra and I will conclude by presenting results from experimental design tools.
Giovanni De Micheli is Professor and Director of the Institute of Electrical Engineering and of the Integrated Systems Centre at EPF Lausanne, Switzerland. He is program leader of the Nano-Tera.ch program. Previously, he was Professor of Electrical Engineering at Stanford University. He holds a Nuclear Engineer degree (Politecnico di Milano, 1979), a M.S. and a Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (University of California at Berkeley, 1980 and 1983).
Prof. De Micheli is a Fellow of ACM and IEEE, a member of the Academia Europaea and an International Honorary member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. His research interests include several aspects of design technologies for integrated circuits and systems, such as synthesis for emerging technologies, networks on chips and 3D integration. He is also interested in heterogeneous platform design including electrical components and biosensors, as well as in data processing of biomedical information. He is author of: Synthesis and Optimization of Digital Circuits, McGraw-Hill, 1994, co-author and/or co-editor of eight other books and of over 800 technical articles. His citation h-index is 93 according to Google Scholar. He is member of the Scientific Advisory Board of IMEC (Leuven, B), CfAED (Dresden, D) and STMicroelectronics.
Prof. De Micheli is the recipient of the 2016 IEEE/CS Harry Goode award for seminal contributions to design and design tools of Networks on Chips, the 2016 EDAA Lifetime Achievement Award, the 2012 IEEE/CAS Mac Van Valkenburg award for contributions to theory, practice and experimentation in design methods and tools and the 2003 IEEE Emanuel Piore Award for contributions to computer-aided synthesis of digital systems. He received also the Golden Jubilee Medal for outstanding contributions to the IEEE CAS Society in 2000, the D. Pederson Award for the best paper on the IEEE Transactions on CAD/ICAS in 1987 and 2018, and several Best Paper Awards, including DAC (1983 and 1993), DATE (2005), Nanoarch (2010 and 2012) and Mobihealth(2016).
He has been serving IEEE in several capacities, namely: Division 1 Director (2008-9), co-founder and President Elect of the IEEE Council on EDA (2005-7), President of the IEEE CAS Society (2003), Editor in Chief of the IEEE Transactions on CAD/ICAS (1997-2001). He has been Chair of several conferences, including Memocode (2014) DATE (2010), pHealth (2006), VLSI SOC (2006), DAC (2000) and ICCD (1989).
