The asynchronous VLSI and architecture group
is part of the Computer
Systems Laboratory at the School of Electrical and Computer
Our group uses formal synthesis methods for the design of provably
correct, highly concurrent, reliable, and robust asynchronous systems.
Our group spans two locations: Cornell's main campus in Ithaca, NY and
Cornell's new Tech campus in New York City. Typically students spend their first year at the Ithaca campus, and then move to NYC for the rest of their Ph.D.
The asynchronous VLSI and architecture group is primarily supported by
research grants from the US government. Government sponsors include
the National Science Foundation,
the Defense and Advanced Research Projects
Agency, Air Force Research Labs,
and the Office of Naval Research.
The research directions of the group are summarized in the following brochure.
