University LSI Design Contest

The University LSI Design Contest has been conceived as a unique program at ASP-DAC. The purpose of the contest is to encourage research in LSI design at universities and its realization on a chip by providing opportunities to present and discuss the innovative and state-of-the-art design. The scope of the contest covers circuit techniques for (1) Analog / RF / Mixed-Signal Circuits, (2) Digital Signal Processer, (3) Microprocessors, (4) Custom Application Specific Circuits / Memories, and methodologies for (a) Full-Custom / Cell-Based LSIs, (b) Gate Arrays, (c) Field Programmable Devices.

This year, the University LSI Design Contest Committee received 30 designs from five countries/areas, and selected 23 designs out of them. The selected designs will be disclosed in Session 1S at four-minute presentations, followed by interactive discussions in front of their posters with light meals. To outstanding two designs, The Best Design Award and The Special Feature Award will be presented in the opening session. We sincerely acknowledge the other contributions to the contest, too. It is our earnest belief to promote and enhance research and education in LSI design in academic organizations. Please come to the University LSI Design Contest and enjoy the stimulating discussions.
