Welcome to VLSI Lab at Columbia University. We work on novel design techniques and methodologies for better energy efficiency, performance and robustness of highly integrated circuits and systems. We build and charaterize hardware, often in the form of integrated circuits, like the one of the Intel microprocessors in the picture (or smaller). Please visit our research page and publication list to get a sense of research that we are involved with. We are also collaborating with faculty members in Columbia Integrated Systems Lab, Computer Engineering Program and EE department.
