Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Nanotechnology Research
The primary aim of the laboratory is to develop techniques at the device/circuit/algorithm/architecture level suitable for low-power and high-performance system design. The group explores different aspects of device /circuit modeling, exploratory Silicon and non-Silicon devices, spintronics, neuromorphic computing and learning algorithms, stochastic computing. The different research groups of the laboratory are – Neuromorphic computing enabled by spin devices, Spin memories, Boolean and Non-Boolean computing with Spin devices, Stochastic computing, Technology/Circuit Co-Design, Device/Circuit Modeling.
The Nanoelectronics Research Laboratory was established around 18 years ago in Department of Electrical Engineering, Purdue University. Currently it consists of 26 research staffs including one post-doctoral research assistant. The group is directed by Prof. Kaushik Roy. Major sponsors of the group over the years include Intel, IBM, SRC, NSF, DARPA, Rockwell, StarNet, IBM, HP, ATT/Lucent, Qualcomm, Nano Research Initiative. The laboratory has produced 70 PhD and 27 MS alumni to date.
