The objective of the WISCAD lab is to research and develop computer-aided design tools for Integrated Circuits (ICs). Specifically, our goal is to address the challenges for future IC generations such as support for advanced manufacturing techniques, emerging devices, new packaging technologies, secure design to protect the designer's Intellectual Property, develop optimization strategies to support parallel and distributed running of CAD tools, and develop CAD tools to improve the validation and debug of ICs post-fabrication. We are also interested in (non-Electronic) Design Automation for other real-world problem instances.

Research in Electronic Design Automation area typically requires knowledge of nano-scale IC design challenges, of various algorithmic and optimization techniques, and efficient software programming. The problems can lie anywhere within the two extremes of purely CS to purely EE.
