The VNNS group designs, builds, and tests innovative architectures that span a wide variety of VLSI applications in electrical and biological fields. Chips designed using digital, analog, and subthreshold methodologies are realized using CMOS, BiCMOS, and Bipolar technologies. Applications include biomimetic sound source localization, neural-net image processing, integrated photonic devices and parallel photonic testing, automatic partial-valued dynamic logic synthesis, single-chip large-molecule and DNA analyzers, and neural tissue interface chips as well as high-voltage Mems-mirror drivers. The group is equipped with a full suite of design tools and testing instrumentation for analog and digital systems.
