    X. Guo and Mircea R. Stan publish a new book titled, " Circadian Rhythms for Future Resilient Electronic Systems: Accelerated Active Self-Healing for Integrated Circuits". The book covers topics on methods to address wearout/aging degradation's in electronic chips and systems, caused by several physical mechanisms at the device level.  The authors introduce a novel technique called accelerated active self-healing, which fixes wearout issues by enabling accelerated recovery.  Coverage includes recovery theory, experimental results, implementations and applications, across multiple nodes ranging from planar, FD-SOI to FinFET, based on both foundries provided models and predictive models.  


    Patricia Gonzalez-Guerrero and Xinfei Guo won “Best Paper Award” at LASCAS’19

    June 25, 2019

    Their paper titled, “ASC-FFT: Area-Efficient Low-Latency FFT Design Based on Asynchronous Stochastic Computing”, won the best paper award at Latin American Symposium on Circuits and Systems (LASCAS). The paper presents a novel idea for a low-error asynchronous adder that enables the implementation of more complex computation logic such as, asynchronous stochastic Fast Fourier Transform (ASC-FFT).
