Résumé: The recent trend in heterogeneous system design and emerging 3-D chips has presented new opportunities and challenges, which necessitates the tailoring of algorithms to different platforms. This lecture will begin with observations on conflicting behavior of design constraints and the current trend in microelectronics. It will highlight the impact of interconnect-delay in nanostructure system design and the scope of 3-D solutions. It will also show the impact of increasing leakage current and the need of a decision of right operating voltage to minimize the energy consumption. It will briefly discuss various attributes of algorithm, e.g., sequential/parallel, localized/ distributed, compute/communication-bound, locally/globally-recursive or non-recursive, etc., and the algorithm design for 3-D architectures with different processing units in different layers, which might be optimized in terms of memory, register files, I/O, interconnects, control, and arithmetic circuits. Co-design will be viewed as a multidimensional optimization problem for a given specification of throughput, latency, chip area and energy-consumption for the desired implementation solution.

Note biographique: Dr. Pramod Kumar Meher received the B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in Physics from Sambalpur University, Sambalpur, India, in 1976 and 1978, respectively. He was awarded with the Ph.D. degree by the same university in 1996 for his work on VLSI signal processing. He has a wide scientific and technical background covering Physics, Electronics, and Computer Engineering. Currently, he is working as a Senior Scientist with the Institute for Infocomm Research, Singapore. Prior to this assignment he was a visiting faculty with the School of Computer Engineering, Singapore. His research interest includes design of dedicated and reconfigurable architectures for computation-intensive algorithms pertaining to signal processing, image processing, conference proceedings. Besides communication, bio-informatics, and intelligent computing. He has published two book chapters and nearly 150 technical papers in various reputed journals and conference proceedings. Currently, he is serving as member of editorial board of IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems-II: Express Briefs, IEEE Transactions on Very Large Scale Integration (VLSI) Systems, and Journal of Circuits, Systems, and Signal Processing as associate editor. He was the recipient of the Samanta Chandrasekhar Award for excellence in research in engineering and technology for the year 1999.
number of IEEE Control Systems Society activities such as associate editorships, conference chairmanships, and prize paper committees. He has also served as a consultant for a number of companies and is the author of the textbook New Tools for Robustness of Linear Systems, Macmillan, 1994. Over the last two years his research has concentrated on the modeling and trading of markets for stocks and options.
