Nanoelectronic Devices and Integrated Circuits (NorDIC) Lab is located in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. The NorDIC lab focuses on application-driven novel device designs and technology-aware circuit solutions for emerging nanoelectronics. Our research interests include exploration of ingenious device/circuit co-design techniques to overcome the prevailing/ensuing challenges, that the electronic industry and associated scientific community are experiencing/foreseeing. Due to the immense design complexity of the ‘Hyper-Scaling’ era, secluded device/circuit/architecture-centric design often becomes impossible. We work across multiple layers of design abstractions (Device-Circuit-Architecture) to solve daunting technological challenges and to best utilize the enormous possibilities offered by cutting-edge technologies.
