U-M researchers will be tackling the end of Moore’s Law – and designing the computers of 2025 – at a new research center. The Center for Future Architectures Research (C-FAR) (www.futurearchs.org) aims to harness the power and boost the reliability of the tiniest transistors that will emerge over the next decade.
ABOUT THE PROFESSOR: C-FAR Director Todd Austin (http://web.eecs.umich.edu/~taustin/) is a professor of electrical engineering and computer science at the University of Michigan. His research includes the design and implementation of high-performance, power-efficient, and cost-effective computing systems. My research interests include computer architecture, reliable system design, hardware and software verification, and performance analysis tools and techniques.
Valeria Bertacco (http://web.eecs.umich.edu/~valeria/), co-investigator at C-FAR, is an associate professor in the department of electrical engineering and computer science at the University of Michigan. Her research includes the development of new algorithms for hybrid verification and post-silicon validation and debug.
