Tools and methodologies for post-silicon technologies
As we improve our understanding of new technologies and materials, we see how new application domains open up. We also get a better grasp of the potential benefit that these technologies can bring for already established application domains. To accelerate progress in these domains, programming and design tools are needed, which is the matter of this research line at the CC chair. For example, we have an ongoing research collaboration for designing Labs-on-Chips (LoCs), together with the Chair of Highly-Parallel VLSI-Systems and Neuro-Microelectronics, the Chair of Polymeric Microsystems and the research group of Chemical Information Processing led by Martin Elstner. We are looking for a Domain Specific Language (DSL) and tool flow that would ease the design and development of micro-fluidic chips.
