Semiconductor Research Corporation, the world’s leading university-research consortium for semiconductor technologies, has awarded $103 million to Georgia Institute of Technology during more than 30 years of supporting research at the university.

ECE Professor Madhavan Swaminathan has received the Distinguished Alumni Award from the National Institute of Technology Tiruchirappalli (NITT) for his pioneering work and leadership in electronic packaging at Georgia Tech and IBM over the last 25 ye

ECE Professor Madhavan Swaminathan received the 2014 IEEE Components, Packaging, and Manufacturing Technology Society (CPMT) Outstanding Sustained Technical Contribution Award on May 29 at the IEEE Electronic Components Technology Conference.

The use of AI in EDA is a hot topic due to significant progress with applying machine learning to the issues of chip design.

ECE Professor Madhavan Swaminathan has been chosen for a 2015 Best Paper Award from the IEEE Transactions on Components, Packaging, and Manufacturing Technology.

“This paper presents the first reported integrated circuit which implements reinforcement learning at less than a milli-Watt. This can enable a wide variety of applications in autonomous and bio-mimetic systems.”

Georgia Tech’s Center for Co-design of Chip, Package System (C3PS) led by Profs. A. Raychowdhury and M. Swaminathan headed-up Georgia Tech’s winning proposal that resulted in a 5 year, $3.5M award that will fund up to 10 GRA positions.

Following an international search, Madhavan Swaminathan has been appointed as the new director of Georgia Tech’s 3D Systems Packaging Research Center (PRC).
