Welcome to ICDL
Integrated Circuits and Devices Laboratory (ICDL) is located in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at Purdue University.
In ICDL, we explore novel application driven device designs and technology-aware circuit solutions based on emerging technologies to address the challenges of next-generation computing and data storage. A key component of our research is the co-design between different levels of abstraction to utilize the unique device-circuit interactions for translating the intriguing properties of the emerging technologies to novel circuit functionalities.
Our research spans the exploration of several different emerging technologies based on ferroelectrics, phase transition materials, 2D transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs), spintronics etc. and their applications in low power Boolean logic and SRAMs, non-volatile memories and logic, in-memory computing, non-Boolean associative computing and neuromorphic computing. We also develop physics-based and circuit-compatible models for emerging devices to facilitate the device-circuit co-design and to obtain insights into the device operation and device-circuit interactions. Our research has been funded by NSF, DARPA, SRC, NIST and Applied Materials.
