Falsafi and Mowry Win 2003 IBM Faculty Partnership Awards

 

June 13, 2003

ECE Associate Professor Babak Falsafi has been awarded a 2003 IBM Faculty Partnership Award by the Austin Center for Advanced Studies.

Falsafis research focuses on a brand new vision for processor designs in future CMOS technologies, in which the processor exploits repetitive instruction execution and extracts program dataflow information to eliminate unnecessary switching in transistors and minimize power.

Todd Mowry, Associate Professor of CS and ECE, also received the honor for his project titled, Exploiting Thread-Level Speculation to Accelerate Database Performance on Chip Multiprocessors.
