November 13, 2014

ECE Ph.D. student Shupeng Sun has won Gold Medal for the ACM Student Research Competition at the International Conference on Computer-Aided Design, or ICCAD. Sponsored by Microsoft Research, the ACM Student Research Competition is organized by the ACM Special Interest Group on Design Automation (SIGDA). It is an internationally recognized venue enabling undergraduate and graduate students to share research results and gain recognition from the community. Shupeng Sun is advised by Associate Professor Xin Li.

Sun’s research work, titled “Fast Statistical Analysis of Rare Circuit Failure Events in High-Dimensional Variation Space,” develops an efficient methodology to estimate the extremely small failure rate for nanoscale integrated circuits. His research paper on this work was nominated for Best Paper Award at the International Conference on Computer-Aided Design this year. His research has been further adopted by the Virtuoso ADE product for a recent software release at Cadence.
