Over 100 researchers, industry leaders, and Department of Defense (DOD) sponsors attended the Center for Circuit & System Solutions (C2S2) 2004 3rd Annual Review at Carnegie Mellon University on March 29-30. The program featured progress updates of C2S2's technical thrusts in affordable fabrics and flows, robust design, wireline, wireless, and interface systems, and emerging technologies. In addition, each project had at least one of the more than 55 posters in the two poster sessions.
C2S2 Director Rob Rutenbar and Center for Silicon System Implementation (CSSI) Director Larry Pileggi presented, along with circuit and system designers from Stanford, Berkley, and MIT. Students were invited to a networking event & reception sponsored by Microelectronics Advanced Research Corporation (MARCO). Dinner was arranged at the Buca di Beppo Restaurant in Pittsburgh's South Side.
C2S2 develops long-range design solutions for next-generation circuits, and systems built from circuits. The center is a consortium of research universities supported by the U.S. semiconductor industry MARCO Focus Center Research Program with funds from industry and the DOD.
