Configurable Computing Lab

Configurable Computing Lab Image

Configurable computing machines provide the computational performance benefits of application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs), yet retain the flexibility and rapid reconfigurability of general purpose microprocessors. Applications include e-textiles, 1-D and 2-D signal processing, image processing, simulation acceleration, and scientific computing.

e-Textile Laboratory

e-Textile Image

Researchers are involved with developing theory and technology for wearable computers and large-scale sensor networks using fabrics that have electronics and interconnections woven into them.

Systems Software Research Group

The research group works to develop software systems that are scalable, efficient, and reliable. Research areas include operating systems, distributed systems, real-time systems, virtualization, language run-times, compilers, middleware, and networks.
