We are making chips that change the world!

Currently, we are focusing on the design of domain-specific SoC for various applications such as intelligent computing devices, biomedical systems, and communication systems. In detail, computer architecture, SoC design, signal processing algorithm with optimized VLSI implementation are our main research topics.
