Call for Designs ASP-DAC 2020

The University LSI Design Contest will be held as a unique program at ASP-DAC. The purpose of the contest is to encourage education and research on VLSI design at universities and other educational organizations by providing opportunities to present and discuss the innovative and state-of-the-art design. We solicit designs that fit in one or more of the following categories:

(1) Designed, and actually implemented on chips in universities or other educational organizations during the last two years;

(2) Designs that report actual measurements from implementations;

(3) Innovative design prototypes.

Interesting or excellent designs will be honored by providing the opportunities for presentation at a special session of the conference. The awards will be awarded for some of the outstanding designs presented at the conference.

Areas of Design

The scope of the contest covers circuit techniques for (1) Analog / RF / Mixed-Signal Circuits, (2) Digital Signal Processor, (3) Microprocessors, (4) Custom Application Specific Circuits / Memories, and methodologies for (a) Full-Custom / Cell-Based LSIs, (b) Gate Arrays, and (c) Field Programmable Devices .

Submission of Design Descriptions

A camera ready summary, including numbers, tables and references, is required to be prepared within 2 pages. It is strongly recommended to include the measured experimental results and micrographs of the chip in the summary. Please do not submit the same paper as a regular paper.

For detailed instructions for submission and specification of the paper format, please refer to Author's Guide.
