New generation CAD algorithms and tools are developed for easier, more efficient and accurate modeling/analysis/optimization processes. Research focuses on issues common to high-speed circuits and interconnects: signal integrity, modeling and simulation of high-speed interconnects, design tools for radio frequency and wireless applications, design tools for MEMS and opto-electronic applications, and mixed-domain simulation. Research also covers the optimum use of multiple CPU cores and multiple-thread algorithms for efficient computational effort.
