Embedded System Simulation Framework

Design and implementation of a hardware-software embedded system simulation framework. The framework integrates cycle-level instruction set simulators with transaction-level models, consisting of CPUs, GPUs, and interconnection network. An operating system runs on the CPU, and a GPU driver provides the functions required by CPU-GPU communication such as memory transfer and kernel execution.

Ultra-Reliable Flash Memory Systems for Embedded Applications

Research efforts focusing on characterizing and modeling failure modes of present generation (40-30 nm) and next-generation flash memory devices (sub 20 nm). Development of novel flash memory systems that manage and/or mitigate the impacts of these failure modes and continue to support storage demands of embedded applications despite the continually degrading endurance and reliability specifications of these flash memories.
