Welcome to GTCAD Laboratory!
The GTCAD (Georgia Tech Computer-Aided Design) Laboratory, housed in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology, was established in Fall 2001. Our main research focus is on the architecture, circuit design, and physical design for 3D ICs and 3D System-in-Packages. We are currently one of the biggest academic research groups in the world working on EDA/physical design for 3D ICs. Our 3D research is funded by NSF, SEMATECH, US Department of Defense, SRC, Intel, Samsung, Qualcomm, and the Korean Government. We are also working with IBM, Mentor Graphics, and Cadence.
Our collaborators on Georgia Tech campus include
IFC, IPC, and
We also work closely with UTDA at UT Austin.
We have taped out the world's first 3D many-core processor from academia in March 2010. This work is presented at the IEEE International Solid-State Circuits Conference, 2012. More information is available here.
We helped build a commercial-grade RTL-to-GDSII tool flow and sign-off analysis tools for 3D ICs at these organizations:
- US DOD (2011)
- Intel Corporation (2012)
- Qualcomm Corporation (2012)
