EDA - Electronic Design Automation

The EDA (Electronic Design Automation) Group at the Department of Control and Computer Engineering of Politecnico di Torino consists of five faculty, seven Post Docs, four PhD students and several research assistants. The research conducted by the group spans three main activities: i) Computer-aided design of digital electronic circuits and systems, with particular emphasis on methodologies, algorithms and tools for power estimation and optimization of systems described at various levels of the design hierarchy; ii) Bioinformatics, with special emphasis on algorithms and tools for next generation sequencing (NGS), biomedical image processing and molecular dynamics; iii) Smart devices and smart cities, focusing on wireless sensor networks for energy monitoring and control applications, service-oriented software infrastructure for network interoperability, Augmented reality applications for interactive visualization of energy information. The group's activities benefit from tight interactions with faculty from other engineering disciplines and with industry experts.
