SoC Laboratory

ENICS Lab was established to give an answer to the multiple challenges of System on a Chip design. For the first time Israel has a scaled SoC design, implementation and measurement laboratory that combines academy staff with actual industry requirements. It is well known that SoC complexity is exponentially growing due to multi-processor and multi-application systems. This complexity brings challenges in design, integration, verification and implementation. In addition, when time to market is a significant factor, an optimized generic flow is necessary.

Dr. Shlomo Greenberg

The research team of the Ben Gurion University, includes Dr. Shlomo Greenberg from the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department and Dr. Yehuda Ben-Shimol from the Communication Systems Engineering Department as well as 7 students (1 PhD students, 1 MSc students, and five 4’th year under graduate students) doing their thesis and final projects in the area of parallel processing and high performance VLSI using multi core and vector processing SoC platforms. The proposed research aimed at exploring innovative and high performance power-efficient architectures optimized for specific real time DSP applications using parallel processing and multi-threading. The research will focus on multi- core and vector processing architectures, aiming at exposing both efficient dynamic branch prediction algorithms and new pipeline architectures in multi-core SoC. Additionally, the research will also focus on developing efficient DSP based algorithms and parallel implementation of such algorithms for optimal speed up.
