4 p.m. - 5 p.m. Location: Osborne Conference Room - ECSS 3.503
Please join us Wednesday, November 30 at 4:00pm in ECSS 3.503 Osborne Conference Room for the last this semester in a series of Computer Engineering Colloquia. Dr. Yiorgos Makris, Professor of Electrical Engineering/CE, will present a discussion of his research and how it relates to Computer Engineering. Q&A encouraged.
Dr. Makris will discuss how throughout the design, production, and functional lifetime of an integrated circuit, a wealth of data is collected for ensuring its robust and reliable operation. Ranging from design-time simulations to process characterization monitors on first silicon, and from high-volume specification tests to diagnostic measurements on chips returned from the field, the information inherent in this data is invaluable. In this talk, we will first discuss the use of data analytics for mining this information and identifying meaningful correlations. Examples based on actual industrial data will, then, be used to demonstrate the potential that data analytics holds in drastically improving a variety of semiconductor manufacturing tasks.
