The Laboratory of Computer-aided Design Systems was created in 2015 and is a structural unit of the School of Computer Engineering. The laboratory is involved in conducting laboratory work in a wide range of undergraduate and graduate disciplines to provide students with practical skills in working with CAD systems and effectively assimilate knowledge in the field of computer-aided design of technical systems.
Main directions of research:
- development, debugging and verification of operating prototypes of digital systems and systems on a chip based on FPGAs;
- development of hardware implementations of neural networks (NeuroBIS) on FPGA;
- development of video and audio data processing systems, navigation systems, encryption and digital signature systems, as well as multicore systems based on hardware and soft processor cores (for example, MIPSfpga, RISC-V, NIOS II, etc.);
- development of prototypes and models, as well as programming of various robotic systems.
Starting October 26, 2020, lectures at all HSE University campuses will be held online. At the same time, the University’s buildings remain open to students and staff. Seminars will mostly remain offline. However, it is possible that some will also be transferred online.
On October 22, 2018, an open research seminar 'New Trends in Artificial Intelligence Chip Design in Silicon Valley' was held at the Laboratory of Automated Design Systems. Yuri Panchul, Senior Engineer with Wave Computing (Campbell, California) was the guest speaker.
