Cadence Tools in Research
Cadence software is used by EECS students and faculty
at Harvard to build custom RF, analog, digital, and mixed-signal
IC’s. Some projects currently being prepared for tapeout or awaiting silicon:
Circuitry of the “brain” and power electronics of a flapping-wing micro air vehicle (robotic bee)
- Integrated power management and clock generation in a self-timed processor
- SoC for flight control and visual navigation, combining an ARM Cortex M0 core with memory and a serial interface
- On-chip switching regulators for fast, per-core DVFS
Communication between cores in separate voltage domains under flexible voltage stacking
Deep Neural Network accelerator design
Efficient power delivery via voltage stacking and on-chip symmetric ladder
switched-capacitor regulator for current balancing
Low-voltage memory designs for embedded systems application
Development of a CMOS mixed-signal chip to interface with biological neurons,
to facilitate research on neuronal activity by enabling direct recording and stimulation of neurons in live tissue.
