Head of the Group
Rolf Drechsler, Head of the group

The Group of Computer Architecture offer lectures in the area of computer aided design of circuits and systems for students on bachelor- and master-level. Beside the lectures for graduate and undergraduate students, we run student team projects to enforce research oriented learning. In research the groups are successful in Computer Aided Design (CAD) of circuits and systems covering synthesis, verification, test and reliability.

My field of research is low power Design For Test (DFT) for integrated circuits. The identification of risky and vulnerable test patterns is very important for a reliable post-production test. Therefore, my work focuses on the development of a test pattern analysis methodology within this field.

I work in the domain of Educational Psychology and investigate topics of learning and instruction. My present work focuses on supporting learners to solve mathematical problems which are presented within a real context. For this purpose, methods are developed and their effectiveness is tested experimentally. Various methods are considered, ranging from fostering reading competencies to discussing common errors.

My research interest is formal verification of circuits. The goal of formal verification is to prove the correctness of circuits (in contrast to simulation based approaches whose limitations were highlighted e.g. by the Pentium Bug).
Especially, I examine how information of high-level descriptions can be used effectively in the formal verification process. Thereby the system description language SystemC plays an important role.

I am interested in the verification of systems on high levels of abstraction. My current research focus is on fully automatic formal methods for property checking as well as bug hunting in SystemC (TLM) models. The inherent concurrency of the models in combination with the large input space, requires sophisticated proof techniques.

My activity is focused on the development of algorithms for high-quality test set generation for digital circuits. An important aspect of my work lies in the integration and profitable use of structural knowledge about the design under test within formal proof techniques, which are applied by the test computation process.

My research focuses on power aware design, especially at the system level. In the nearby future, embedded designs will require to be thought of as the result of both functionality and power requirements and will require a unified workflow. The idea is to use modern techniques to aid the development of this integrated workflow for different application scenarios.

My field of research is formal verification and debugging of gate-level arithmetic circuits specially large and complex multipliers and dividers. These circuits play an important role in different applications, and they usually consist of millions of gates. The idea is to take advantage of fast and scalable methods (e.g. computer algebra) to verify circuits, localize the faults, and make the buggy parts correct.

I am interested in systems temporal behaviour modeling and verification. The problem I am currently addressing is to formally verify that a system fulfills its Real-Time specifications. As software nowadays is held responsible for the most critical bugs in embedded systems, I am investigating how to prove meeting certain software Real-Time execution specifications.

I am working in the area of solving optimization problems using probabilistic techniques such as evolutionary algorithms (EAs). In particular, I am aiming for applying these concepts in order to solve multi-objective optimization (MOO) problems which frequently occur in electronic design automation. My vision is to integrate them in existing design flows in a more comprehensive fashion.

My main research focus is on reversible logic which shows promising applications e.g. in the area of low-power design and quantum computation. However, till today no design flow for reversible logic exists - this must be changed. In particular, approaches for synthesis, verification, and debugging need improvements. Besides that, I am trying to improve the existing SAT- and SMT-solvers and their application in formal hardware verification.
