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 research interest is system level design and verification. Currently I am working on SystemC designs visualization for understanding of a given system. The problem is that the extraction of data from system designs written in SystemC is crucial. It brings this challenge that how can both, the structure and the behavior of a given SystemC design be retrieved without restricting the language means and/or modifying the existing infrastructures?

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 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.

As a goal of my research project OptiSecure, I would like to provide security for integrated circuits at the transistor level against non-invasive attacks, in particular optical-probing attacks. Currently, integrated circuits are vulnerable to the optical-probing attack, hence the intellectual properties and information can be hijacked using this technique. As a goal of my research, I would like to design secure circuits and architectures to combat such side-channel attacks. This is an important step to make circuits more secure toward this novel attack.

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.
