Prof. Steve Wilton, together with recently graduated PhD student Eddie Huang and undergraduate student Al-Shahna Jamal, received the Best Paper Award at the International Conference on Field-Programmable Technology for their submission titled, Maximum Flow Algorithms for Maximum Observability During FPGA Debug. Prof. Wilton and his team work in the System-on-Chip Laboratory at ECE.
The paper describes techniques to improve the turn-around time between an initial prototype and a working integrated circuit. This contributes to a new network construction that allows users to observe what is going on inside an integrated circuit.
The International Conference on Field- Programmable Technology (ICFPT) is the premier conference in the Asia-Pacific region on field-programmable technologies including reconfigurable computing devices and systems containing such components.
