Dr. Eric J. Wyers

| Biography

I have developed my research interests in embedded systems from my experiences as an integrated circuit designer, as a graduate student, and as a postdoctoral research scholar. Specifically, my research focuses on solving the challenging implementation problems associated with high-performance mixed-signal embedded system platforms and systems-on-a-chip (SoCs), and consists of three main components: i) real-time embedded systems-based performance optimization of mixed-signal SoCs, ii) embedded algorithms and methodologies for block- and system-level performance tuning, discrete resource allocation, calibration, and control applications, and iii) design automation, optimization, and verification for mixed-signal embedded system platforms.
