    Through principled engineering methods, synthetic biology aims to build specialized biological components that can be modularly composed to create complex systems. This article outlines bio-design automation using two complementary design approaches, bottom-up modular construction from biological primitives and pathway-based approaches. The article also highlights future challenges for both. View full abstract»

    Molecular reactions are a common occurrence in biological systems. These reactions are tremendously varied and can be extraordinarily complex. This article, however, shows how abstracting these reactions appropriately provide a formalism to describe computation that is familiar to electrical engineers and computer scientists.

    The simulation of biological systems prior to their physical implementation can save time, money, and potentially provide insights into alternate designs. This paper presents a simulation environment which allows for a visual design process ultimately leading to a formal model which can be efficiently simulated. View full abstract»

    In this review, we illustrate EDA's potential for high-impact contributions in biodesign using a case study. Fast integral-equation solvers are used widely to analyze electromagnetic fields in circuits and packaging and can be leveraged to understand and design the electrostatic interactions between biological molecules. Fast simulations of Maxwell's equations enable accurate prediction of system ... View full abstract»

    Before the 1970s, design automation was used more intensely in mechanical and civil engineering. In the 1970s, it became clear that the design of electrical and electronic circuits could be greatly aided by software tools. These tools enabled the creation of a novel electronic design automation (EDA) industry that claimed its space in the software industry. Today there is not a single IC company t...

    While new EDA tools and proven IP cores result in considerable improvement in IC design productivity, but they are not sufficient for today's increasing IC complexity. Understanding the impact of organizational dynamics and investing in advanced program management solutions are necessary, which is exactly the topic that this paper addresses. An earlier version of this paper was presented in the Ma... View full abstract»

    Clifford (geometric) algebra is a natural and intuitive way to model geometric objects and their transformations. It has important applications in a variety of fields, including robotics, machine vision and computer graphics, where it has gained a growing interest. This paper presents the design space exploration of parallel embedded architectures that natively support Clifford algebra with differ... View full abstract»

    The authors propose a low-cost solution for hardware IP protection during evaluation, by embedding a hardware Trojan inside an IP in the form of a finite state machine. The Trojan disrupts the normal functional behavior of the IP on occurrence of a sequence of rare events, thereby effectively putting an expiry date on the usage of the IP. View full abstract»

    Although communication fabrics at the microarchitectural level are mainly composed of standard primitives such as queues and arbiters, to get an executable model one has to connect these primitives with glue logic to complete the description. In this paper we identify a richer set of microarchitectural primitives that allows us to describe complete systems by composition alone. This enables us to ... View full abstract»
