Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham is a multi-campus, multi-disciplinary research university that is accredited 'A' by NAAC and is ranked as one of the best research universities in India. The university is spread across five campuses in three states of India - Kerala, Tamil Nadu and Karnataka, with the University headquarters at Ettimadai, Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu.
The Department of Computer Science & Engineering at Amrita School of Engineering, Bengaluru campus is looking for bright and motivated students with an M.Tech. (CSE or ECE) and a strong interest in Computer architecture and FPGA/VLSI design. The project titled "Just-in-time Customisation: Research Platform for Accelerating Algorithms to Systems" will be carried out under the guidance of Dr. Madhura Purnaprajna, Associate Professor, Department of Computer Science & Engineering, Amrita School of Engineering, Bengaluru.
ABOUT PROJECT: Today's embedded computing world has been overloaded with applications with high computational demands, in addition to being constrained by cost, footprint and battery life. Each new application is associated with custom compute requirements that need to be met with a fast time-to-market. However, designing a custom micro-architecture for every new application is expensive and time consuming. In addition, the competition-driven industry calls techniques that make systems deployable with a short concept-to-realisation time. Extracting performance from traditional sequential computing methods has reached its limits. The breakdown in the growth of performance-per-watt complemented with ever increasing transistor densities, challenges the conventional o.-the-shelf processing paradigms for the new generation embedded computing applications.
In particular, the focus of this research is to:
FUNDING AGENCY: This project is funded by Science and Engineering Research Board, Government of India.
ELIGIBILITY: This is a DST funded project, hence all pre-requisite eligibility criteria as per DST guidelines have to be met. This implies all applicants should have a minimum of Masters' level degree (M.Tech/ M.S., similar)
DURATION: Three years
Candidates fulfilling the above conditions are invited to apply for the post.
