Research Interests:

         Software Defined Radio: reconfigurable communication baseband for multiple standards.
         Low power ASIC design: low static power, low toggle ASIC design, especially for communication MAC/PHY layer circuits.
         High performance processor design for mobile application: Low power consumption, high performace processor with special instructions and novel processor interfaces for communication baseband.
         Hybird FPGA core into ASICs: hybird flexible size FPGA core into ASICs, targeting to a general partial reconfigurable methodology with high performance from ASIC.
