Integrated Computational Electronics Laboratory (ICE)

Is that layout on those tiles?

Welcome to the ICE Laboratory Site @ GT

The lab has two current focus directions:

  • Programmable and configurable, analog and digital, circuits, signal processing, algorithms, and systems
  • Neuromorphic Engineering
From these two areas of focus, we research signal processing, analog and digital integrated circuits and systems design, computational neuroscience, nonlinear dynamics, and CMOS device physics.

Lead Professor: Dr. Jennifer Hasler

Topically Organized Publications

Some background on my former graduate students

Some of Dr. Hasler's personal thoughts (under construction)

"if you build it, you understand it. And if you understand it, you can build it" -- Carver Mead

Programmability and Configurability

Physical and Neuromorphic Computation

Neuromorphic Systems: have systems based on neuroscience, to perform biological like tasks, including robotics, and thereby contribute to neuroscience understanding.
