Stuff you can Get from Me
Most of my recent
work is top secret (shh...), but here are some work I did in grad school
which may be of passing interest.
idea was to use MCMs to make Really Big FPGAs. Check out the UCSC
FPMCM Project Home Page for more details on my FPMCM research.
idea here was to design a router that could automatically route packages
where the netlist was not well defined. The package routing research was
made part of SURF ,
UCSC's rubberband routing system for multi-chip modules. Marco Yu has far
surpassed my efforts in this field.

for the complete list)
