Center of Excellence in FPGAs/ASIC Research(CEFAR) has been established at SEECS.

 

Research Groups working in CEFAR:
1. USB 3.0
2. SDR
3. DAAC

CEFAR NUST-SEECS

Welcome to Center of Excellence in FPGA and ASIC Research
(CEFAR)

The group for Research in Reconfigurable Architectures for Security in Communication (GRASiC) mainly focus on designing and developing optimized coprocessors for diverse security applications in FPGAs that ranges from secure telephone to secure satellite communication. The group also investigates optimal techniques for the security in constrained environments (e.g. Smart cards, RFIDs, etc.). The group also investigates application specific architectures based on FPGAs (e.g. Network on FPGAs).

Objectives

To sit at the critical interface between the academic and commercial engineering worlds
To produce highly skilled design engineers and researchers to meet the needs of the rapidly changing global semiconductor industry.

The research scope includes FPGAs in Particular, and its applications from the domain of Cryptographic Hardware, Video and Image Processing, DSP and Networks-on-Chip in General. Currently, two major research groups are conducting research in areas of ASIC/FPGA designs and cryptographic hardware.
