His current research area is involved with the design of next generation System-on-Chip (SoC) based on the notion of Network-on-Chip (NoC) architecture for connecting 100's of cores on the same die. He has worked on low power routers, wired and wireless on-chip communication, mapping and scheduling algorithms, as well as the fault-tolerance aspects of the NoC architectures.
An extension of his work is to apply the NoC architectural concept for the design of 3D ICs where the communication among cores are not limited to the 2D substrate, and Through-Silicon Via (TSV) as well as wireless communication are utilized for a flexible and scalable design.
