Projects

On this page, you can find a few of the course projects that I've done during my B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees. They are in chronological order. wherever possible, I have provided some related materials for each project. Some of the documents are in Persian. Please let me know if you are interested in any of them and I will provide you with more details.

Bio-Inspired Computing:

A survey on Self-Reproduction, available here.

Asynchronous System Design:

History-Based Dynamic Voltage Scaling for Globally Asynchronous Locally Synchronous (GALS) Network On Chip (NoC):

A key concern in modern embedded systems is power consumption. Increasing demands for longer battery life and heating issues associated with power have led researchers to develop new ways to reduce power and energy consumption in embedded systems. Dynamic voltage and frequency scaling techniques are used to dynamically alter the voltage and frequency levels of the circuit to the lowest possible level to still yield high performance. In this research, we develop History-Base Dynamic Voltage Scaling (DVS) scheme for a GALS NOC in 45nm technology. This DVS architecture exploits the link utilization and adjusts the router voltages among few number of voltage modes.
