Speaker:     Prof. Haigang Yang. CAS

Time:          10:00—11:30, May 11

Location:    Room 1A-200, SIST Building


Over the last three decades, FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) has evolved as a platform device technology, finding its way to a wide range of applications notably in communication, internet, industrial, security, avionics, aerospace, military, medical, consumer, automotive, etc. Characterized with high parallelism in data processing, FPGA is also becoming an enabling device for system implementations of HPC (High Performance Computing), machine learning, neural network, etc. The talk will first give a brief introduction to the reconfigurable computing architectures of FPGA, along with an analysis on FPGA’s strong potentials in high performance and energy efficient computing. The talk will then move on to discuss some of the challenges in design of advanced FPGAs, including SEU (Single Event Upset) harden FPGA design, DNN (Deep Neural Network) oriented FPGA design, and 3D-FPGA design.


 Hai-Gang Yang received the B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in Physics and Electronics Engineering respectively from Fudan University, Shanghai, China, in 1983 and 1986, respectively, and the Ph.D. degree in microelectronics from the University of Cambridge, Cambridge, UK, in 1991. He held several senior technical positions with Wolfson Microelectronics, Edinburgh, UK, LSI Logic Europe, Bracknell, UK, Hitachi Microsystems Europe, Maidenhead, UK and Altera European Technology Centre, High Wycombe, UK. He is currently a Professor and the Director of the System on Programmable Chip Research Department with the Institute of Electronics, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing, China. His research interests include analog and mixed signal integrated circuit design, very large scale integration design, programmable array computing microchip technology, and high reliability FPGA device engineering. Prof Yang also serves as Secretary-General of Chinese Institute of Electronics Circuits and System Society. Prof Yang authored and co-authored over 200 research papers in internationally renowned journals and conference publications including IEEE Journal of Solid State Circuits, IEEE Sensors Journal, IEEE Transactions on Very Large Scale Integration (VLSI) Systems, IEEE Transactions on Nuclear Science, IEEE Transactions on Computer-Aided Design of Integrated Circuits and Systems, Analog Integrated Circuits and Signal Processing, Electronics Letters, etc. He also holds 1 US Patent and 58 China Patents with 42 China Patents pending.
