Integrated Circuit and System Design

The Department for Integrated Circuit and System Design covers the development of design methods for various application areas. A particular focus of our work is on the design, verification, and test of circuits and systems for conventional as well as alternative and post-CMOS computing technologies. Besides that, we have proven to successfully apply the methods developed by us in complementary research areas (learn more about our research on this page). For students, we offer lectures for graduate and undergraduate students and supervise Bachelor as well as Master theses. We believe in research-oriented learning.


  • Jan 22, 2019: Alwin Zulehner presented his work on “Computer Aided Design for Quantum Computing” at the ASP-DAC Student Research Forum (see this page for more details on the topic). For his contribution, he got awarded with a Student Research Award (also see this news in German).
  • Jan 20, 2019: Our work on “Determining Application-specific Knowledge for Improving Robustness of Sequential Circuits” has been published in the IEEE Trans. on VLSI Systems.
  • Jan 19, 2019: We are covered in an article by OÖN about quantum computing (in German).

  • Jan 08, 2019: Our work on “Improved Look-ahead Approaches for Nearest Neighbor Synthesis of 1D Quantum Circuits” is presented at the IEEE Computer Society Annual Symposium on VLSI (ISVLSI).
