UCLA Center for Heterogeneous Integration and Performance Scaling

2020 Edition. In Research Institute of the Year

UCLA CHIPS is an interdisciplinary university-led consortium composed of industrial partners and consortia, universities and government agencies to holistically address a fundamental re-thinking of IC and system design and manufacture. Starting from the application space, the design environment, and the integration scheme, appropriate new materials and components are being developed. These include energy sources, memory, sensors, passives, electromechanical and medical devices – all of which need to be integrated into these new platforms and application space.

UCLA CHIPS has pioneered the dielet revolution and develops new methodologies and infrastructure for integrating dielets (sometimes also called chiplets) at pitches comparable to on-chip wiring levels, enabling both latencies, bandwidth and energy per bit comparable to monolithic integration, but at the board level.
