Abstract:
The emergence of multi-core processors and hardware accelerators (e.g. GPUs) is rapidly changing the landscape of computing. The affordability of such hardware platforms offers new computing opportunities while imposing challenges in the design and implementation of efficient parallel algorithms.

In this talk, I will highlight our recent work on exploiting these new parallel computing platforms for a number of computationally intensive VLSI CAD applications. The common theme of our work is to create a rich set of application-specific parallelisms with varying degrees of granularities so as to fully utilize present-day and future parallel computing hardware. In particular, I will show how to facilitate parallel circuit simulation with parallelizable numerical preconditioning techniques and other forms of intra and inter-algorithm parallelisms. Fast large power grid analysis on GPU-based SIMD processors, involving interplays between algorithm design, SIMD architecture consideration and code tuning, will be presented. Finally, a search-based parallel clock-mesh optimization approach will be highlighted.

Biography:
Peng Li received the Ph.D. degree in electrical and computer engineering from Carnegie Mellon University in 2003, M.E. and B.E degress from Xi'an Jiaotong University in 1997 and 1994, respectively.
