JUMP Center Panel Featured at DAC 2019

JUMP panelists at DAC 2019

"Electronics Innovation’s Great Leap Forward: An overview of the JUMP program" was one of the panels featured at the 2019 Design Automation Conference (DAC 2019), held in Las Vegas June 2-6. The panel, moderated by DARPA's Linton Salmon, discussed ADA and the other JUMP centers. ADA Director Valeria Bertacco was one of the featured faculty panelists.

Reimagining How Computers Are Designed

As the computing industry struggles to maintain its historically rapid pace of innovation, the ADA Center, based at the University of Michigan, aims to streamline and democratize the design and manufacturing of next-generation computing systems.

The Center for Applications Driving Architectures, or ADA, is developing a transformative, "plug-and-play" ecosystem to encourage a flood of fresh ideas in computing frontiers such as autonomous control, robotics and machine-learning.

Today, analysts worry that the industry is stagnating, caught between physical limits to the size of silicon transistors and the skyrocketing costs and complexity of system design.

"The electronic industry is facing many challenges going forward, and we stand a much better chance of solving these problems if we can make hardware design more accessible to a large pool of talent," said Valeria Bertacco, an Arthur F. Thurnau professor of computer science and engineering at U-M and director of the ADA Center. "We want to make it possible for anyone with motivation and a good idea to build novel high-performance computing systems."

The center is a five-year project that includes researchers from several leading universities.
