Muhannad Bakir is a recipient of the 2013 Intel Early Career Faculty Honor Program Award. Dr. Bakir was among the 15 awardees recognized at the Intel University Collaboration Symposium, which was held June 25-26 in San Francisco.
Dr. Bakir was chosen for this award based on his proposed project with Intel entitled “Design and Experimental Evaluation of Novel Architecture-Driven Interconnect Technologies for On-Chip, Off-Chip, and Monolithic 3D Integrated Circuits.” In this work, Dr. Bakir's research group will explore limits and opportunities of architecture-driven novel interconnect technologies at the on- and off-chip levels for significantly improved IC performance per unit energy over the current state-of-the-art. While total available power is fixed for virtually all electronic systems and platforms, the energy cost of data movement within a chip and across a system accounts for a large fraction of the total energy and is projected to increase in the future. With this key support from Intel, Dr. Bakir and his group will address this disparity in performance and energy dissipation of interconnects (data movement) relative to computation.
A Georgia Tech School of Electrical and Computer Engineering faculty member since 2010, Dr. Bakir holds the ON Semiconductor Junior Professorship. He leads the 3D Integrated Systems Group, which explores the design, fabrication, and characterization of 3D nanoelectronic systems and advanced interconnect networks.
