UC Irvine computer science professor Nikil Dutt (pictured) and doctoral student Sudeep Pasricha have co-authored a book titled On-Chip Communication Architectures: System on Chip Interconnect. The work, a detailed reference on concepts, research and trends in on-chip communication architecture design, provides readers with a comprehensive survey of all current standards for on-chip communication architectures – information unavailable anywhere else. Dutt’s research involves compilers, architectures and computer-aided design, with a specific focus on the exploration, evaluation and design of domain-specific embedded systems that span research issues in hardware, software, networked and ubiquitous systems.
