The System Power Optimization and Regulation Technology (SPORT) Lab focuses on research, development, and educational efforts on power-awareness in VLSI circuits and systems.

Of particular interest are low-power electronics including low power devices, circuits, and architectures, computer-aided design methodologies and techniques for power-efficient realization of digital CMOS circuits, on-chip and off-chip bus encoding for low power, battery-powered mobile computing and communication, dynamic power management, and power-aware system-on-chip designs. The cross-disciplinary research spans the full scope of low power design technologies, including modeling and analysis of power dissipation sources, power conversion and regulation issues, IC design, system integration and PCB layout, system validation and online performance monitoring.

Established in 1996, the SPORT’s research has been funded by various contracts from NSF, DARPA, IARPA, SRC and the industry.
