Associated faculty: Bellotti

The Computational Electronics Laboratory (CEL) is equipped with state-of-the-art computing and software tools. The lab has two computer clusters, one SGI ALTIX 350 (16 CPUs, 64GB of memory and 1TB disk array) running Linux Red Hat, and an AMD Opteron Cluster (32 CPUs and a 6TB disk array) running Gentoo Linux. The lab also operates a variety of high performance PCs and printers. The Computational Electronics Group develops software to study semiconductor materials and to perform electronics and optoelectronics device simulation. The group also uses commercial simulation software to simulate for technologically mature semiconductor devices.
