Daniel Gajski is particularly interested in requirements and specifications of embedded systems and the design process that leads from an executable specification to the final manufacturable blueprint. In order to study the design process, his group is developing new specification languages and modeling guidelines, as well as simulation, synthesis, and verification tools. In order to obtain efficient specifications and design models, they are taxonomizing models of computations, platform architectures and design styles. In order to develop efficient CAD tools, they are studying synthesis algorithms for systems, architectures, processors, controllers, datapaths, and other intellectual properties (IPs). Their further goal is to build proof-of-concept tools and prove our methodology for different application domains and tools on extensive industrial-strength examples.
