Welcome to Nexys

Nexys, the NSF Industry/University Collaborative Research Center on Next Generation Electronic System Design, provides a formal framework allowing a seamless communication channel between academic and industrial institutions for enabling innovation in semiconductor devices, design flows, and resulting systems. Over the years, National Science Foundation's (NSF's) Industry/University Cooperative Research Centers (I/UCRCs) have led the way to a new era of partnership between universities and industry, featuring high-quality, industrially relevant fundamental research, strong industrial support of and collaboration in research and education, and direct transfer of university developed ideas, research results, and technology to U.S. industry. In this context, Nexys is redefining the path to enabling higher system functionality in the face of application and technology-driven challenges, by developing cross-layer design and test tools and methodologies for next generation electronic system design.
