Efficient Computing Group (ECG) develops efficient technologies for future computing, communication
and interfacing. In the recent years, we have focused on mobile
systems. It is our
mission to provide enabling technologies for mobile systems in
another decade beyond form factors like smartphone and tablet. Our current research projects include system software, wireless subsystems, and hardware architecture.
Efficient Computing Group
is led by Prof.
Lin Zhong and is
Duncan Hall. The research laboratory is located in 3039 Duncan
If you enjoy building systems and find our recent work interesting, contact any of us for opportunities in undergraduate and graduate research assistantships.
