Design evaluation, fault diagnosis and failure analysis of VLSI circuits; signal and image processing, economical evaluation of VLSI manufacturing, diagnosis of human vestibular system, self-diagnostic and self-repairable quantum computers
The advanced information society is supported by systems based on highly integrated hardware, software, and humans. Hardware has developed from the era when they were called integrated circuits (IC), through large-scale integrated circuits (LSI) and further to very large scale integrated circuit (VLSI). Together with the increasing degree of integration, their functions also advanced by leaps and bounds. On the other hand, the diagnosis of VLSI is also becoming exponentially difficult, together with the increase of the degree of integration and complexity of their functions. People also need more advanced diagnosis, as a variety of disease symptoms are emerging due to causes such as psychological stress factors coming from the increasing complexity of social structures. Furthermore, the entire system requires operational technologies in order to optimize efficiency, cost, etc. With these problems in view, we have been conducting research and education on diagnosis, diagnosis simplifying technologies, evaluation and operation of integrated systems that also include people, on the basis of system technologies, such as VLSI design technologies, VLSI testing technologies, quantum computer realizing technologies, advanced information processing technologies for i.e. image processing, simulation and optimization technologies, etc.

The four-digit phone numbers are extensions at Osaka University. To call directly from outside Osaka University, dial a phone number marked S after (area code 06) 6850 or a phone number marked T after (area code 06) 6879. For a phone number marked S (extension), however, first dial the main phone number (06) 6879-5111.
