Intel® University Research: Focused
Intel collaborates with academic researchers to provide technical and financial support for focused research projects that push technology beyond its known limits. These long-range, interdisciplinary, university research programs, called Intel Strategic Research Alliances (ISRA), were started six years ago as collaborative efforts between Intel engineers and academic thought leaders from a variety of fields. They aim to explore and demonstrate breakthroughs that could influence Intel and the industry overall—for example, research into technologies that extend Moore’s Law or shed light on new and valuable uses for computing.
3DIC for Tick Tock
This program looks for a way to successfully exploit 3DIC technology, to design architecture and circuits that take maximum advantage of the available vertical interconnect, while avoiding hidden costs in additional complexity, design time, test effort, and yield loss.
Multifunctional Photovoltaic Systems
The primary goal of this research program is to integrate displays with multifunctional PV systems, so that they can harvest ambient light and/or backlight energy, while also providing color filtering and touch detection functionality, while at the same time, consuming less power.
On-Die communication Fabrics
This effort seeks to advance design and validation methods for on-die communication fabrics that enable a scalable communication technology for server, high-throughput computing, and SOC systems, in the 2020-2025 timeframe.
The goal of this program is to enable focused research on technologies to enhance passive cooling and support a fanless experience in consumer and business client computing platforms including, but not limited to, Handsets (smartphones), Tablets, Notebooks, and All-In-Ones, hereafter referred to collectively as Computing Platforms.
This program aims to advance state of the art post-silicon validation techniques that will enable faster validation of complex SoC’s in the 2016 timeframe.
Software for Persistent Memories
This focus of this research effort is on software infrastructure and programming models for exploiting persistent memory systems.
Video Aware Wireless Networking
Research in this program seeks to increase wireless network capacity and to improve quality of experience for video and video-based services delivered over wireless networks to intelligent, mobile end devices.
Wireline Signaling for 2025
This program is targeted at the 2025 timeframe and aims at advancing high-speed signaling technology to enable scalable link technology optimized for client and server computer systems that require board to board connectivity of less than a few meters.
