Chips that do one thing well have been hyped as a pathway beyond the end of the Moore's Law era. But the promise of these specialized microprocessors just suffered a reality check from Princeton University researchers.

Princeton researchers, in collaboration with Analog Devices Inc., have fabricated a chip that markedly boosts the performance and efficiency of neural networks — computer algorithms modeled on the workings of the human brain.
In a series of tests, the Princeton chip performed tens to hundreds of times better than...
The School of Engineering and Applied Science has granted Excellence Awards to four graduate students in electrical engineering.
The awards honor those graduate students, in their fourth year or later, who have performed remarkably in their coursework, teaching and research. A one-time grant of $2,000 goes to each recipient in order to...

In an initiative to boost collaborations on subjects too new to fit into existing departments and centers, the School of Engineering and Applied Science has created a program to fund small, cross-disciplinary groups of...
Yuxin Chen, assistant professor of electrical engineering, has been awarded a three-year grant by the Air Force Young Investigators Research Program (YIP).
