  Computer Systems Design Laboratory (CSDL)

The Computer Systems Design Laboratory (CSDL) focuses on the design, implementation and verification of systems whose primary components include computers. CSDL research addresses the design of computing systems ranging from small embedded elements to large distributed computing environments covering all aspects of the system lifecycle from requirements analysis through testing and validation.
