Professor Yun joined the faculty at UC San Diego in 1994. Following his
Master's degree at MIT in 1985, he joined TRW as a member of the technical
start, where he had designed numerous high performance signal processors for
spaceborne and tactical applications. In 1990, he )oined Hitachi Micro
Systems as a senior design engineer to investigate the next generation
microprocessor emulator architecture.
Synthesis, verification, and analysis of mixed-timed digital VLSI circuits
and systems: design methodologies and tools; applications to ultra-high
performance processor design and high-speed networking.
The synthesis, verification, and analysis of niixed-timed VLSI designs: in
particular, interface design methodologies and tools to facilitate Ultra
High-Speed communications between synchronous modules operating at different
clock frequencies and between synchronous and asynchronous modules and
between asynchronous and asynchronous modules.
