SPI2 Research Topics

SPI2 involves multiple interconnected research facets. Examples include:

  • Complex 3D Components Packing and Layout Design
  • 3D Interconnect Routing
  • Graph-based System Architecture and Topology Enumeration
  • Graph-based Optimization using Reinforcement Learning
  • Mathematical Abstractions. For example: spatial graphs, braids, knots, etc.
  • Topology Optimization (material distribution topology optimization)
  • Multiphysics modeling and simulation, including dynamic models and active control
  • Robotics: Component Assembly & Disassembly, Motion/Trajectory Planning
  • SPI2 Design Representations and Unified Geometric Parameterizations
  • Evaluation of Life-cycle Processes and System Operation Metrics
  • SPI2 Design for Industrial Applications
Figure: The SPI2 system design research has multiple facets of which four important SPI2 design problem elements (3D component packing, 3D interconnect routing, physics-based optimization framework, design abstractions/representations, etc.), and other design considerations such as life-cycle and operational process metrics are mentioned here. Furthermore, SPI2 design research is applicable to a wide variety of practical industry-relevant problems at various design scales (system-, cabinet-, or device-level applications).
