Manoj Sachdev is a professor in electrical and computer engineering department at university of waterloo, Canada. His research interests include low power and high performance digital circuit design, mixed-signal circuit design, test and manufacturing issues of integrated circuits. He has written a book, two book chapters on testing and has published significantly in conferences and journals. He received the best paper award for his paper in European Design and Test Conference, 1997 and an honorable mention award for his paper in International Test Conference, 1998. He holds more than 10 granted and several pending US patents in the area of VLSI design and test. He is a senior member of IEEE.

He received his B.E. degree (with Honors) in electronics and communication engineering from University of Roorkee (India), and Ph.D. from Brunel University (UK). He was with Semiconductor Complex Limited, Chandigarh (India) from 1984 till 1989 where he designed CMOS Integrated Circuits. From 1989 till 1992, he worked in the ASIC division of SGS-Thomson at Agrate (Milan). In 1992, he joined Philips Research Laboratories, Eindhoven, where he researched on various aspects of VLSI testing and manufacturing.







Technology scaling makes it possible to realize systems on a chip. Such complex devices with multi-million transistors offer significant benefits. However, there are several challenges emerging in design, manufacturing and testing of such complex devices. Dr. Sachdev's current research interests address some of these challenges. In particular, his research interests include:
