Summary of Personal Activities:
Prof Constantinides's research interests cover the theory and practice of using hardware to implement fast algorithms, especially numerical algorithms. He has active research in the architectures, synthesis tools, and applications of reconfigurable hardware (FPGAs) for this purpose. He coined the term "lossy synthesis" to describe circuit synthesis techniques allowing a controlled tradeoff between quality, typically numerical accuracy, and traditional metrics such as area and power. Much of his EDA work retains a focus on lossy techniques.
