Dr. Albert Koelmans
I have a longstanding interest in software and design methods for VLSI
design. This includes the STRICT design language and system. Most of my
recent work has been in the area of asynchronous design methods for VLSI,
based on the use of Petri Nets. A recurring application area for our work
is security and encryption technology.
My current interest is in the design of high-speed circuits for financial
applications, based on asynchronous Network-on-Chip technology and

Feel free to have a look at my
Google Scholar profile.
I am interested in the application of Courseware
to the teaching of Machine Architecture, and VLSI.
I participated in all past and current TLTP-EDEC projects,
and obtained a grant from the University
of Newcastle upon Tyne
to develop courseware for
teaching assembly language programming.

You can see me during the morning if you have grievances about
courses that you cannot resolve with the module leader.
You may want to ask your class rep to discuss it with me instead. I
can also give advice on course progress, optional module choices, etc.
