Professor Cheng manages two research labs: SoC Design and Test Lab and Learning-based Multimedia Lab. The SoC Design and Test Lab focuses on developing methodologies, algorithms, techniques, and tools for validating, verifying, testing, and analyzing system-on-chip (SoC), flexible electronics, and 3D devices. The Learning-Based Multimedia (LBMM) Group has wide interests in various algorithms and techniques for multimedia applications, but its current focus is Mobile Computer Vision, Mobile Augmented Reality, and Medical Image Viewing: addressing the main challenges for achieving the required real-time performance of vision and medical image viewing tasks with minimum energy consumption in a mobile, embedded environment, including designing a new energy-efficient parallel architecture for these tasks.
