Advanced   Chip   
Test  Laboratory.

The Advanced Chip Test Laboratory (ACTL) at Carnegie Mellon University develops and implements data-mining techniques for improving the security, operation, design, manufacturing and testing of integrated systems. Our research involves data-mining algorithm development, data analysis, chip design, testing and diagnosis in collaboration with various industrial partners that currently include Google, Broadcom, Qualcomm and GlobalFoundries. The founder and head of ACTL is Prof. Shawn Blanton.
