Pierre-Emmanuel Gaillardon, Ph.D.
Co-Founder & Scientific Lead
Dr. Gaillardon pioneered RRAM-based FPGAs having started researching the topic of emerging memories as early as 2008. The inventor of RRAM-based FPGAs during his PhD thesis, an invention refined with solid theoretical analysis and layout-level evaluations during his postdoctoral position (2011-2015) at EPFL (Lausanne, Switzerland). Dr. Gaillardon advises the testing and development for ReRouting’s FPGAs, leveraging 10+ years of research experience in developing novel FPGA architectures for CMOS and emerging technologies. Dr. Gaillardon has published >150 peer-reviewed conference and journal papers in his field, holds 10 patents, and received the 2018 NSF career award for his contribution in emerging technology.
Xifan Tang, PhD
Dr. Tang has a strong background in VLSI design and EDA techniques having conducted years of research across all the aspects of FPGA architecture and CAD flow. From 2011 to 2017, Dr. Xifan Tang was a graduate research assistant with the Integrated Systems Laboratory of Prof. Giovanni De Micheli at EPFL (Lausanne, Switzerland). During this period, he collaborated with Prof. Pierre-Emmanuel Gaillardon in developing novel circuit design, architecture and CAD techniques for emerging RRAM-based FPGAs. Dr. Tang has >20 peer-reviewed conference and journal publications and holds 4 U.S. patents.
