HW/SW Co-Exploration Methodologies
Our research in this field aims at the development of tools to support the designer in an early design stage to choose the right system architecture.
Programming Models for Parallel Signal Processing
Our research aims at the usage, bottleneck analysis and extension of readily available programming models for embedded parallel architectures especially for multi media signal processing applications.
Advanced Architectures for Multi Media Signal Processing
The increase in complexity of signal processing algorithms demands an ever growing need for performance and power, where in most cases strict real time constraints need to be met.
Rapid Prototyping Techniques
Electronic system design especially in the field of designing complex system on chip (SoC) architectures suffers more and more from simulation and verification time due to the raise of complexity in the last decades. To solve the problem of high verification time, rapid prototyping techniques becoming more and more popular to assists/support conventional verification techniques.
Parallel Processing Architectures for Digital Signal Processing
Our research in this field focusses on the design of application specific processors, accompanied specialized instruction sets and interconnection dedicated to multi media signal processing.
