Jens Brandenburg completed his doctoral dissertation with magna cum laude

Jens Brandenburg completed his dissertation entitled „Generische Analysemethoden für den Systementwurf heterogener eingebetteter Mehrkernsysteme“ ("Generic Analysis Methods for the Design of Heterogeneous Embedded Multi-Core Systems") at the Friedrich-Alexander-University (FAU) Erlangen-Nuremberg with magna cum laude. The thesis was developed in cooperation between the FAU Erlangen-Nuremberg (Chair of Computer Science 3 - Computer Architecture) and the Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute HHI (Research Group Embedded Systems of the Department of Video Coding and Machine Learning).

The examination board chaired by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Felix Freiling (FAU Erlangen-Nuremberg) consisted of the first expert Prof. Dr.-Dietmar Fey (FAU Erlangen-Nuremberg), the second expert Prof. Dr.-Ing. Benno Stabernack (University of Potsdam/Fraunhofer HHI) and the third examiner Prof. Dr.-Ing. André Kaup (FAU Erlangen-Nuremberg).

The central feature of Jens Brandenburg’s thesis are new analysis methods for HW/SW co-simulation models to support the integrated HW/SW co-design process. Starting from a hybrid model analysis, all further analysis functions are automatically adapted to the system to be examined in order to ensure a non-intrusive and combined analysis of all existing hardware and software components.

Jens Brandenburg took up his work at Fraunhofer HHI in 2006 as a research associate in the Embedded Systems research group. He is now active in the Image and Video Coding group.
