The "Embedded Electronics" research unit is active in the field of embedded systems design and implementation.
An embedded system is any object containing electronics/microelectronics (and the associated embedded software) in order to better fulfill its core function. Application domains are extremely wide and include:
- telecom and multimedia devices
- industrial devices
- power electronics devices
- transport and logistics
- biomedical devices
Embedded systems offer the difficult challenge of adressing severe and multiple constraints using limited resources.
Our research activities focus on 4 major axes:
- multi-processor System-on-Chips with real-time operating systems (MPSoC/RTOS)
- better algorithm/architecture adequation using system-level design flows
- 3D-chips design and optimization
- control of power electronics devices
See our "research projects" for more details.
More generally, our expertise allows us to be a reference team for anyone who wants to build an embedded or "electronics" system. We master and teach the following disciplines:
- digital electronics/microelectronics on classical (microprocessors, FPGAs, DSPs) or advanced (SoCs, MPSoCs, NoCs, etc) architectures
- analog electronics (low-frequency part: instrumentation)
- power electronics
- industrial electronics
- embedded and real-time systems
- electronics design
