Embedded Systems


APEL has strong expertise and proven engagement in the design of embedded systems. Currently, this activity involves advanced microprocessor and DSP based system design as well true system-level designs on chip. Design strategies are employed that go from simulation to emulation / acceleration, to hardware / software virtual prototype or co-verification and, then, to system implementation. Furthermore, tools for complex design are employed. This activity relies on powerful EDA tools such as the MENTOR GRAPHICS Board Station, Renoir, Seamless, SYNOPSIS, CADENCE (lay-out) and access to COWARE and OMT (SDL). In addition, there exist platforms for µPs and DSPs and access to real-time kernels such as SUN-Chorus. The deep knowledge of embedded systems? tools and methodologies arise as a natural evolution of the long involvement of APEL in designing embedded systems, ranging from high-speed VLSI and mixed signal circuits up to embedded software / middleware development for various processor units including DSPs.

Typical areas of research activity:

  • Design of microprocessor and DSP systems based on powerful embedded processors, such as the ARM, 80960, 386EX, 486, PowerPC and DSPs.
  • Hardware / software modules based on embedded controllers for real-time industrial communications and home automation.
  • Hardware / software co-design, co-simulation and co-verification using advanced EDA tools.
  • Embedded systems for high-speed networks with emphasis on node design and internetworking.
  • Microelectronics, FPGAs, ASIC and MCM design for small low-power systems.
  • Digital signal processing with emphasis on telecommunication systems
