Digital Embedded Systems

The work developed in the digital system design area has evolved from the ASIC and microelectronic design, made in the 90s to the current development of complete embedded systems, including hardware, software and communications. This evolution has been complemented with a large activity in the field of design methods and tools. The current activities in this area are mainly devoted to the following lines:

All these areas are quite complementary and the research group develops interdisciplinary projects to take advantage of the resources and knowledge in any of the research sub-lines. For instance, the work related with embedded intelligence is currently linked to reconfigurable systems, as the intelligence is being approached based on the dynamic reconfiguration of hardware devices to improve the learning capabilities of the proposed architectures.

The funding scheme of this area is based on public national funds, mainly from Plan Nacional (MCInn), CENIT and AVANZA I+D, EU funds (from FP7, ECOInnovation and ARTEMIS JTI) and also with direct contract with the industry, cooperating with companies as MTP, INETSIS, CAF Signalling, Thales Alenia Space, etc.

Digital Embedded Systems: Projects

  • SCOTT: Secure Connected Trustable Things

    SCOTT – Secure COnnected Trustable Things, a pan-European effort with 57 key partners from 12 countries (EU and Brazil), will provide comprehensive cost-efficient solutions of wireless, end-to-end secure, trustworthy connectivity and interoperability (Technology Readiness Level 6-7) to bridge the last mile to market implementation. SCOTT will not just deal with ‚things that are connected‘, but with ‚trustable things that securely communicate‘, i.e. things interconnected by dependable wireless technology and valuing the end-users‘ privacy rules.
