Embedded systems are objects containing electronics/microelectronics (and the associated software) in order to fulfill their core function. They come in a
variety of forms and shapes, going from low-power sensor devices to high-performance multi-processor systems-on-chip. Embedded systems offer the difficult
challenge of adressing severe and multiple constraints using limited resources.

The Embedded Electronics research unit is specialized in the design of
embedded systems on ASIC or FPGA platforms, as well as the integration of embedded electronics in complex systems. 

The following research fields are
currently being investigated by our research unit: 
- multi-processor System-on-Chips with real-time operating systems (MPSoC/RTOS) (DM)
- better
algorithm/architecture adequation using system-level design flows (DM)
- 3D-chips design and optimization (DM)
- wireless communication and localization systems
- FPGA and software design for software-defined radios (FQ)
- UAV-based wireless communication systems (FQ)
- didactics of electricity/electronics:
domain-of-validity based teaching and learning strategies (FR)
- rad-hard FPGA-based physics instrumentation for high energy particle colliders (LHC) (FR)
