Develop, communicate, optimize, innovate...
The Institute of Reconfigurable & Embedded Digital Systems (REDS) has a range of expertise in AR&D of high-performance onboard systems. This expertise is divided into three broad areas of focus described below. The systems developed generally combine ARM processor with an FPGA for efficient processing. Designing such platforms requires expertise in both hardware (eg PCB and FPGA) and software (eg Linux drivers, OS porting, wireless communications, onboard applications).
The Institute maintains close ties with industry but also conducts research. It has carried out many industrial, national and European projects.
A few examples:
- a 26-layer FPGA card with 32 high-speed 10Gb/s links, including several connected to optical transceivers;
- a multi-OS virtualization platform
- a file system for satellites
- a guitar pitch detector
- optimization of genomic data processing on FPGA.
