Welcome to the website of Embedded Systems Group which is a sub division of the Digital Techniques Research Group of De Nayer. Current projects are:
Currently active projects
This project explores the possibilities of OpenCL, a rather new C based framework for programming multicore architectures. The intention is to look into the claims made by the Khronos consortium about the openness, that it is hardware independent and the performance gain possible by using OpenCL.
The purpose of this project is to develop a flexible embedded multifunctional digital camera system / prototype
The purpose of this project is to study and document a new embedded system design methodology used by Philips Leuven. To evaluate and test the design methodology, several cases will be implemented.
The 'embedded systems' technological advisory service provides the knowledge of different research institutes to help companies with
embedded system initiatives.
The main partners are:
- Hogeschool voor Wetenschap & Kunst, campus De Nayer
- KAHO Sint Lieven
- DSP Valley - IMEC
The purpose of this project is investigate the advantages and difficulties of using softcore and hardcore FPGA's when building embedded systems. A softcore FPGA is a FPGA programmed with a softcore processor. A hardcore FPGA can be defined as a FPGA with a 'hard' (full custom) processor on its die.
All projects are conducted in close cooperation with companies so that there is a good correlation between practice and science.
