The research and development work in the SystemDesign laboratory focuses on the application of effective and systematic methods for designing and verifying electronic circuits, e.g. in the form of assemblies, microcomputers, application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs), and field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs).

Research areas:

    • Design and application of microelectronic components and systems for image processing, signal processing, and microsystems technology.
    • Description languages (VHDL, SystemVerilog, SystemC, VHDL-AMS)
    • Simulation and verification of electronic systems
    • Standard cell design and FPGA implementations using CAE design tools

      Completed research projects

      • PLC2PAR - Programmable Logic Controller goes Parallel

        With the help of an evolutionary algorithm, optimal configurations for a special processor architecture are generated. These architectures have to be verified and validated from various standpoints. The Universal Verification Methodology (UVM) was used to verify this research project. Verification was carried out using selected pipeline stages based on deterministic data sets and simulated functions. Lastly, the entire system was verified and validated. Challenges were encountered in the form of generically implementing suitable coverage with a reusable test environment and generating randomized command sequences.
