Microelectronics and Digital Signal Processing Research Group
Description and research objectives
The research activities of ERMETIS, created in May 1990, relate to the development and application of original concepts for real-time and intelligent systems in the fields of data processing, microelectronics, and electrical engineering. The recent development of high technologies allowed the appearance of new fields of study on person-system interfaces as well as on the design and the simulation of general-purpose or dedicated information processing systems.
Through its multidisciplinary composition, the ERMETIS research group combines expertise from several research sectors such as signal processing, including audio signal analysis and recognition, computer hardware design and reconfiguration, event-based simulation, advanced electric machine control, design and field application of micro and macro electronic systems (DSP/FPGA/ASIC), and high speed communication interfaces as well as power electronics. These sectors thus cover the fields of computer engineering, electronics, electrotechnics, multimedia, and automated systems. Several research results have found commercial and industrial applications.
The interaction of these sectors makes it possible to support all the realization phases of dedicated real-time and concurrent systems, that is to say:
These works also have a common point: software development. Software engineering is thus the object of permanent activities within ERMETIS, such as the deployment of strict standards of development (ISO 9000), and of automated development environments.
