PartnersRuhr-University Bochum (RUB)

The chair of Embedded Systems of the information Technology (ESIT) at the Ruhr-University Bochum does research in the area of new hardware / software systems.

The development and the application of new methods for hardware and software realization, as well as the programming, requires the rising complexity of future embedded systems in the information technology. Typical areas of application in the information technology come from the areas of the image processing, measuring technology, mobile communication, control engineering and control technology, Security and many more. In these domains, the demands increase more and more for a huge data throughput with maximum energy efficiency (arithmetic operations / watt). In particular, the reduction of power dissipation and improvement of the computational efficiency is one of the most important aspects for mobile systems. This can be reached only by the consequent application of new multicore technologies as well as the use of reconfigurable hardware as for example Field Programmable gate Arrays (FPGA).
