Embedded Systems for Information Technology
The chair for Embedded Systems for Information Technology (ESIT) does research in the field of novel hardware / software systems. Increasing complexity of current and future embedded systems requires the development and the consistent application of novel design methods to realize hardware and software plus programming for application integration. Typical applications in Information Technology are from the fields of image processing, measuring, mobile communication, feedback control systems and control engineering, security and many more. In these applications the demands on a high data throughput at a maximum processing efficiency (computing operations / Watt) rise. Especially the reduction of power loss and the increase of processing efficiency are important aspects for mobile systems. This is only possible by the consistent application of novel multicore technologies and by using reconfigurable hardware as e.g. Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA). This is one particular focus of the chair and the goal of designing own FPGA architectures is pursued including their physical realization and practical application.
