Embedded Parallel Systems Group (EPS)



The core competence of the group is the development of embedded systems consisting of hardware and firmware for fast parallel data acquisition and processing. The various modules can be extended to a massively parallel system with different communication channels. For these systems, special algorithms are developed to meet the requirements in terms of processing speed and data flow. The demanding algorithms are often implemented in FPGAs, since the architecture of these components enables a very effective realization. Our specific hardware developments include both analog and circuits.


The PCB design team of IPE takes advantage of the close and effective cooperation with the developers and the center for electronic packaging of IPE. The simulations for signal integrity, electromagnetic compatibility and thermal analysis have been successfully used for challenging developments.
