Research Specification

The main research areas of the Group are related to design methods for high-performance and very large-scale integrated circuits (VLSI). The group is involved also in the testing of these components. Since design methods are often put into practice with the help of CAD tools their development is an important research activity of the Group.
Research deals for example with the high-level synthesis of VLSI circuits. Many projects conducted by the Group are oriented toward practical application of the tools and technologies developed. Among the practical applications considered are video processing parallel computing, signal processing, telecommunications, neural-network and rapid sampling systems. Several members of the Group have been involved in a major project funded by the Synergie program and aimed at the development of video processing prototype system.
