The Institute for Communication Technologies and Embedded Systems (ICE) is jointly directed by Prof. Gerd Ascheid (Chair for Integrated Signal Processing Systems, ISS) and Prof. Rainer Leupers (Chair for Software for Systems on Silicon, SSS), who collaborate closely in research and complement each other with their expertise.

Key research areas at ICE:

  • Digital receivers for wireless communication systems: from algorithm to implementation
  • M2M communication systems (e.g. in Cyber Physical Systems)
  • Sensor signal processing and machine learning
  • Hardware and chip architectures for embedded systems and IoT devices, in particular multiprocessor systems-on-chip (MPSoC)
  • Electronic system-level (ESL) design tools for complex integrated circuits and systems
  • Software development tools for heterogeneous multicore architectures
  • Hardware security
