Prof. Leupers is Keynote Speaker at the "4th IEEE INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON WIRELESS SYSTEMS" within the "IEEE INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCES ON INTELLIGENT DATA ACQUISITION AND ADVANCED COMPUTING SYSTEMS"

Lviv Polytechnic National University, Lviv, Ukraine

Prof. Leupers will give a talk about "Enabling Future Wireless Platforms with Heterogeneous Multicore SoC´s" on the 21st of September 2018.

Virtually all digital IC platforms today are based on flexible programmable processor cores, with a trend towards Multi/Manycore architectures comprising 10-100 cores. This trend is imposed by high performance and power/energy efficiency demands. Specifically in competitive embedded application domains like smartphones, wireless infrastructure, and automotive, there are tight efficiency constraints on power, energy, timing, design cost, and production cost of the underlying HW platforms. The need for flexibility and efficiency leads to heterogeneous platform architectures, composed of off-the-shelf (yet partially customizable) IP cores, like RISCs, and custom application-specific processors, such as DSP or security accelerators. Moreover, these cores communicate over complex on-chip interconnect and memory subsystem architectures. These trends impose huge challenges for ICT system and semiconductor industry. Novel design methodologies and tools are required for managing the skyrocketing HW platform design complexity, while simultaneously optimizing systems and components for performance, power, and costs. Furthermore, migrating legacy application code or firmware as well as developing and debugging new software for highly parallel HW platforms causes a significant embedded SW productivity gap. This talk presents various advanced system-level design methodologies in a practice-oriented way and also provides an outlook on upcoming HW security issues.
