Research interests

Design of adaptive hardware architectures

The demands laid down microarchitectures are increasing steadily, and much of the technological innovation of recent decades has only been made possible by the progress of the semiconductor industry and the accomplished increases in integrated circuit performance. A further increase of the
performance of integrated circuits is no longer self-evident, because physical limits will be reached soon. New architectures have to be designed in order to meet the increasing demands at this point.

ITK Venture & Innovation Lab

The ITK Venture & Innovation Lab offers the opportunity to actively shape innovation projects and develop customer-focused prototypes. In this way, science and business are growing even closer together in the coming years. All student projects are linked to existing research and innovation projects. One of these is Smart Textile, in which the linking of textiles with intelligent sensor technology is being investigated. Here, students can work on different aspects and design prototypes to further develop "smart textiles".

Artificial intelligence in embedded systems

The performance of embedded systems can be increased enormously by integrating AI algorithms that are adapted to the embedded hardware. Through a hardware/software co-design, a fast and efficient AI execution on embedded systems can be realized. For the development of new cyber-physical systems (CPS) and Internet of Things (IoT) products, AI is becoming an increasingly important factor.
