Emerging Non-volatile Memories Impact on Operating Systems
Offer N°: SL-DRT-15-0199
Emerging non-volatile memories will allow to replace DRAM used as computer main memories as well as, partially, Flash and hard-disk drives used as mass memory. These memory components will be denser, cheaper and consume less than DRAM. This thesis aims at revisiting operating systems organization to take benefit of their non-volatility to optimize computers performances and power consumption.
CMOS Image sensors embedding in-pixel sensing and energy harvesting capabilities
Offer N°: SL-DRT-15-0384
The aim of this PhD work is to explore new architectures of CMOS Image Sensors dedicated to very low power applications. These sensors will have to be an ultra-low power system with energy harvesting capabilities (photovoltaic mode).
Integrated network routing system base of ternary resistive associative memory
Offer N°: SL-DRT-15-0408
The proposed research work consists in the design and realization of a comprehensive solution for network packet routing, based on the resistive memory technologies developed at LETI. The new architecture will require innovating and optimized solutions for data pre indexing and non-blocking update, around the original ternary associative memory component. Special attention will be given to variability compensation and energy efficiency.
Application - Java Virtual Machine interaction for compilation
Offer N°: SL-DRT-15-0481
The PhD objective is to give access to low level code generation at the application level in a Java Virtual Machine (JVM). This objective become necessary because application performances are more and more sensitive to the data set characteristics and because it become difficult to use Java in embedded systems and/or high performance applications.
