Space, time and frequency diversity for accurate range and angle of arrival measurement in UWB
Offer N°: SL-DRT-15-0008
The objective of the PhD is to explore the use of a 2-4 antennas subsystem with an Ultra-Wide-Band (UWB) RF front-end to bring angle of arrival estimation. The research aims to analyze by models the impact of the propagation, the antennas and the RF path imperfections on the estimation, to establish performance bounds and to propose architectural solutions and algorithms.
Exploration of wiring diagnostics via compressive sensing: Algorithms and ultra-compact Analog-to-Information (A2I) architectures
Offer N°: SL-DRT-15-0162
Wired networks are considered as the backbones of complex systems. The increase of the complexity of modern systems has come with the increase of wire lengths. Whatever their application domain, wires can be subject to aggressive environmental conditions which may create defects. These defects can have dramatic consequences and if not detected soon can be the cause of deadly accident.
Event-based, bio-inspired coding and unsupervised learning for Deep Neural Networks, using artificial synapses
Offer N°: SL-DRT-15-0102
The last couple of years have seen a renewed interest in deep learning and deep neural networks (DNNs). Advances in hardware and in particular the use of high-end graphic processing units (GPUs) have enabled the realization of large and powerful networks , that are the first pattern recognizers capable of human-competitive performances on handwritten characters recognition, traffic signs recognition or face recognition .
Hardware support for interprocess communications in multi-core circuits
Offer N°: SL-DRT-15-0005
This study aims at improving the performances of synchronization primitives (barriers, distributed mutexes, etc.) in multicore integrated circuits, by offering architectural improvements for transport of synchronization messages, and hardware/software accelerators for the most performance-constrained primitives.
