New high temperature (>250°C) integrated sensor interface architectures in SOI technologies
Offer N°: SL-DRT-14-0362
The goal of this thesis is to study the full integration of a high temperature (T> 250°C) sensor interface in an SOI technology in order to contribute to the realization of autonomous and communicant sensor nodes for harsh environment application like in-service aerospace jet engine monitoring or well drilling.
Event-based energy management infrastructure : application to a sense&react mixed-signal architecture
Offer N°: SL-DRT-14-0375
Future applications in the context of internet of things (IoT) will require an efficient energy management considering the very low energy budget of that kind of circuits. In this frame, this PhD work objective is to propose a complete energy management integrated infrastructure, dissociated from the functional part of the IoT node.
Optimizing data transfers in distributed multiprocessors using just-in-time compilation and dedicated hardware support
Offer N°: SL-DRT-14-0339
Modern Systems on chip integrate more and more computing resources and memory to meet the ever increasing performance needs. Sadly, these highly parallel architectures have serious programming issues mainly due to the data exchange between processing cores. Two architectural solutions prevail today. The first one tries to keep a unified shared memory by implementing complex hardware coherence mechanisms between physically distributed memories.
Coordination rules generation from automata, in the context of redeployments of distributed control systems
Offer N°: SL-DRT-14-0341
The general context of this PhD thesis is to enable a reliable redeployment of a distributed application during its execution. The target applications operate continuously, eg building automation, water supply system or industrial process control.
There are many reasons for redeployment: load balancing, reducing the energy footprint of the physical infrastructure, update without stopping the application, hardware and / or software redundancy for fault tolerance.
