Hardware acceleration for homomorphic encryption
Offer N°: SL-DRT-15-0179
The emergence of cloud computing and cyber-physical systems has led to consider security in data treatment as a major concern. In order to insure the confidentiality of managed data, encryption is today widely used.
In 2009, C. Gentry  proposed the first fully homomorphic encryption system, enabling to compute preliminary encrypted data without decrypting them. This progress has opened a significant number of new industrial and research perspectives.
Monitoring of high temperature effects on CMOS circuits

Deep sub-micron technologies become unavoidable even for critical applications in fields like automotive or nuclear industry. This evolution may have an important impact on the reliability of electronic systems involved in such applications in the absence of pro-active mitigation approaches.
Very High Temperature DC/DC embedded power supply
Offer N°: SL-DRT-15-0077
The availability of Wide BandGap active components (GaN, SiC) has enabled placing power electronics converters (actuator control, variable speed drives ...) in high ambient temperatures > 200 ° C . However, many hard spots remain, particularly the constraints imposed by passive components. A promising way of exploration is to increase the switching frequency to reduce passives components and then to allow technological leaps.
Exploration and optimization of software architecture for real-time embedded applications
Offer N°: SL-DRT-15-0292
In embedded systems, the multitasks conception and execution model is an essential component to correctly design and execute applications. It provides a programming and execution model for the optimal use of the hardware platform. In this context, the fundamental purpose of an execution model based on the Time-Triggered paradigm is to enable the development of temporally deterministic, therefore reproducible, systems.
