Optimization of energy and performance of applications on heterogeneous micro-servers
Offer N°: SL-DRT-16-0732
Micro-servers are an emerging format of servers designed to treat workloads on scalable applications "scale out". To meet market requirements, the heterogeneity of these systems is becoming a growing trend. In addition, energy consumption and computing power are the basic constraints for the design and management of micro-servers. The performance to watt ratio has become the most important sales criterion.
Reuse of embedded sofware code artefacts by Refactoring
Offer N°: SL-DRT-16-0744
This PhD subject is about the evolution of embedded software when targeting embedded, multi-processor or evaluation platforms, and how this can be expressed and supported by domain-specific refactorings. It will take into account how software is rewritten to target high performance embedded platforms, exposing advanced architectures (parallel and very high efficiency) and advanced software optimizations, and how this work should be expressed and supported by adequate refactorings.
Computing System Resistant to High Levels of Total Ionizing Dose implemented in Deep-Submicron CMOS Technology
Offer N°: SL-DRT-16-0724
Commercial electronic devices will generally survive very short time when subjected to ionizing radiation. This is why we use "hardened" electronic systems, i.e. systems designed to withstand this kind of environment. A range of hardened components qualified for the space industry, which includes microprocessors or FPGAs, is currently available. Although interesting, these components are not adapted to the constraints of civilian nuclear environments.
Innovative materials and synthetis for advance RF devices
Offer N°: SL-DRT-16-0746
There is strong interest to develop new innovative materials for 5th Generation of network telephony switches. These components are integrated on top of CMOS chips and must show low power consumption and reduce dice size with several frequency bands. In this context, the materials based on transition metal chalcogenide have specific electric properties such as resistive transition adapted to the needs of RF switches.
