The Embedded Systems Design Platform—created by Saclay-based List and Grenoble-based Leti—ended 2013 with a remarkable achievement. Its engineers developed a revolutionary new system design approach that enabled high-tech firm M3Systems to double the performance of one of its systems, while optimizing its size and power consumption. The new approach uses a high-level virtual prototyping environment that lets engineers rapidly map out and test innovative ideas for algorithms, processors, architecture, and embedded software. They can then design, make, and test their new ideas in record time.
These systems can meet even the most demanding specifications for size, power consumption, and safety. One example is a new cable-testing ASIC that is 8 times more accurate and 30 times faster than the current benchmark!
