The research group HuCE-microLab develops hardware-algorithms in microelectronics, signal-processing and control. The group concentrates on application-specific implementations of algorithms in hardware solutions using ASIC or FPGA. When implementing algorithms using the method of hardware/software co-design, we profit from combinations of both, the flexible microprocessor technology and the high-speed application-specific ASIC/FPGA technology.
In our research and development activities, we focus on energy efficiency, processing performance, and miniaturization. Current R&D projects cover the application fields of mass-spectrometry, optical coherence tomography, esophagus ECG recording-systems in biomedical engineering, smart-cards and sensor networks in sports, and health-care.
