Objectives / summary This research work aims to develop a fault-tolerant embedded system using Xilinx FPGAs. The research work will involve designing novel hardware architectures and study and implementation of adequate fault-tolerant mechanisms. Expected outputs of this work are the implementation of prototypes for real-time fault-tolerant architectures.
Required education Level and research experience The candidate should have an MSc degree in Computer Science and Engineering, or Electrical and Electronic Engineering and research project experience in System on a Chip design using FPGAs from Xilinx. The candidate should be familiarized with most common fault-tolerance mechanisms on FPGAs. Language skills - proficiency in English. Preference will be given to candidates willing to pursue a PhD degree.
