Consortium

1. Tool Providers






SOFTEAM is France-based SME with premises in Paris area, Nantes, Rennes and Sofia-Antipolis.

SOFTEAM
is a CASE tool editor and an IT service provider. Its Objectering (http://www.objecteering.com) and the new generation Modelio (http://modeliosoft.com) tools provide comprehensive solution for UML and MDA methodologies.

In the context of the ENOSYS project, SOFTEAM intends to build a solid tool support for embedded system design and description generation based on UML, SysML and MARTE.

SOFTEAM
is the Co-ordinator of the ENOSYS project.

AXILICA is a Loughborough (UK) based SME developing innovative electronic design automation technology and is funded by IPSO Ventures.
Axilica has developed a powerful new behavioural synthesis tool FalconML that enables the use of the Unified Modelling Language (UML) for the design of electronic hardware. Our technology uses model-based techniques to greatly increase designer productivity when implementing today's highly complex electronic systems.

 

  • Construct complex systems with considerably reduced development times
  • Minimise product development costs
  • Reach markets ahead of competitors
  • Rapidly add key differentiating features

 

In the context of the ENOSYS project, AXILICA intends to enhance its tools to support new interfaces for embedded system design such as MARTE and multi-core CPU.

2. Academia Partners









 

Loughborough University is world renowned for the high calibre of research it produces. The campus is home to more than 40 Research Institutes and Centres spread across 23 academic departments. Loughborough University is the ’Sunday Times’ University of the Year for 2009, in honour of the quality of the University’s teaching and research, its consistent high rankings in the National Student Survey, the University’s unbeaten six Queen’s Anniversary Prizes and its outstanding success in sport. At the end of 2007, Loughborough was presented with two Times Higher Awards, for the Best Student Experience, and Outstanding Support for Overseas Students - the second successive year that the University was awarded the Best Student Experience title.

The quality of the University’s research was also confirmed by the results of the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise. Every department was found to be undertaking research that is internationally recognised, with ten departments having over 20% of their research judged to be ‘world leading’. The Times Higher Education magazine named Loughborough as one of three rising stars among research-intensive universities.

The Electronic and Electrical Engineering Department generates over £3 million in research contracts each year from world-leading engineering companies and Government Research Councils. The Department is currently ranked 7th in ‘The Times’ UK top Universities Guide.

LU is responsible for coordinating Design and Technology work in the project (WP3) that involves the work being executed by LU and UPEL. LU will be developing additional features to enhance the usefulness of the flow and to add value to the flow for potential customers. In particular, LU will implement both the design space exploration executive and the VLIW multicore CPU toolchain.

Overall architecture and Microarchitecture lead for the programmable subsystem of the ENOSYS project, including:

  • Adaptation of the FreeBSD VLIW engine to the project requirements
  • Specification of the Parallel Software Model
  • Design and Implementation of the Toolchain for the open-source VLIW CPU
  • Integration of the open-source VLIW CPU to the FalconML output
  • Design and Implementation of a Design Space Exploration executive to automate the search of the architectural solution space

Computer Systems Laboratory of University of Peloponnese was established in 2007. The Lab covers the teaching of hardware and networks/communications courses of the Department of Computer Science and Technology program of studies and performs research in the area of computer systems implementations.

Computer Systems Laboratory will contribute to ENOSYS its expertise in EDA tools development and will participate to the development of the ENOSYS tool supported design flow.

In the context of ENOSYS, University of Peloponnese/Computer Systems Laboratory will develop a prototype tool for high level code optimization. Code optimization will be achieved through the application of transformations for the optimization of data storage and transfers behavior and parallelism. The tool will aim at optimizing the action code of UML diagrams before the application of conventional high level synthesis. University of Peloponnese will also support system companies for the development of test cases using the ENOSYS tool flow.

University of Peloponnese/Computer Systems Laboratory aims at developing innovative design technology, linking it with commercial tools and having it evaluated in real life industrial test cases.

3. Industry End Users






 
 

Thales communications is an entity of THALES Group addressing every activity related to telecommunications: radio-communications, IP networks, satellite communication, network administration and security. They develop a full range of telecommunication platforms and components, a range of high performance security products and have deep skills in secure telecommunications for public and governmental organisations and emergency services.

In the framework of ENOSYS, Thales Communications will provide requirements and feedback on the tools developed by the partners. These tools will be evaluated on a HW/SW single-chip image compression test-case.

Thales Communications will be one of the industrial technology “users” of this project providing inputs and feedback to the partners.

Thales Communications is interested in the methodology, design process and tools which will be defined/developed within ENOSYS in order to increase the productivity for FPGA/SoC development and also try to find common approach with SW.

INTRACOM TELECOM is a leading developer and producer of telecommunication systems as well as provider of integrated solutions and professional services to fixed and mobile operators in the EEMEA region.


INTRACOM TELECOM will contribute to ENOSYS its long experience in state-of-the-art telecom embedded systems development and will thus provide valuable guidance on the tool development process and an industry-grade evaluation of the project outcomes.


In the context of ENOSYS, INTRACOM TELECOM will provide application-driven user requirements and feedback on the technology development work performed by the tool partners and lead the application test cases development and validation work. INTRACOM TELECOM will evaluate the tools developed within ENOSYS on an experimental prototype of an IEEE 802.16m Base Station for 4G broadband wireless communications.


INTRACOM TELECOM is highly interested in the technology that will emerge from ENOSYS and intends to adopt significant part of the generated tools and methodology in the company’s product development flow.
