System Design

System Design
The design of embedded systems is crucial in fields linked to electronics. Whether it is a matter of developing an ASIC, a multi-core chip, an automated system or a sensor network , design tools and methods are essential to guarantee the final performance of the product. The test and validation stages in particular represent more than 60% of the whole design process for an electronic system.
From the design of solid languages to the validation of systems under real-life conditions, the teams of the Carnot Institute can offer you their skills in designing more efficient, more cost-effective, and more reliable systems.

Moving Towards Embedded Circuits and Applications Resistant to Radiation

Many bugs in embedded systems are caused by environment fluctuations (temperature, pressure, EM field, etc.). In severe conditions (high altitude, space, nuclear sites etc.), high energy particles, particularly neutrons, are a major cause of errors, which can lead to transitional errors ("soft errors"), permanent failures or even the loss of components. Evaluation of...


Verification of Properties for Embedded Systems


From large public applications (transport, multimedia, telecoms) to critical applications (aerospace, aeronautics), embedded systems integrate an infinitely increasing number of functionalities. In order to guarantee the performance of these systems – real-time, safety/security, consumption, etc. – complex verifications are required at each stage of development from the initial...

Multicom: User-centric Experimentation platform

The Multicom User-centric Experimentation Platform is a technology platform geared up to analyse and record the live observation of users and their behaviour


  • The very flexible and modular architecture allows the platform to adapt to a diverse range of experimentation and to support a wide variety of fields including: home automation, culture, smart environments, remote...

Multicom : Oculometry

Muticom’s eye tracking technology enables the analysis of the user’s eye movement in real-time, thus reflecting the individual’s cognitive processes. The succession of jerks and “stares” result in the identification of the cognitive data capture sequence and the order in which the subject processes it.


  • Understand user navigation processes
  • Provide...

Osiris on Chip

Embedded-systems designed for the decision making and real-time control sectors


The teams at LSI are currently working on the modelling and representation of knowledge and data. As part of their work, the teams have developed an object-oriented system on an FPGA chip for the representation and management of data and knowledge (SGBD-BC). Named  OSIRIS on Chip, this system is a tool that is capable of reproducing the cognitive...
