Joint Algorithm/Architecture Design of Communication Systems
(Required for Computer Systems Area Graduate Students)
LESTER, Research Center
Universite de Bretagne Sud
When: Wednesday, Nov. 1, 2006, at 4:00 pm
Where: Marston 132
In this talk, we will discuss the concept of joint algorithms and
architectures in the domain of communication systems.
In particular, we will insist on how hardware constraints can be solved
by modifying the algorithm. Two examples will illustrate this
methodology, one about synchronization with binary correlator, the other
about the high speed turbo-decoder domain.
Emmanuel Boutillon received the Engineering Diploma from the Ecole Nationale
Superieure des Telecommunications (ENST), Paris, France in 1990. In
1991, he worked as an assistant professor in the Ecole Multinationale
Superieure des Telecommunications in Africa (Dakar). In 1992, he joined
ENST as a research engineer where he conducted research in the field of
VLSI for digital communications. While working as an engineer, he
obtained his Ph.D in 1995 from ENST. In 1998, he spent a sabbatical year
at the University of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Since 2000, he has been a
Professor at the University of South Britany, Lorient, France and since
2005, he is the head of the LESTER laboratory. His current research
interests are on the interactions between algorithm and architecture in
the field of wireless communications.
