  • Embedded Systems Architectures for Signalprocessing

The chair of „Embedded Systems Architectures for Signalprocessing“ has been established as a joint appointment of the University of Potsdam and the Fraunhofer Institute for Telecommunications, Heinrich Hertz Institute, Berlin / Germany. The research activities are focused on three main areas Image- and Videoprocessing, Architectures and HW/SW Co-Design Methodologies.

Chairholder is Prof. Dr.-Ing. Benno Stabernack.



Summer Vacation

We wish all students, partners and friends of the chair happy summer holidays!

We're back on August 17.

Welcome !

We welcome our new group member Tim Jacquemot at the chair of "Embedded Systems Architectures for Signal Processing". He will work in the field of algorithmic complexity of video signal processing.

Congratulations !

Our former Group Member Jens Brandenburg completed his dissertation entitled „Generische Analysemethoden für den Systementwurf heterogener eingebetteter Mehrkernsysteme“ ("Generic Analysis Methods for the Design of Heterogeneous Embedded Multi-Core Systems") at the Friedrich-Alexander-University (FAU) Erlangen-Nuremberg with magna cum laude.

The examination board chaired by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Felix Freiling (FAU Erlangen-Nuremberg) consisted of the first expert Prof. Dr.-Dietmar Fey (FAU Erlangen-Nuremberg), the second expert Prof. Dr.-Ing. Benno Stabernack (University of Potsdam/Fraunhofer HHI) and the third examiner Prof. Dr.-Ing. André Kaup (FAU Erlangen-Nuremberg).

Jens Brandenburg took up his work at Fraunhofer HHI in 2006 as a research associate in the Embedded Systems research group. He is now active in the Image and Video Coding group.

Project start research project  "Next Generation Video Coding"

Dec. 1st  2017 the project "Next Generation Video Coding" started at the department.

With the increase in coding efficiency of the latest video coding methods, there is also a drastic increase in the complexity of the algorithms used and thus also in the required computational requirements.

The project is dedicated to the analysis, optimization and design of video coding techniques with a focus on cost-effective hardware implementations.

Within the next days, we will publish an official job offer for a research position in this project.
