The goal of this priority program is to develop new methods and architectures at system level as to eliminate the effects associated when migrating to new technology nodes like malfunctioning, performance degradation, and increased power consumption. The five columns of research are:

  • Technology Abstraction
  • Dependable Hardware Architectures
  • Dependable Embedded Software
  • Design Methods
  • Operation, Observation, Adaptation

Abstraction of Device Level Characteristics

The SPP 1500 Mini-Workshop on Abstraction of Device Level Characteristics takes place on March 7th in Munich.

The topic of this workshop is the handling of physical low-level effects as well as their abstraction and propagation to the architecture level.

Subject of discussions will also be which information can be made available from lower levels and how this can be integrated in higher abstraction levels.
