Welcome to the Computer Architecture for Embedded Systems (CAES) group of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science of the University of Twente in the Netherlands.

QBayLogic: a new spin-off company of the CAES group

In autumn 2016 the spin-off company QBayLogic started its services in FPGA design, based on the compiler CλaSH that translates mathematical specifications of FPGA architectures into a traditional hardware description language. The compiler CλaSh is developed by of the CAES-group, over a period of eight years, resulting in many publications and several PhD theses. We are proud that this period of fruitful rearch resulted in a spin-off company to transfer the developed techniques to the market.

Robert de Groote receives PhD degree 'cum laude'

On Friday the 5th of February 2016, PhD candidate Robert de Groote successfully defended his PhD thesis, entitled "On the Analysis of Synchronous Dataflow Graphs - a system-theoretic perspective". Robert was awarded a PhD degree with honours ('cum laude'). Robert continues his work in the CAES group as a postdoctoral researcher, on the project POLCA, where he applies synchronous dataflow to the modelling of regular computational structures, and their mapping onto heterogeneous hardware architectures.
