VTT and telecom companies developed new tools for electronic systems design

21.11.2003


Better competitive ability for new products



VTT, Nokia, Ericsson and several other telecom companies in central and southern Europe have worked together in the EU IST-programme research project SYDIC-Telecom to specify a conceptual model for electronic systems design, and have defined the relevant concepts in a new glossary. They have further defined means for companies to better reuse work done once in product design. Thus the European companies in the field will be able to create new competitive edge, notably in new telecom products, such as multimedia equipment and mobile phones.

The most recent integrated circuit technologies make it possible to combine increasingly versatile functions in electronics products. VTT was also involved in work that developed methods for the evaluation of systems design languages, and analysed reuse of design work. These means allow companies to make better use of the extremely rapid technological development.


For competing European companies improving systems design in electronics is a common concern. However, due to inadequate design methods and tools it has been difficult to exploit the most recent technology. Customers and subcontractors in the telecom field have moreover lacked common concepts, and therefore the common definition of new products has been troublesome.

Nokia Research Center was involved in the project. Principal scientist Klaus Kronlöf says that the functional design of a telecom product has traditionally been accomplished based on the constraints of the implementation, thus changing the implementation technology means redesigning from scratch. According to Klaus Kronlöf the results obtained with VTT will promote the companies’ ability to combine new technologies with versatile functions of novel products. The methods developed will allow the company to undertake more effective co-operation than before with subcontractors.

The results of development work are described comprehensively in the publication: Cavalloro, P, Gendarme C, Kronlöf K, Mermet J.P, van Sas J, Tiensyrjä K, Voros N.S; System Level Design Model with Reuse of System IP. ISBN 1-4020-7594-4.

Im Focus: Neutron star merger directly observed for the first time

University of Maryland researchers contribute to historic detection of gravitational waves and light created by event

On August 17, 2017, at 12:41:04 UTC, scientists made the first direct observation of a merger between two neutron stars--the dense, collapsed cores that remain...

Im Focus: Breaking: the first light from two neutron stars merging

Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.

Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....

Im Focus: Smart sensors for efficient processes

Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).

When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...

Im Focus: Cold molecules on collision course

Using a new cooling technique MPQ scientists succeed at observing collisions in a dense beam of cold and slow dipolar molecules.

How do chemical reactions proceed at extremely low temperatures? The answer requires the investigation of molecular samples that are cold, dense, and slow at...

Im Focus: Shrinking the proton again!

Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, using high precision laser spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen, confirm the surprisingly small value of the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen.

It was one of the breakthroughs of the year 2010: Laser spectroscopy of muonic hydrogen resulted in a value for the proton charge radius that was significantly...
