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: Molecular switch will facilitate the development of pioneering electro-optical devices

A research team led by physicists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has developed molecular nanoswitches that can be toggled between two structurally different states using an applied voltage. They can serve as the basis for a pioneering class of devices that could replace silicon-based components with organic molecules.

The development of new electronic technologies drives the incessant reduction of functional component sizes. In the context of an international collaborative...

Im Focus: LZH showcases laser material processing of tomorrow at the LASYS 2018

At the LASYS 2018, from June 5th to 7th, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will be showcasing processes for the laser material processing of tomorrow in hall 4 at stand 4E75. With blown bomb shells the LZH will present first results of a research project on civil security.

At this year's LASYS, the LZH will exhibit light-based processes such as cutting, welding, ablation and structuring as well as additive manufacturing for...

Im Focus: Self-illuminating pixels for a new display generation

There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?

At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...
