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: Quantum gas turns supersolid

Researchers led by Francesca Ferlaino from the University of Innsbruck and the Austrian Academy of Sciences report in Physical Review X on the observation of supersolid behavior in dipolar quantum gases of erbium and dysprosium. In the dysprosium gas these properties are unprecedentedly long-lived. This sets the stage for future investigations into the nature of this exotic phase of matter.

Supersolidity is a paradoxical state where the matter is both crystallized and superfluid. Predicted 50 years ago, such a counter-intuitive phase, featuring...

Im Focus: Explosion on Jupiter-sized star 10 times more powerful than ever seen on our sun

A stellar flare 10 times more powerful than anything seen on our sun has burst from an ultracool star almost the same size as Jupiter

  • Coolest and smallest star to produce a superflare found
  • Star is a tenth of the radius of our Sun
  • Researchers led by University of Warwick could only see...

Im Focus: Quantum simulation more stable than expected

A localization phenomenon boosts the accuracy of solving quantum many-body problems with quantum computers which are otherwise challenging for conventional computers. This brings such digital quantum simulation within reach on quantum devices available today.

Quantum computers promise to solve certain computational problems exponentially faster than any classical machine. “A particularly promising application is the...

Im Focus: A long-distance relationship in femtoseconds

Physicists observe how electron-hole pairs drift apart at ultrafast speed, but still remain strongly bound.

Modern electronics relies on ultrafast charge motion on ever shorter length scales. Physicists from Regensburg and Gothenburg have now succeeded in resolving a...
