Smart digital systems
CEA Tech institute Leti is developing software and systems engineering tools and methods to design more and more complex systems that to a greater and greater extent include embedded software. The institute’s R&D focuses on two key areas: describing and producing systems using model engineering; and using formal techniques to test, verify, and validate systems and software.
The Papyrus model-driven engineering (MDE) platform is used to describe both the need and the response and to build system-generation solutions. The Frama-C validation engineering platform delivers user-oriented integration of the most advanced formal techniques. The platform is used to verify software quality, safety, and security to the standards required by the target use.
Leti, a CEA Tech institute, will provide access to its Mentor Veloce emulator to European chip manufacturers, who will benefit from direct access to the latest technology and be able to test their designs at the early stages, shortening time to market.
EU H2020 project RobMoSys will give robotics software development a boost by creating a shared design method and environment.
Leti, a CEA Tech institute, announced that it embedded its SigmaFusion algorithms into Infineon hardware approved for the automotive industry. The advance, unveiled at the ITS conference in June 2017, is a world-first that will also pave the way for opportunities in other industries.
Leti and Liten, both CEA Tech institutes, developed the electronics and algorithms required to measure the internal temperature of a battery cell by estimating electrical impedance. The purpose of the solution is to detect the early signs of thermal runaway in embedded lithium-ion batteries.
Bag-Era has developed an application that interconnects the components of complex industrial and service systems to ensure that these systems are coherent and robust.
How to collaborate with CEA Tech teams ?
CEA is a French government-funded technological research organisation in four main areas: low-carbon energies, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies. A prominent player in the European Research Area, it is involved in setting up collaborative projects with many partners around the world.
