Handling electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) of generated printed circuit boards (PCBs) or field programmable gate array (FPGA) logic requires sophisticated research on novel approaches for future embedded automotive and IoT systems. An interesting topic results from the fact that different approaches in FPGA floor planning as well as PCB layouting yield in different EMC characteristics. The main objective is to analyze how the implementation and compilation of software and logic will impact the electromagnetic emissions and interferences of the electronic control units. Such analyses are requested by various certification standards (e.g., CISPR-25, ISO 11452) but hardly conducted by the industry in real systems.
Thesis will be co-supervised by the Institute of Electronics.
