Chip design in Denmark

Talk by Martin Schoeberl
Chip design education in Denmark has flourished to meet the growing demand for skilled professionals in the semiconductor industry. The Technical University of Denmark (DTU) offers a comprehensive programs in electrical engineering and computer science. Beginning in fall 2023 DTU will offer a new Bachelor's eduction in computer engineering, including a specialization in chip design. DTU also actively participates on EU and national research projects in chip design. These activities ensures that chip design education in Denmark remains cutting-edge and prepares students for the evolving needs of the industry. The talk will present the research and teaching activities at DTU in the area of chip design.

Creating an autonomous system necessitates careful component selection and processing unit integration to guarantee the seamless fulfillment of real-time application requirements. This session will introduce an open-source hardware-software architecture designed for the autonomous navigation of drones in proximity to powerlines.  At its core, this architecture harnesses the power of a state-of-the-art MPSoC chip, leveraging its cutting-edge capabilities to accelerate AI algorithms via FPGA hardware acceleration. This acceleration is seamlessly interfaced through ROS2, establishing a smooth connection between the MPSoC's CPU and the system's remaining sensors and actuator components. Examples will be showcased to provide practical insights into the architecture's effectiveness, demonstrating its validation within the context of the H2020 Drones4Safety and Horizon Europe SPADE project's real-world use cases.

Computing on edge is important, but becomes extremely important when it comes to the implants as one may face many challenges including the size, power consumption, connectivity, etc. in the design of such devices.  In this talk, I will talk about our journey from designing low-power chips powered wirelessly with minimum energy consumption, to involving brain/inspired computing for achieving batteryless implants that can revolutionize the future. One can imagine a brain-inspired chip being integrated better than ever with biological neural networks to strengthen cognitive abilities or a deep implant used for treating different neurological disorders learning from the brain and communicating with the brain to heal the brain.
