Home Project Description Consortium OFFIS e.V. (OFFIS, Germany)


OFFIS, the “Oldenburger Forschungs- und Entwicklungsinstitut für Informatik-Werkzeuge und Systeme”, is a non-profit partly state funded research institute associated with the University of Oldenburg in Germany. OFFIS has currently some 200 employees including more than 100 full time scientists. The focus of the current research is on optimization of power, yield, and reliability of embedded systems, system-level design methodology, automation and industry driven low power design training.

In COMPLEX, two research groups of OFFIS “Energy Efficiency in ICT” and “Hardware/Software Design Methodology”, both embedded in the technology cluster “HW/SW Design Methodology”, will contribute to WP2, i.e. power models for TLM communication IPs, source code annotation for efficient performance and power modelling, and virtual system generation with TLM2 interface synthesis. In WP3 OFFIS will contribute to custom hardware optimizations, regarding energy efficiency and dynamic power management techniques. Resulting prototype tools will be evaluated on industrial test cases as part of WP4. OFFIS furthermore will contribute to the training, standardisation and dissemination activities in WP5. As the project co-ordinator OFFIS is also responsible for all management activities carried out in WP6.

OFFIS has a successful track record of participating in and managing many European projects, several of which focussed on low power and system level design methodology, namely ANDRES: ANalysis and Design of run-time REconfigurable, heterogeneous Systems, 2006-2009.
