COMPLEX - Co-design and power management in platform-based design space exploration

The main objective of the COMPLEX project is to increase the competitiveness of the European semiconductor, system integrator and EDA industry by addressing the problem of platform-based design space exploration under consideration of power and performance constraints early in the design process. High performance usually causes high power consumption. A main challenge in today’s embedded system design is to find the perfect balance between performance and power. This balance can not be found efficiently and at high quality, because until now no generic framework for accurately and jointly estimating performance and power consumption starting at the algorithmic level is available. This can only be achieved in cooperation on a European level, taking into account European platform providers, system developers/integrators, EDA companies, Universities and research institutes from both, the HW and the embedded SW world.
