Welcome to the home page of the Embedded Systems Laboratory(ESL) at Northeastern University. The ESL research group was established by Professor Gunar Schirner in 2009. The lab is located at 140 The Fenway, Boston, MA. The members are affiliated with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Northeastern University.

The group has three main research thrusts: (1) System-Level Design Automation, (2) Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) Design, and (3) Novel Architectures Solutions for Embedded Vision. Find more about our exciting research here.

To be more inclusive, our laboratory can also be referred to as ESL3 since the acronym ESL appears three times: 1) Embedded Systems Laboratory - the name of the laboratory; 2) Electronic System Level design automation - our research focus; and 3) Englishas a Second Language - the diverse cultures and languages of our group members. 

Journal accepted at IEEE CALs 2015

Congrats to Chulian Zhang and Hamed Tabkhi on his accepted journal [1] at the IEEE journals of Computer Architecture Letters . The aim of this article is to manage inter-warp divergence to hide the memory access latency and minimize the resource conflicts and temporal under-utilization in compute units allowing GPUs to achieve their peak throughput. The journal is related to the project "Computer Vision on GPU". Read more about this project here.

Journal accepted at Elsevier Journal of Microprocessors and Microsystems 2015

Congrats to Hamed Tabkhi on his accepted journal [1]  in the Elsevier Journal of Microprocessors and Microsystems . This article proposes Conceptual Abstraction Levels (CALs) which addresses early design decisions separately and iteratively at higher levels of abstraction enabling an efficient solution space exploration. The journal is related to the project "System-Level Design Principles for Market-oriented SoC".
