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. 

Papers accepted at IESS 2015

Congrats to alumni ESL members: Ran Hao, Kasra MoazzamiMajid Sabbagh and the current members Hamed Tabkhi, Smit Patel and Nasibeh Teimouri on their accepted papers including Taming the Memory Demand Complexity of Adaptive Vision Algorithms [1], Modeling and Analysis of SLDL-captured NoC Abstractions [2] and Rapid, High-Level Performance Estimation for DSE using Calibrated Weight Tables [3] at IESS 2015.

Journal accepted at Springer Journal of Signal Processing and Systems 2015

Congrats to Hamed Tabkhi on his accepted journal [1] at the Springer journal of Signal Processing and System. This article expands the concept of Function-Level Processors (FLPs) as a novel processor class to fill the gap between ILPs and dedicated HWACCs. FLPs are comprised of configurable Function Blocks (FBs) implementing selected functions which are then interconnected via programmable point-to-point connections constructing an extensible/configurable macro data-path. The journal is related to the project "Novel Architecture for Streaming Applications".
