PhD Studentships in Embedded Systems using FPGAs for Image and Signal
Processing Applications

Queen's University of Belfast
The Queen's University of Belfast, School of Computer Science invites
applications for two PhD studentships in Embedded Systems using Field
Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) for Image and Signal processing
applications. The two scholarships are funded by EPSRC. The main aims
of the two projects are to address the problem of processing large
matrices, transforms and decompositions and to extend the range of
available matrix algorithms in the existing RCMAT library.  The main
objectives are:
1. Implementing scalable, parameterisable and efficient architectures
for matrix algorithms such as 2D-transforms based on matrix-vector
multiplication, QR factorisation, SVD and LU decomposition for signal
and image processing applications;
2.  Designing and implementing a scalable and parameterisable
partitioning engine to address the problem of processing large
matrices, transforms and decompositions; and
3.  Rapid estimation of area and speed to support experimentation with
different design parameters and design methodologies to allow the user
to investigate the best area/speed trade-offs.
Candidates should normally have, or be expected to obtain, a first or
upper second class honours degree in Computer Science, Electronics or
Electrical Engineering or have a first or upper second class honours
degree in a relevant science subject with a good knowledge of computer
hardware. Candidates should have good software skills.  Expertise in
C++, VHDL or Handel C is desirable.
The studentship is available for three years starting from 01/10/02
and provides a maintenance grant of 8,200 for each year of the
Scholarship. The Scholarship also covers tuition fees for home and EU
students.  For further information on the project, see Dr Abbes
Amira's web site http://www.*-*-*.com/ ~a.amira/, or contact Dr A.


Closing date for applications is Friday 28th June 2002.
