Embedded-Computing Systems

Defined as an autonomous system, often in real time, specialising in a specific task and with limited resources, an embedded IT system is built on three main pillars:

  • the hardware
  • the software and programming
  • signal processing and communication

We employ our expertise to make measurement and control systems stand-alone, to improve the efficiency of industrial processes and to develop intelligent medical systems.


  • Hardware development: architectural design and hardware development of embedded systems based on microcontrollers and/or programmable software.
  • Embedded software: high-performance embedded system programming using Systems-on-a-Chip and real-time embedded operating systems.
  • Low power embedded systems: development of low power autonomous embedded systems drawing on energy harvesting principles.
  • Communicating systems: creation of small embedded systems incorporating communication technologies, wired or wireless, focused on the notions of safety and reliability (Internet of Things).
  • Signal processing: adaptation of signal processing algorithms in embedded systems for applications such as sound and/or image processing (smart camera).
