Sceptre is a minalogic project, supported by the Pole de Competitivite Minalogic. Global competitiveness cluster Minalogic fosters research-led innovation in intelligent miniaturized products and solutions for industry. Located in Grenoble, France, the cluster channels in a single physical location a range of highly-specialized skills and resources from knowledge creation to the development and production of intelligent miniaturized services for industry. Sceptre main objective is to provide SoC implementation techniques, using novel approaches originating from both multiprocessor programming and reconfigurable processors. The application domain is distributed multimedia code optimization.
Our work is focused on tools and methods to develop embedded systems. The main working directions are software and hardware integration, scalable and configurable architectures, real time constraints, heterogeneous multiprocessing, and load-balancing.
