De-RISC Project gets presented at HIPEAC 2022

Jun 22, 2022

The HiPEAC conference is the premier European forum for experts in computer architecture, programming models, compilers and operating systems for embedded and general-purpose systems.

This last week, De-RISC representatives participated in the 17th HiPEAC conference which took place in Budapest, Hungary. From Monday 20 June to Wednesday 22 June, over 370 participants attended this event which represents an unmissable opportunity for any European tech company.

During HIPEAC Conference, attendants from all over the world were able to attend to several different workshops and tutorials in areas of focus and integration including safety-critical dependencies, cybersecurity, energy efficiency, and machine learning. Additionally, special sessions, a large poster display, networking opportunities, and an industrial exhibition run in parallel with the conference in order to create an outstanding and fruitful opportunity for participants.

During those three days, several distinguished sessions were held and De-RISC consortium was able to cover the whole spectrum of De-RISCin a full-day workshop in which every partner explained their role and progress on the project.

The first session of the workshop was given by Jimmy Le Rhun, research engineer at Thales Research & Technology, who introduced the application of hardware and software solutions to the challenges of critical systems. Antonio García-Vilanova, Software Engineer at fentISS, followed the workshop with a technology deep dive focused on XtratuM hypervisor over De-RISC NOEL-V SoC. After that, Stefano Ribes and Fabio Malatesta, Hardware Engineers at Cobham Gaisler, explained the De-RISC NOEL-V System-on-Chip design and, straightaway, Sergi Alcaide and Francisco Bas, Research Engineers at Barcelona Supercomputing Center, introduced how they deal with timing interference in the De-RISC platform. Additionally, the consortium was able to show the first De-RISC platform demonstration during a session in which the audience was totally captive with the use cases displayed. Finally, the workshop concluded with the invited talk of Martin Rönnbäck, Hardware Section Head at Cobham Gaisler, and Mehrzad Nejat, Software Development, Simulation, and Data Analysis Researcher at Chalmers University of Technology with a session focused on the associated projects beyond De-RISC.

The interest of attendees in the whole workshop was the best symptom of success of this H2020 among the scientific and industrial audience. We are glad of having taken part of this conference and to have shown De-RISC’s potential among several experts who appreciated the great value of the project. 

Congratulations to the whole team on delivering such a great output!
