REDS Institute: Applied Research and Development

The Reconfigurable & Embedded Digital Systems (REDS) institute, which is attached to the Department of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) of the HEIG-VD, has strong R&D expertise in high-performance embedded systems.


The activities of the Institute rely on three strategical axes:

In these domains, the Institute has achieved numerous marking realizations based on industrial contracts, and national or European projects.
The following examples can be quoted for 2012:
  • The development of a 24-layers board including 32 high-speed 10 Gigabits/s serial lines connected to optical transceivers
  • A multi-OS virtualization platform
  • A reconfigurable radio communication system
  • A multi-sensor platform for geological monitoring
  • A reconfigurable embedded platform for training and research

Seminar at REDS Institute

by Elena Mata | Jul 22, 2014
"10Giga high speed link with FPGA: from physical line to Ethernet protocol"
High speed serial links are the technological answer to today's society needs for ever increasing amounts of data to transmit and to process.

The REDS Institute invites you to his seminar on the topic "10Giga high speed links with FPGA"
Date: Thursday 4th September from 9:00 to 17:00
Location: HEIG-VD, Yverdon-les-Bains
The attached leaflet will give you all the necessary information on this technical seminar. During this one-day event we will present you the technical issues and challenges related to the design and implementation of high speed links in your FPGA projects based on Altera or Xilinx devices.
