I have created the Analog IC&Tools group within the CIAN Team in the SoC department of LIP6 laboratory previously known as CAIRO, and now integrated in the FOS EDA Coriolis project. This project is meant to be the cornerstone of the Free and Open Source Hardware (FOSHW) concept.

The CIAN Team has regular cooperation with Professor Naohiko Shimizu, from Tokai University, Japan, on the Coriolis project. His CV may be downloaded here .

In LIP6, I am a member of 2 research axes:

  • Architecture, Systems and Network (ASN)
  • Safety, Security, and Reliability (SSR)

Since 2010, I am a member of the AMS Working Group of Accellera Systems Initiative and a contributer to the standardization the AMS extensions of SystemC. In January 2020, the SystemC Analog/Mixed-signal (AMS) Working Group has released its user guide for those who would like to use SystemC AMS extensions for their system-level design and verification work. It is meant as an introductory guide for electronic system-level engineers and architects; it explains the modeling fundamentals and gives examples on how to start with AMS system-level design at higher levels of abstraction. For more information on SystemC AMS and to download the new user guide, visit the SystemC AMS Working Group page.

I am currently involved in European projects:

  • Eureka/PENTA/HADES: Hierarchy-Aware and secure embedded test infrastructure for Dependability and performance Enhancement of integrated Systems (2017-2021)
  • Echopen: Designing an Open Source and Low-Cost Echo-Stethoscope

and French ones:

  • ANR/EDITSoC: Diagnostic Electrique des Systèmes-sur-Puce dédiés aux Applications IoT pour le Secteur Automobile (2018-2021)
  • RAPID FLEXyRADIO: FLot de conception Et composants innovants dédiés à l’IoT et auX systèmes RADIOcom (2017-2022)

I have contributed to several European research projects :
