Architectural Modeling of Embedded Systems – Challenges and Opportunities

Speaker Dr. Achim Rettberg
Carl von Osseitzky University Oldenburg
CECS Host Professor Rainer Doemer
Location Engineering Hall 3216
Date & Time June 12, 2012
Colloquium begins at 2:00PM 
Abstract Today embedded system design has to cover the increasing complexity and has to fulfil requirements. With traditional design methods the time-to-market is to long. New design methods as model-based design offers the reduction of product development time, but it requires a different development process. This talk will give an overview of model-based design and show the complexity designers have to cope with. The idea to realize the system based on a virtual platform will also be covered in the talk. The reference technology platform (RTP) proposed and developed at OFFIS Institute (Oldenburg, Germany) will be presented. The RTP gives the designer an excellent overview of the system and allows requirement coverage and analysis.

Achim Rettberg

ACHIM RETTBERG was born in Einbeck, Germany. He received his M.S. (Dipl.-Inform.) in computer science and economics in 1997 and his Ph. D. (Dr. rer. nat.) degree in 2006 from the University of Paderborn, Germany, where he studied computer science and economics. From 1992 until 1997 he was employed as a working student for the University of Paderborn and C-LAB. From 1997 until 2000 he worked at C-LAB in industrial projects together with dSPACE and Siemens. From 2001 until 2006 he worked as a Ph.D. student and researcher for the C-LAB in the field of embedded system design. Afterwards he worked from 2007 until 2008 as Post-Doc at C-LAB and managed EU-Projects. In 2008 he became professor of complex integrated systems/embedded systems at the Computer Science department at Carl von Ossietzky University Oldenburg. Prof. Rettberg is founder and General Chair of the International Embedded Systems Symposium (IESS). Furthermore, he is active in several conference/workshop committees and reviewers for journals. Prof. Rettberg is author and co-author of several scientific books, journal articles and conference papers. His general research interests are model-based design, real-time systems and HW/SW architectures. He is chairman of the IFIP working group 10.2 for embedded systems.
