From Center for Embedded Systems
There's never been a more competitive time in U.S. industrial history... There's really only one way to compete in this new era - that's to have a close cooperation between research and development, training of students and transferring those students and that research and development into the industrial arena. That’s what the Consortium for Embedded Systems is all about.
Chairman of the Board and former CEO
Who We Are. The Center for Embedded Systems (CES) was established in 2001 as an industry/university partnership to develop a globally-recognized center for embedded computing system technologies. In March 2009, CES achieved the designation of National Science Foundation Industry/University Cooperative Research Center, one of more than 50 centers, each covering different areas of technology.
Our Mission. The Center's purpose is to advance the field of embedded systems in algorithms, applications, and architectures to new levels through cooperative research agreements between industry, academia, and government.
Why? Every electronic device - from cell phone to tablet computer to jet plane - uses advanced computer technology "embedded" within it. The Center brings together great companies and great minds to solve real-world computing problems, starting with research in the areas of: power, energy and thermal-aware design; robust IC and system design; software design for embedded systems; advanced embedded processor architectures; networked and distributed embedded systems; and testing, fault tolerance and dependability.
