TYPE OF CONTRACTTemporary
OFFER STARTING DATE01/09/2021
Building on initial results on the hardware implementation of new decoding algorithms for Turbo decoding, the ANR funded JCJC project “TurboLEAP”, which is set to start 01.03.2021 and led by Stefan Weithoffer, will investigate the design of ultra-high throughput hardware architectures for the decoding of Turbo codes, focusing mainly on hardware design aspects. Within TurboLEAP, the PhD candidate is expected to play a significant role in the original approach applied traditionally by the members of the Mathematical and Electrical Engineering (MEE) department of IMT Atlantique consisting of a close interaction between Silicon and Algorithm design. Contrary to classical procedures, in this approach, algorithms are thought and derived from the start to consider at equal footing the hardware implementation and performance related constraints. Indeed, the candidate is expected to explore the full potential of fully pipelined iteration unrolled Turbo decoder hardware architectures. Throughputs of more than 1 Tb/s for large frame sizes with several thousands of information bits are targeted. Furthermore, decoder hardware architectures for Spatially coupled Turbo codes shall be investigated.
Funding category: Financement public/privé
PHD Country: France
