  • Hardware Synthesis from SCCharts to FPGA [possibly also Master Topic](Bachelor/Master)
    Use the circuit-based code generation to produce code for FPGAs
  • Automatic documentation generation [possibly also Master Topic]
    Develop an automatic SCCharts documentation system
  • Optimizations for the SCCharts compiler [possibly also Master Topic]Optimizations for the SCCharts compiler (Bachelor/Master)
    Profile the actual SCCharts compiler and apply optimizations
  • Optimizations of the SCCharts transformations (Bachelor/Master)
    Profile the actual SCCharts compiler transformation and apply optimizations
  • Multi-core SCCharts compiler [possibly also Master Topic]
    Implement the possibility to use more than one core to compile large SCCharts
  • Adding dataflow to SCCharts [possibly also Master Topic]
    Add dataflow to SCCharts 

  • Detecting tick boundaries in SCCharts (Master/Bachelor)

  • Efficient data dependency analyses in SCCharts (Master/Bachelor)
    Implement data dependency analyses for SCCharts
  • KIELER evaluation environment for synchronous languages (Master/Bachelor)
    Develop a reliable evaluation environment to compare common synchronous languages (i.e. Esterel/SyncCharts & SCCharts)
  • Raceyard evaluation (Master/Bachelor)
    Evaluate the possibility for the use of SCCharts in the Raceyard context and pave the way for future experiments

    Implement the SyncCharts priority-based compilation approach into the SCCharts compiler chain.
  • From Esterel to SCL (Master) [work in progress, Karsten Rathlev]
    Implement transformations that translate Esterel programs to SCL 
  • Curing Schizophrenia in SCCharts (Master)
    Develop new synchronizer to handle schizophrenia properly (e.g. depth join).
  • Railway 4.0 (Master) [work in progress, Nis Wechselberg]
    Design a new and modern hardware controlling (Version 4) for the railway installation.

PRETSY / PRETSY2

Advisors: Insa Fuhrmann., Steven Smyth

  • Real-time extensions for SCCharts [possibly also Master Topic] (Bachelor/Master)
    Make the timing instructions delay_until und exception_on_expire of the FlexPRET processor available in SCCharts.

    Add dataflow to SCCharts 

  • Multithreaded/Multicore execution of SCCharts (Master/Bachelor)
    Evaluate possibilities to preserve parallelism in SCCharts, implement mapping for (fine grained) multithreading and multicore 
    based on the FlexPRET processor.

Miscellaneous Topics

Advisors: to be determined.

  • Developing an Info Screen (Bachelor)
    Info screens are screens that present data in ways that can be easily understood. This includes static data (project description graphics, members of a team, ...) as well as dynamically aggregated data (bug statistics, automatic build overviews, ...). This topic is about developing such an info screen for our group and making it easily configurable.
