CTS Description

CTS has currently 50 fully integrated members (with PhD degrees), 6 collaborators (also holding a PhD) and over 100 PhD Students.

CTS is organized according to three main thematic research lines, covering a fully complementary research platform in computer and electrical engineering.

The thematic research line A is fundamentally 'hardware-oriented' since it focuses on micro and nano-electronics (circuit and system design and technology processes), signal processing for biomedical and telecommunication applications and embedded systems. The mission of this is mainly focused on the design low-power SoC (analog, digital and mixed-signal) in advanced CMOS and FPGA technologies oriented to the wireless/wireline communications, consumer-electronics and biomedical industries. The multidisciplinary interests of the different groups make possible the development of the devices and materials, as embedded systems, using signal processing algorithms and communication protocols. These are key aspects of modern ultra-low power, low area and low cost systems used, for example, in modern transceivers applied to wireless sensor and actuator networks.

The thematic research line B is devoted to the application of electronics and electrical sciences for enhancement of industrial/manufacturing processes (including robotics) and energy efficiency. This line of research is concerned with the latest developments in intelligent and computer control systems, modeling and control of distributed systems, industrial agents, electrical machines-and-drives, power electronics, robotics, factory automation, flexible manufacturing, building automation, power quality, renewable energies, energy efficiency, and the sustainable development of these technologies.

The thematic research line C is devoted to computer engineering, spanning from collaborative networks, distributed industrial systems, interoperability and decision-based systems. The research plan for this line is to use a multi-disciplinary approach, combining knowledge, technologies, methods and models from the three topics to contribute to advances in computer engineering related with the internet-of-things (IoT).
