EF-FECtive is a research project funded by the ANR and hosted at IMT Atlantique. The project will last for three years, from January 2018 to December 2021. Elsa Dupraz, François Leduc-Primeau, and Frederic Guilloud are the main investigators of the project.
The objective of the project is to design energy-efficient LDPC codes and decoders. This will be achieved through contributions to both communication theory and VLSI system design, with the ultimate objective of demonstrating a decoder ASIC that can tolerate circuit faults while operating in the energy-efficient near-threshold regime.
