Abstract:
Nowadays design projects require fast time to market and solid verification throughout the entire design flow. Many concept have been tried to raise the level of abstraction during the design phase, where model-based design is the most promising one. In this thesis a model-based approach will be extended to allow automatic generation of an assertion interface for IPs corresponding to the In neon Essence metamodel. Furthermore an own datamodel will be modeled to capture the specific needs for a general silicon-on-debug assertion Interface and the realworld work with it.
This thesis was developed as a part of WP 1 of the ESCI Open SoC Design Platform for Reuse and Integration of IPs (SPRINT) project.

Abstract:
Für die Umsetzung einfacher, aber auch komplexer Systeme wird meist nur ein Digitalchip benötigt, weshalb dieses Design „System on a Chip“ (SoC) genannt wird. Alle benötigten Komponenten wie z.B. Speicher, I/O, ALU’s und ROM sind auf diesem einen Chip integriert. Um die daraus folgende Komplexität, die mit steigender Integrationsdichte weiter zunimmt, in den Griff zu bekommen sind sehr mächtige Softwarelösungen entstanden die dem Entwickler bei dem Design-Flow unter die Arme greifen.
Momentan führend auf dem Mark ist die Quartus II Software von Altera und die Design Suite 10.1 von Xilinx. Beide Firmen bieten sowohl die Softwaretools aus auch die passende Hardware in Form unterschiedlicher Chipfamilien zum Systementwurf an.
In der Projektarbeit werden die beiden Softwaretools grundsätzlich vorgestellt, ihre innewohnenden Möglichkeiten erarbeitet und schlussendlich die Neuerungen bezüglich vorheriger Version hervorgehoben. Dabei wird das Augenmerk größtenteils auf das Hauptprogramm aber auch auf einige Besonderheiten des jeweiligen Herstellers gelegt.

Abstract:
Today, embedded systems can be found in nearly all electronic devices, ranging from digital watches to systems for controlling of nuclear powerplants. Their designs are highly optimized for their specific task. Rapid advances in deep submicron and nanometer technologies, as well as in design automation are enabling engineers to design more complex digital systems.
However, with this increase in systems complexity the probability of manufacturing failures will also grow. Testing of embedded systems gets more and more important in order to provide a certain level of product quality. Manufacturers of embedded systems demand for new test
solutions that provide a high fault coverage at minmal test costs. This implies a high degree of test automation and the waiving of expensive test equipment usage. In this thesis a new approach for testing of embedded systems is presented. It is based on the development and execution of test programs that allow testing of the different system components and is hence called microprocessor-based embedded system test. The approach is elaborately analyzed and solutions for the generation and execution of test programs are presented. Additionally, the usage of debug features and debug access standards in microprocessor-based embedded system testing is discussed. Experiments with real hardware (descriptions) nally prove the feasibility of the approach.

Abstract:
The microprocessor design described in this degree dissertation is part of a holistic approach of Boundary Scan emulation based testing for failure diagnostics.
First of all several important fundamentals are set, followed by the gradually highlighted catalogue of requirements. Based on these requirements the design
and its core elements will be introduced. Although all decisions important for the design are explained. Practical results are presented from structural and functional
view in chapter five. The requirement completion will be discussed by the following design validation. Several possible extensions for the processor are presented and
judged afterwards. The closing résumé is followed by notes and diagrams, which will become important for further usage of the processor.

Abstract:
This diploma thesis is originated at the company IAV GmbH situated in Gifhorn, Germany. It was supervised by Prof. Dr.-Ing. habil. A. Mitschele-Thiel from the Faculty of
Computer Scince and Automation at the Technical University Ilmenau.
The diploma thesis discusses the development of a test environment for proving the implementation of the Radio Data System in radios or radio/route guidance systems in the automotive industry. To perform this task, techniques and concepts were developed, which enable a testing engineer to easily create and perform testcases in compliance to a company standard. The design of the resulting test system was done with the focus on an enhanced usability for further test applications.

Microcontroller NanoVM for Java

Status:
finished
Abstract:
For programmers of micro controllers the NanoVM provides an abstraction mechanism in terms of a programming interface that is independent from the underlying hardware.
If the according native methods, that define the range of functions, are implemented on all favored target systems, cross-plattform Java programs can be developed to control these systems.
A disadvantage is the very limited range of functions. If additional function are desired, they have to be reimplemented for every target system.
To integrate devices running the NanoVM in networks, it lacks of implementation of the TCP/IP protocol stack. Currently it is nothing known about such developments.

Abstract:
Intention oft this thesis was to research and summarize current findings in IT-Portfolio Management theories to build up the basics for a viable IT-Portfolio Management at Audi Hungaria Motors Kft. This should fulfill the tasks to carry the corporate IT strategy into the projects and provide a transparent overview over scheduling, authorizing and implementing IT projects. During the research it got obvious the balance between completeness and viability is crucial to the success and acceptance of the Portfolio Management process. Starting at the KPI based project assessment up to the final implementation of the Portfolio Management process, the adjustment to the needs of the company is indispensable. Therefore an IT project specific, cause-impact-based KPI system was designed to assess every new project based on a uniform system and check its resource usage and impact on the company. The aggregation of simple user inputs to KPIs, to KPI Clusters and finally to a complete project benchmark had to be adapted to the nature of ex-ante project assessment. Estimated values and other user input data contain errors, which can be partially modeled with the fuzzy set theory. Finally the thesis describes an example how to implement the Portfolio Management Process into the IT-Department via Portfolio management Team. Fundamental process steps are described and tasks of the Portfolio Management Team are specified.
