CONFIRM - Automatic Firmware Design for application-specific Electronic Systems

CONFIRM is a cluster research project consisting of seven research partners who are researching key aspects for an efficient, automated design of firmware that is designed specifically for the hardware conditions of the system, but also for application scenarios. For this purpose, common hardware firmware models are developed, which allow abstract optimization with respect to various parameters. Based on this, a new design method is developed and with the aid of this a firmware can be created automatically and can be adapted for the system configuration and the usage profile.

The CONFIRM-Project is funded by the german federal ministry of education and consists of seven research partners and four industry partners:

  • RWTH Aachen
  • Technische Universität Kaiserslautern
  • Technische Universität München
  • Universität Rostock
  • Universität Stuttgart
  • Universität Tübingen
  • Infineon Technologies AG
  • Intel Deutschland GmbH
  • Mentor Graphics (Deutschland) GmbH
  • Robert Bosch GmbH
