Jörg Henkel


The complexity and unpredictability of future embedded applications require new approaches to embedded processing.
The talk reports on the challenges and status-quo of the RISPP processor, an embedded processing approach that allows changing the instruction set during run-time depending on various constraints. A key research topic of this project deals with the question of what components of the processor should be fixed at design-time and what components should be left flexible for run-time decisions. The talk gives an overview of the whole project both from a software point of view but also from a hardware point of view. By means of an H.264 video encoder the advantages of the RISPP processor are demonstrated.

Jörg Henkel is currently with Karlsruhe University (TH), Germany, where he is directing the Chair for Embedded Systems CES. Before, he was with NEC Laboratories in Princeton, NJ.
His current research is focused on design and architectures for embedded systems with focus on low power and reliability. Dr. Henkel has organized various embedded systems and low power ACM/IEEE conferences/symposia as General Chair and Program Chair and was a Guest Editor on these topics in various Journals like the IEEE Computer Magazine, IEEE Tr on VLSI etc. Currently (2009) he is the General Chair of the IEEE/ACM Symposium on Low Power Electronics and Design ISLPED’09 and the General Chair of the IEEE/ACM CASES Conference. He is/has been a steering committee member of major conferences in the embedded systems field like at ICCAD, Codes+ISSS and is also an editorial board members of various journals like the IEEE TVLSI, JOLPE etc. He has given full/half-day tutorials at leading conferences like DAC, ICCAD, DATE etc. Dr. Henkel has received the 2008 DATE Best Paper Award and the ICCAD 2009 Best Paper Award. He is the Chairman of the IEEE Computer Society, Germany Section, and the Editor-in-Chief of the ACM Transactions on Embedded Computing Systems (ACM TECS). He holds nine US patents.
