The Information Processing Factory (IPF)

The IPF project is an international collaboration among University of California, Irvine, TU Munich and TU Braunschweig.

IPF stands for Information Processing Factory and it is a step towards autonomous Multi-Processor System-on-Chip (MPSoC) platforms in Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) and the Internet of Things (IoT). IPF represents a paradigm shift in platform design, with robust and independent platform operation focusing on futuristic platform-centric design, rather than the traditional focus on semiconductor device and software technology.

The following research staff are involved with the project at TU Braunschweig: Thawra Kadeed and Dr.-Ing. Eberle A. Rambo.

IPF is jointly funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (German Research Foundation - DFG) and the National Science Foundation (NSF).
The project started on March 1st, 2018 with a DFG funding period of 3 years.
