The research aspiration of the SoC Architectures and Programmable Systems cluster is to challenge the widening technology and data processing gap that exists for emerging and future services and applications of converging information and communication technologies. The research is targeting the creation of novel SoC architectures, SoC design methodologies, and programmability of systems that will meet the real-time computational and flexibility demands of current and future systems. A flyer summarising all the SoC research areas can be accessed here.

Research currently undertaken is divided into three main themes, with more specific projects within each theme:
