Working Group 10.5 "Design and Engineering of Electronic Systems" belongs
to the IFIP Technical Committee 10. It was established in 1994 by merging
the old 10.2 and 10.5 working groups.
Aims of WG 10.5
Electronic system design demands a tight integration on a very
large profile of knowledge and skills ranging from hardware and software system
architecture to semiconductor physics.
Functionality of complex embedded or stand-alone systems, to
be applied in areas such as general-purpose computing, telecommunications,
automotive, entertainement, and multimedia, may be realized by various combinations
of analog and digital hardware and software parts.
Systems can be implemented by single or multiple integrated
circuits and software modules that can be either of special purpose, programmable,
The working group aims at providing a forum amongst creative
experts to explore problem areas and solutions for the design of such complex
electronic systems and also disseminating the solutions to a broader industrial
and educational sphere.
Scope of WG 10.5
The Working Group is interested in a broad range of topics
related to the design and engineering of heterogeneous systems, containing
hardware, software, and even mechanical parts.
System Design Methods
Modeling and Specification
Formal Methods in Design
VLSI Systems and Applications
Test and Testability
