Scientific Career

Professor Herkersdorf (b. 1961) and his team conduct research in the fields of architectures, coprocessors, design methods and accelerators for application-specific multicore processors (MPSoC). IP packet processing, embedded automotive systems and visual computing are among the main target applications. In addition, his Chair has proven expertise in prototype development on FPGA platforms, bio-inspired, self-organizing MPSoC solutions and techniques to improve fault tolerance and energy efficiency at system level.

After studying electrical engineering at TUM, Professor Herkersdorf received his doctorate at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) Zurich in 1991. He then joined the research team at IBM Research – Zurich in the communication systems department and became manager of the network processor hardware group in IBM’s research division. In 2003, Professor Herkersdorf was appointed to the Chair of Integrated Systems at TUM. He is a member of the editorial boards of various international journals and, since 2012, an elected member of the German Research Foundation (DFG) Review Board for computer architecture and embedded systems.
