Objectives

MULTED's main objective is the definition, integration and test of new specific platforms aimed at the education environment with specific attention to classroom delivery and distance learning.

In order to achieve these objectives, the project will design and integrate hardware and software platforms aimed at the specific needs of the users, and then test them through the implementation and test of specific applications.

This will provide the following advantages:

To achieve these objectives, the project will evolve in the following way:

A second objective addresses the definition of platforms able to manage digital video. Given that a number of microelectronics companies are already designing MPEG chips (two of them were partners in COMIS, 2102), the critical missing item in this scenario is an integrated circuit for a PC board with the following functions:

A VLSI chip able to carry out these functions and suitably designed for use in a multiplicity of environments will have a wide range of applications
