Markus Schütz' Diploma Thesis wins Distinguished Young Alumnus Award

With his Master Thesis "COTS FPGAs for Space - From Old Concerns to New Possibilities" our student Markus Schütz (Supervisor: Andreas Steininger) won the Distinguished Young Alumnus Award (EPILOG June 2019) that is given to the faculty's best diploma thesis of the past semester. A scientific jury selects the best 4 candidates to present their work in an oral talk. Based on this talk and the written thesis, the winner is then selected.

In his thesis, Markus Schütz developed a new method for recovery in TMR systems that leverages the partial reconfiguration features of modern FPGAs. His work has already been published at DFTS2018, and he has shown a demo and poster of his idea at intel labs (Portland) in 2018, where it received quite some interest.
