EMS wins Xilinx OpenHardware Design Contest for the second time in a row.

Already last year Christian Brugger received the award in the category "High level Synthesis". This year Vladimir Rybalkin won the in the category "PhD Embedded" with his project "Novel Recurrant Neural Network for OCR".

The anual Xilinx Open Hardware Design Contest enables young researchers to demonstrate their technical and creative skills. Unlike last year there were two project categories in 2016: Embedded Design and Digital Design. In each category two awards were assigned to the best projects of an undergraduate student and a PhD student respectively. Each award comes with a prize money of 1500 Euro.

Out of 15 finalists and over 100 overall projects Vladimir Rybalkins project has won in the category "PhD Embedded". In a video Vladimir Rybalkin presents his work: a hardware implementation of a novel recurrent neural network for optical character recognition.
