Governmental basic financing
Centre for Integrated Electronic Systems and Biomedical Engineering - CEBE
CEBE is Estonian centre of excellence in research, financed from the EU Structural Funds. It is based on research cooperation of 3 state-financed research projects from Tallinn University of Technology:
- Design of Reliable Embedded Systems (RES) from the Department of Computer Engineering, led by prof. Raimund Ubar;
- Electronic Components and Subsystems for Mission Critical Embedded Systems (EMBEL) from the Thomas Johann Seebeck Department of Electronics, led by prof. Mart Min;
- Interpretation of Biosignals in Biomedical Engineering (BME) from Technomedicum, led by prof. Ivo Fridolin.
The ambition of CEBE is to become the leading Estonian centre responsible for R&D in the areas of electronic components, systems, computer and biomedical engineering. The Centre of research excellence will be created by developing TUT’s existing scientific expertise and capacities developed within:
- Estonian Excellence Centre of Dependable Computing (2003-2007), where the RES research team was one of the founding members;
- TUT’s Centre of Excellence in Electronics and Bionics (2002-2007), where the EMBEL research teams formed the basic institution for R&D in semiconductor and medical engineering;
- TUT’s Centre of Excellence in Biomedical Engineering (2002-2007), where BME carried out the basic load of scientific activities in biomedical engineering.
CEBE is a natural extension of long term cooperation between the research teams. In 2005 CEBE research teams were chosen as one of the five Estonian research centres for R&D infrastructure development program, funded from the EU Structural Funds. As a result, a new and modern Embedded Systems and Components research environment, consisting of three baselabs: Communicative electronics (SIE), Micro- and nanoelectronic components (MINAKO) and Synthesis and Analysis of Embedded Systems (ASSA) has been developed.
In recent years, the research teams have also shown considerable ambition and entrepreneurial flair to develop their research capacities by being founding members in the Competence Centre in Electronics, Info- and Communication Technologies (ELIKO). ELIKO was established in 2004 with the main goal to develop innovative technologies and products, based on intelligent embedded systems, through strategic co-operation between the science and industry sectors.

FUSETEST - Functional Self-test, Self-diagnosis and Failure Analysis for Integrated Electronics Systems
Estonian ICT R&D programme's basic research project. (2013-2015)
The general goal of the FUSETEST project is to create models for representing defects in emerging technologies, and based on these models to develop functional self?test and self?diagnosis methods for integrated electronic systems, including electronic board systems as well as single- and multi-core integrated circuits. In order to support application of the functional test to electronic systems and to increase the diagnostic resolution automated diagnostic access methods are to be developed within the project and the project results are to be evaluated on complex integrated electronic system boards. The project's budget is 318 kEUR.
