Etienne Borde - Home page

Etienne Borde is currently a researcher at LTCI (CNRS/Telecom ParisTech) and an Associate Professor at Telecom ParisTech. His activities focus on software engineering for real-time embedded systems. His research interests are: component-based software engineering, architecture description languages, model transformation, code generation, and formal verification. In his research, Etienne applies and develops such techniques to improve design methods of real-time embedded systems. The results of this work has been published in prestigious international conferences (a selection of these publications is available bellow). As a researcher, Etienne was involved in different research projects and you can also find more details about this at the bottom of this page.

This section describes the main software projects Etienne Borde was involved in. These contributions were realized in collaborative projects listed bellow.

Software Projects
  • RAMSES is a model transformation framework dedicated to the refinement of AADL models. The first version of RAMSES was developed in the scope of the PARSEC Project by TELECOM ParisTech.
  • Etienne Borde is the current leader the RAMSES project.
  • PRIDE is an integrated developement environement dedicated to the ProCom component model. PRIDE was developped by the University of Malärdalens (MDH) in the scope of the PROGRESS project. Etienne Borde was the initiator the the synthesis plugin of PRIDE.
  • MyCCM-HI is a component framework implementing a subset of the Lightweight CCM standard. The restrictions aims at respecting current practices in the developement of High-Integrity real-time embedded systems. MyCCM-HI was developed by Thales during the Flex-eWare project. Etienne Borde was the architect of the mode switches mechanisms in MyCCM-HI.

Collaborative Projects
  • PARSEC is a French collaborative project that aims at defining a development environment for critical distributed embedded systems requiring certification according to strict standards such as DO-178B (avionics) or IEC61508 (transportation) or Common Criteria for Information Technology Security (information systems security). The projects approach is to provide developers of these systems with an integrated tool suite that tackles the specific challenges related to these systems.
  • PROGRESS is a Swedish project dedicated to find methods for cost-efficient handling of the increasing complexity of software in computer-based products. Industrial sectors, such as the automotive, telecom, and automation industries are more specifically targetted.
  • Flex-eWare is a French collaborative project dedicated to the definition of open source software development tools dedicated to flexible, reconfigurable embedded systems.
