Thesis structure. The thesis includes introduction, four chapters, conclusions, 135 bibliography references, 3 annexes, 144 sheets of base text, including 72 figures, and 5 tables. The results are published in 58 scientific papers.
The area of study is researching of theoretical and practical aspects embedded systems design, which includes microcontrollers and/or programmable devices for specific applications, the comparative analysis of architectural and structural solutions by the performance and cost criteria.
The purpose of this thesis is to increase the quality for special purpose devices, to increase the design and development speed in embedded applications for the medium or small production volume and complexity.
Scientific novelty of the results is: structuring of functional/ architectural approaches in the area of embedded applications design for medium and low volume; development of model for parametric cost estimation for hardware, that includes cost of the PCB for extended input/output space; developing of methodology for analysis compared to the cost and quality of others incorporated structures.
The solved scientific issue were to develop a methodology for hardware costs estimation, including PCB and system quality, as reference to the input/output area size and the production volume at the early designing stage.
The theoretical value of the thesis is to propose new models and methods for choice of the optimal system architecture solution, by estimating the cost of the system depending on the input/output area size and production volume, followed by the quantitative analysis of the quality criteria of cost-performance.
The thesis value is to develop a parametric model to estimate cost of embedded hardware in the early designing phase. The methodology for quantitative analysis of others solutions quality allows a well-motivated choice for technology platform to achieve the device engine.
Implementation of scientific results is represented by the use of models and methodology approached in the thesis, by the development and implementation of a series of functional samples of devices for medical applications, industry and the social sphere.
