Arnaud Dion

Updated :

Associate professor at ISAE (formerly SUPAERO), the French Aerospace Engineering Institute, since 2022. I was previously research engineer at ISAE between 2004 and 2022. My projects and topics of interests include electronic architecture design, hardware-software codesign, satellite navigation algorithms and systems. While working as an engineer, I obtained my Ph.D in 2014 from ISAE.

My research takes place in the Critical Systems Analysis and Design (CASC) team.

 Research activities

My fields of interest cover the design System-On-Chip for Signal Processing algorithms. So I work on 2 domains : signal processing, mathematics and digital component architectures. What is the adequation between the algorithm and the architecture ? Sometimes, if the algorithm doesn’t fit (mainly time performance), we can change the architecture. And sometimes, we can do the reverse : modify the algorithm to take full advantage of the architecture.
