About Us

ECS is led by two engineers with a strong scientific background, having each nearly 15 years of track records in advanced R&D projects. They are committed to deliver the best of their expertise to allow you to succeed in delivering innovative products.

Philippe Manet

Philippe Manet obtained his engineering degree in 2003 from Université catholique de Louvain (UCL) in Belgium. He holds a Ph.D. in computer architecture for embedded systems from the microelectronics laboratory at UCL, where he was a research associate. He also holds a master degree in management science from the Louvain School of Management.

During his Ph.D., he followed high-level courses given by top international lecturers in the fields of computer architecture and embedded systems. He also took part in several european research projects, in collaboration with major industrial players. He specialized in parallel processor architecture, execution model and compilation toolchain for DSP applications.

He is author and co-author of more than 28 scientific publications in international conferences, journals and workshops. He has been a technical program committee member of the « Design, Automation and Test in Europe » (DATE) and « Design and Architecture for Signal and Image Processing » (DASIP) conferences. He has been co-chairman and moderator of the « Avionics, Military and Space » session in DATE from 2007 to 2009. He has reviewed scientific papers for the « Journal of Low Power Electronics » (JOLPE), the « EURASIP Journal of Embedded Systems » and the “IEEE Transactions on Very Large Scale Integration”.

Bertrand Rousseau

Bertrand Rousseau obtained his engineering degree in 2005 from Université catholique de Louvain (UCL) in Belgium. He holds a Ph.D. in computer architecture for embedded systems from the microelectronics laboratory at UCL. He has been a research fellow at the Fonds National de la Recherche Scientifique (FNRS) of Belgium.

During his Ph.D., he followed high-level courses given by top international lecturers in the fields of computer architecture and embedded systems. He also took part in several research projects in collaboration with major industrial players. He specialized in dedicated platform architecture to accelerate software-defined embedded application (e.g. software-defined radio). He worked on efficient architectures and execution models for DSP applications, on precise architecture-level comparisons and on their impact on performances of homogeneous many-core platforms.

He is author and co-author of more than 15 scientific publications in international conferences, journals and workshops. He reviewed scientific papers for the “Design and Architecture for Signal and Image Processing” (DASIP) conference, the “Journal of Low Power Electronics” (JOLPE) and the “EURASIP Journal of Embedded Systems”. He has also been maintainer and contributor of several open source software projects. He is currently member of the GNOME foundation.
