The need to receive and process higher data rates in computer clusters is an ever-increasing trend. This also applies to radio-astronomic systems, which have become more distributed over the past decades, increasing data traffic between antennas and processing facilities. At the antenna, Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) digitise the radio...

Over the past 20 years, the cost of sequencing genomes has reduced drastically. As DNA data grows at an unprecedented rate, the need for fast and affordable software and hardware solutions for DNA analysis is higher than ever. A critical and time-consuming component in any DNA analysis pipeline is sequence alignment, which refers to mapping...

In order to ensure that autonomous driving vehicles can make appropriate driving decisions based on the surrounding situation, motion prediction algorithms are used to generate the driving decision output, which will then be used for guiding the trajectory of the vehicle. In general, the output of the motion prediction algorithm is a series that...

Scalable universal quantum computers require classical control hardware, physically close to the quantum devices at cryogenic temperatures. Such classical controllers need digital memory for various applications, ranging from high-speed queues to high-speed and low-speed lookup tables and working memory. The power consumption of the memories...

The world of quantum computing is still quickly developing and growing as it is searching for the best technology to implement quantum bits. One of these technologies is a diamond-based quantum computer using nitrogen-vacancy (NV) centers. In order to sustain the mentioned growth, the limits of electronics as well as computer engineering need to...

Payment channel networks (PCNs) are a promising solution to the blockchain scalability problem. They move payments off-chain, i.e., not all payments have to be included in the blockchain. Thus, they do not require that every payment is broadcast to all participants and verified by them. Not requiring global consensus reduces latency, computation...

Entanglement is an essential resource for a variety of applications, such as distributed quantum computing and quantum cryptography. However, long-distance entanglement generation is challenging because of two reasons: photon loss occurs as an exponential function of distance through an optical fiber and the no-cloning theorem prevent us from...

Tydi is an open specification for streaming dataflow designs in digital circuits, allowing designers to express how composite and variable-length data structures are transferred over streams using clear, data-centric types. This provides a higher-level method for defining interfaces between components as opposed to existing bit- and byte-based...

One of the most important problems that needs tackling for wide deployment of Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) is the bias in ASR, i.e., ASRs tend to generate more accurate predictions for certain speaker groups while making more errors on speech from others. In this thesis, we aim to reduce bias against non-native speakers of Dutch compared...

Since the introduction of networking protocols for Low-power and Lossy Networks (LLN), many implementations have been created in the form of (real-time) Operating Systems (OS), simplifying their usage and making the technology more widely available. The low cost and low complexity of LLNs allow for large-scaled wireless sensor deployments,...

In recent years, the big data era has produced an increasing volume and complexity of data that requires processing. To analyze and process these large amounts of data, applications are being scaled on large clusters using distributed data processing frameworks. A more recent trend utilizes hardware accelerators to offload computationally...

Color centers in diamond offer exciting opportunities for implementing an effective solid-state spinphoton interface. Access to and control of spin-photon interaction can help realize a scalable, modular quantum computer using the color center spins. A large magnetic field is needed for splitting the color center spin states, enabling definition...

60 million people around the world have epilepsy, which is a neurological disorder that severely impacts their day to day life negatively. Currently available methods to reduce the effects of epilepsy are either ineffective or require expensive and invasive surgery. A new method has been found that can suppress epilepsy without the need of...
