Renaud Pacalet

I am teaching and researching in embedded systems and Systems-on-Chip (SoC), hardware security and digital communications.

I am an old-fashioned professor-researcher-developper. I love free and open source software, scripting languages like bash, perl or tcl, command-line interfaces, powerful tools like vim, git, GNU make, sed, awk, find... I am fond of LaTeX, even if I progressively move to Markdown and Pandoc. After 25 years of digital hardware design I am still fascinated by the Hardware Description Languages and what they can be used for, especially quickly turn an FPGA into (almost) any processing machine you want.

I avoid Graphical User Interfaces and binary proprietary formats like the plague.
