Our sophisticated services and products are the result of our research and development (R&D) activities. We are constantly working on new services and products. Participating in national and European R&D projects we can participate in cutting-edge developments and expand our network of customers and partners. 


QUALIGON is proud to be part of the HORIZON2020 R&D project FRACTAL founded by European Commission and the Federal Ministry of Education and Research – BMBF of Germany. The objective is to create a reliable computing node that will create a Cognitive Edge under industry standards. Our focus is the especially the protocol definition and the implementation of machine learning algorithms for different applications, e.g. customer predictions in retail and mobile network quality predictions.


  • The computing node will be the building block of scalable Internet of Things
  • The cognitive skill will allow to forecast its internal performance and the state of the surrounding world
  •  This node will have the capability of learning how to improve its performance against the uncertainty of the environment
  • This complex network will transfer all those cognitive advantages to the Edge


FRACTAL leverages two different platforms offering different tradeoffs, one being the commercial node and the other the customizable node.
The commercial builds upon the Xilinx VERSAL adaptive acceleration platform.
The customizable node will be designed around the open RISC-V instruction set architecture (ISA) and based on the open-source PULP platform.
