Embedded Parallel Computing

7,5 credits

The course is intended to provide knowledge of how parallel computing can be used as a way to meet application demands in embedded systems, such as performance and power efficiency. Further, it is intended to give a general insight into current research and development in regard to parallel architectures and computation models. Parallelism of various types exists in all modern computer architectures, and knowledge about how to apply parallelism is necessary, in particular, when designing embedded computer systems.
