System-on-chip Design

7,5 credits

With technological advances that allow us to integrate complete multi-processor systems on a single die, Systems-on-Chip (SoCs) are at the core of most embedded computing and consumer devices, such as cell phones, media players and automotive, aerospace or medical electronics. This course will provide an understanding of the concepts, issues, and process of designing highly integrated SoCs following systematic hardware/software co-design & co-verification principles. In addition to the conceptual foundations, this course will also involve significant hands-on assignments and/or a project that will give students an exposure to state-of-the-art design methodologies and platforms.
