Long Title: ADVANCED DIGITAL HARDWARE DESIGN, IMPLEMENTATION, AND OPTIMIZATION
Department: Electrical & Computer Eng.
Grade Mode: Standard Letter
Course Type: Lecture/Laboratory
Credit Hours: 3
Restrictions:
May not be enrolled in one of the following Level(s):
Graduate
Prerequisite(s): ELEC 326 OR COMP 326
Description: This senior level course will investigate design and implementation of modern digital signal processing, machine learning, and security algorithms in hardware (including FPGAs and ASICs). Along with learning the principals of design, students will acquire hands-on experience in hardware implementation and the use of the hardware in modern applications including but not limited to mobile phones, biomedical devices, and smart cards. Emphasis is on digital processors, design implementation on FPGA/ASIC fabrics and testing real systems on board, architectures, control, functional units, and circuit topologies for increased performance and reduced circuit size and power dissipation. Graduate/Undergraduate Equivalency: ELEC 555. Mutually Exclusive: Credit cannot be earned for ELEC 427 and ELEC 555. Repeatable for Credit.
