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:
Must be enrolled in one of the following Level(s):
Graduate
Description: This graduate 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. Additional coursework required beyond the undergraduate course requirements. Graduate/Undergraduate Equivalency: ELEC 427. Mutually Exclusive: Cannot register for ELEC 555 if student has credit for ELEC 427. Repeatable for Credit.
