The course cannot be taken simultaneously with:
Design for the FPGA and ASIC Technology (MI-NFA.16)
Systems on Chip (MI-SOC.16)
Systems on Chip (MIE-SOC.16)
Lecturer:
Jan Schmidt (guarantor), Hana Kubátová
Tutor:
Jan Schmidt (guarantor), Martin Daňhel, Hana Kubátová
Supervisor:
Department of Digital Design
Synopsis:

The course brings basic laws that govern digital design and basic techniques to use them. It deals with both large and small scale systems. This is the base of advanced embedded systems, that profit from their specialized structure for effective computation and acceleration. Design of fast custom computing machines is discussed, including standardized means of internal communication, parallelism extraction and utilization in special structures and system architectures.

Requirements:

BIE-ČAO or equivalent knowledge about electrical circuits.

Syllabus of lectures:

1. Time in digital circuits. Timing models, synchronous circuits

2. Time in digital systems. Clock domains.

3. Digital circuits. Delay and power at the circuit level, circuit scaling.

4. Digital signals. Signal integrity, signal standards.

5. Jitter and noise in timing and decision level, jitter reduction techniques, clocck management.

6. Powe estimation and reduction at the system level.

7. Latency and throughput, system radius (latency to transfer time ratio). Quatitative approach to system architecture.

8. Communications in small-radius systems. Hierarchical communication architectures.

9. Communication in large-radius systems. Advanced serial communication. Networks on a chip.

10. Parallel computation in dedicated hardware, computation scaling, optimality criteria.

11. Architecture scaling

12. System-level design and models.

13. Digital design workflow and decomposition.
