No of lectures

24 h

Recommended for

Graduate students in Computer Science and Computer Systems

The course was last given

The course has ceratin overlapping with the CUGS course on Real-Time and Embeddded Systems

Goals

The objective of the course is to present techniques for the
concurrent design, or co-design, of embedded systems that are
dedicated to specific applications and consist of tightly coupled
hardware and software components. It will discuss modern design
methodologies with an emphasis on early design phases, not covered by
traditional methods, including modeling, verification and system-level
synthesis. It will also discusses the topics of embedded real-time
systems, and power related issues at the system level.

Prerequisites

Organization

The course will be given in intensive forms in order to make
it easy for external students from other universities to attend.
The schedule will be coordinated with the ARTES++ graduate school.
