Special Topics in System Level Design: Networks on ChipFDA175, 2004HT
Graduate students in Computer Science and Computer Systems.
The course was last given
Networks on Chip is a new paradigm for system on chip design. It borrows ideas from Computer Networks for providing interconnections and communication among on-chip cores. The goal of the course is to introduce the issues involved in designing systems using this new paradigm. The course also addresses the issue of analysis and mapping of time and power constrained applications on network on chip architectures.
Basic knowledge of system design in software or hardware.
The course will consist of invited lectures and presentations by the students.
