Learning objectives:
  To give the students the knowledge of advanced digital systems design including hardware description languages, professional CAD tools, techniques for constrained design, and PLD technology.
Description:
  Combinatorial and sequential logic design techniques, algorithms, and tools review. Review of digital design target technologies (ASIC, FPGA). Algorithms for minimization of digital circuits. Advanced synthesis techniques (pipelining, retiming). Constraint conditions. High-level synthesis (scheduling, allocation, binding). High-level synthesis (loop synthesis). Digital design using CatapultC environment (basic statements in C/C++). Digital design using CatapultC environment (loops, memory access). Low power design methodologies.
Reconfigurable computing. Verification of digital circuits (OVM methodology).
