Learning objectives:
  To give the students the knowledge of hardware/software computing systems co-design techniques including behavioral modeling of both hardware and software components as well as their interaction, partitioning algorithms, analyzing and profiling techniques, simulation, synthesis, and verification of designed systems.
Description:
  System-level aspects of computing systems design. Constrained and optimized HW/SW system design. Behavioral description. Models and implementation of basic HW and SW components and their interface. HW and SW components synthesis. Mapping of behavioral description onto components. Components interface synthesis. Scheduling of access to shared components. Techniques for prediction and analysis of constrained and optimized design. Partitioning algorithms and tools. Hardware synthesis and code generation. Verification. HW/SW computing architectures. Integrated HW/SW development systems. Optimized HW/SW systems case studies.
Knowledge and skills required for the course:
  Basics of system simulation and design.
Subject specific learning outcomes and competences:
  The students understand the theory and techniques of an automated hardware/software co-design of constrained computating systems.
