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.
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.

The knowledge of students is examined by the mid-exam (20 points), the project (25 pints) and by the final exam. The final exam enrollment is conditioned by obtaining of min. 5 points from the project. The minimal number of points, which can be obtained from the final exam, is 25 (of 55 points). Otherwise, no points will be assigned to a student. Plagiarism and not allowed cooperation will cause that involved students are not classified and disciplinary action can be initiated.
- Project (25 points)
- Mid exam (20 points)
- Final exam (55 points)
