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:
  Overview of techniques, algorithms and technologies for digital design.  Methods for synthesis of digital circuits, minimization, espresso. Advanced synthesis methods, pipelining, retiming. ASIC and FPGA design methodology. Application of constrains. Synthesis with respect to required frequency, input/output delay, asynchronous clock domains. High level synthesis. Representation of algorithms in form of CDFG, process of scheduling, allocation, binding and RTL generation. Loop synthesis, techniques for loop unroling and pipelining. Specification of digital circuits using C/C++. Catapult C synthesis tool. Reconfigurable computing. Verification of digital circuits (OVM methodology). Low power design techniques.
