Electronic Design Automation
Supervisor: Lukas Jünger
Type: Master Lecture
Course language: German, English
Link to online lectures: Will be provided on Moodle or request it by emailing the supervisor.
This lecture is aiming at all students which are interested in the area of electronic design automation (EDA) for digital circuits and "system-on-chip (SoC)" designs. SoC refers to integrating all components of a computer or other electronic system into a single integrated circuit (chip). It may contain digital, analog, mixed-signal, and often radio-frequency functions - all on a single chip substrate.
In the lecture we will illustrate the principles of SoC design - with a particular focus on the optimization of the system architecture and embedded software. We will present design methodologies and tooling - system level design is generally assumed to be the most promising invention in EDA and is a fundamental enabler to design modern SoCs.
