Design and Test of Systems on Chip

FPGA Chip

Kernveranstaltung der Vertiefungslinie Rechnerarchitektur im Diplomstudiengang Informatik.
INFOTECH: 2L+2E, 3rd semester course.

Overview

Technological progress in designing and manufacturing integrated circuits allows the integration of complex microelectronic systems including processors, memory, application specific and analog circuits into a single chip. This trend dominates today's and future systems and their design process: Costly manual design of logic is replaced by a core-based design methodology.
Besides the different design styles, paradigms and standards the essential steps of automated design, test and programming of digital and mixed signal circuits are discussed. Exercises and labs serve to practice the use of commercial tools and designs.

In the lecture the following issues will be addressed:

  • Overview over system design
  • Reuse and cores
  • Standards and platforms
  • Elements of analog and mixed signal designs
  • Design validation and verification
  • Test and design for testability with the related standards
  • Application and programming of embedded processors

Prerequisites: Advanced Processor Architectures

Exercise rules

  • The theoretical part of every task sheet must be solved prior to the according lab session and submitted in a hand written form by every single participant (no team work):
    • best: after the lecture,
    • latest: on Tuesday 12:00, submission box at ITI (staircase in the 2nd floor).
  • In the theoretical part, please answer the questions precisely and briefly.
  • Work on the practical tasks of every exercise must be graded until the end of the following lab session (hard deadline).
  • The practical tasks may be solved in groups of two students.
  • For students' records, we advise to bring a printed copy of the task sheet to the exercise and ask the supervisor to sign it after grading.
  • For consultations, please observe our office hours (published on supervisors' websites).

Grading and Exam

The final exam and the points from all exercises contribute to the final grade in the following way:

  • Exam: 70%
  • Exercises: 30%

Note: both parts must be passed (>50%) in order to pass the course.

The date of the exam has been set to 13.02.2012, 8:00 to 10:00 am, in V 57.02 (Pfaffenwaldring 57).
