DIGITAL SYSTEM DESIGN
Credit points: 15
The unit will focus on advanced design techniques and methodologies in digital system design. Students develop hands-on experience in design, simulation, verification and implementation using industry standard CAD tools. The unit contents include: digital systems design methodology and design flow; programmable logic technology, architecture, design and synthesis issues; Register Transfer Level design, coding and synthesis; behavioural synthesis; sequential system design; analysis and design of asynchronous systems; clocking and timing issues; design validation; design for test; boundary scan and build-in self test.
