Entry requirements

Note: Admission requirements for non-programme students usually also include admission requirements for the programme and threshold requirements for progression within the programme, or corresponding.

Prerequisites

Microprocessor fundamentals corresponding to the contents of Computer hardware and architecture. Basic knowledge of DSP, corresponding to the contents of Signals and systems. Basic knowledge of VHDL or Verilog, corresponding to the contents of Computer hardware and architecture or Design of Digital Systems.

Intended learning outcomes

To give student industrial design experiences to design application specific instruction set processors as well as embedded systems. After completing the course, students shall:

  • have knowledge of the concepts of embedded systems, DSP implementation, DSP processor architecture, DSP hardware with finite data precision.
  • be able to design an application specific instruction set including profiling, instruction set specification, SW-HW co-design, instruction set coding, and instruction set benchmarking
  • be able to design the microarchitecture of a processor or other computation unit, including the design of the register file, ALU, MAC, control path, memory subsystem, and peripherals
  • be able to write efficient firmware for computation kernels with finite data precision on a DSP processor
  • have knowledge of firmware development toolchain
  • have knowledge of processor integration and verification.
(The roman numbers in parenteses are used in the IUAE matrix for this course.)

Course content

General DSP processors. ASIP (Application Specific Instruction Set Processors) for DSP. Differences between CPU and DSP. ASIP design methods. Numeric representations for DSP and its hardware. Data path design, memory- and bus architecture, and DSP Addressing. Instruction set design. Performance analysis and evaluation of DSP processors. Control path design. Peripherals and DMA. DSP Firmware design, assembly simulators, debuggers and development environments. Processor verification techniques.

Teaching and working methods

Lectures, tutorials, and laborations. During the labs each student will complete a small DSP processor.

Regulations (apply to LiU in its entirety)

The university is a government agency whose operations are regulated by legislation and ordinances, which include the Higher Education Act and the Higher Education Ordinance. In addition to legislation and ordinances, operations are subject to several policy documents. The Linköping University rule book collects currently valid decisions of a regulatory nature taken by the university board, the vice-chancellor and faculty/department boards.

LiU’s rule book for education at first-cycle and second-cycle levels is available at http://styrdokument.liu.se/Regelsamling/Innehall/Utbildning_pa_grund-_och_avancerad_niva.
