Intended learning outcomes

The course includes methods and tools for design and implementation of electronic systems using VLSI technologies. The design methods aim at reducing the design time and guarantee correct designs as well as ensuring that performance requirements are met. After the course the student shall be able to to:

  • Design a digital circuit (RTL) that calculates a mathematical function.
  • Analyze the mathematical function calculated by a digital circuit (RTL).
  • Generate VHDL code that describes a digital circuit (RTL).
  • Analyze the digital circuit (RTL) described by a VHDL code.
  • Formulate the requirements for a digital system.
  • Identify the phases and tasks involved in the development of a digital system.
  • Generate, analyze and compare alternative approaches to implement a digital system.
  • Create an implementation of a digital system on an FPGA that fulfills a set of requirements.
  • Apply simulation tools to test, verify and validate a digital system.
  • Describe a digital system and justify that it meets a set of requirements.

Course content

Design of complex systems, project organisation, planning and documentation. Problem capture, specification, system design, complexity, partitioning and validation. Use of CAD-CAE tools. Behavioral description using VHDL. System architectures. Automatic synthesis of logic and implementation using FPGA technologies.

Teaching and working methods

The course consist of a series of lectures, laboratory work and a large design project that includes assignments and implementation of a system.
