- Course objectives
- Main aim of this courese is understand and master theoretical knowledges necessary for design of the acceleration mechanism for use in the digital system design. The lessons are specialized in particular into following topics:
Principles of algorithm acceleration;
aplication of the hybrid systems.
- Principles of algotithm acceleraton;
- application of the parallelism and computional capacity distribution;
- using of the hybrid systems and harware accelerators;
- acceleration in depence on data types - double, init a char;
- acceleration based on data array types - blank, scalar, vector;
- acceleration in depence on program structures - cycles and conditional statement based on conditon of the scalar value.
