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.
  • Foster, I.: Designing and Building Parallel Programs. Addisson-Wesley, 1995.
  • Bull, M.: Writing Parallel Programs Using OpenMP, Version 1.2. EPCC, University of Edinburgh,
Teaching methods
Lectures that correspond to intended aims of tuition.
Assessment methods
Final examination consists of 2 parts:
1) written test - acceleration of the selected algorithm;
2) oral exam - teoretical problems from list of the passed subjects.
