Course objectives
Main aim of this course 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;
application of the hybrid systems.
  • Principles of algorithm acceleration;
  • application of the parallelism and computational capacity distribution;
  • using of the hybrid systems and hardware accelerators;
  • Acceleration depending on the types of data fields - double, init a char;
  • acceleration based on data array types - blank, scalar, vector;
  • acceleration depending on program structures - cycles and conditional statement based on condition of the scalar value.
  • Bull, M.: Writing Parallel Programs Using OpenMP, Version 1.2. EPCC, University of Edinburgh,
  • Foster, I.: Designing and Building Parallel Programs. Addisson-Wesley, 1995.
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 - theoretical problems from list of the passed subjects.
