- Courses PA174 - Design of Digital Systems II, PA176 - Digital Systems Architecture II, PB161 - C++ are necessary for current course.
- Course Enrolment Limitations
- The course is also offered to the students of the fields other than those the course is directly associated with.
- fields of study / plans the course is directly associated with
- there are 70 fields of study the course is directly associated with, display
- 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.
- Learning outcomes
- Student will be able to understand and use all the common methods of acceleration of computation that is realised at the level of cirquits.
- 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.
