concepts at advanced undergraduate level (EEL4930) and introductory graduate level
(EEL5934) in reconfigurable computing based upon advanced technologies in field-
programmable logic devices.
Topics include general concepts, device architectures, design
tools, metrics and kernels, system architectures, and application case studies.
Prerequisites by Topic:
Fundamentals of digital design including design technologies,
design methodology and techniques, and design environments and tools; fundamentals of
computer organization and architecture, including microprocessor datapath and control
structures, data formats, instruction-set principles, pipelining, instruction-level parallelism,
memory hierarchy, and interconnects and interfacing.
Students will gain fundamental knowledge and understanding of
principles and practice in reconfigurable architecture and computing through class lectures
and discussions, reading assignments, homework and lab experiments, and a major research
