Parhami's course syllabi or his home page Background and history of ECE 252B Professor Parhami took over the teaching of ECE 252B from the late Dr. James Howard in the winter quarter of 1989. By covering sequential machines, computer arithmetic, and advanced microprocessor-based design, the graduate course sequence ECE 252A/B/C was meant to provide the students with a firm foundation in the theories and techniques of advanced digital design. During the first few offerings of ECE 252B, Professor Parhami gradually modified the content to increase both its coverage and research orientation (ECE 252A and 252C later underwent similar transformations by Professor Kwang-Ting Cheng and Professor Parhami, respectively). In 2000, based on a decade of experience in teaching this course, Professor Parhami published a graduate-level textbook (Oxford University Press), which is being used at many universities worldwide. The second edition of this textbook is scheduled to appear in mid to late 2009. The link Computer Arithmetic: Algorithms and Hardware Designs takes you to the book's Web page which contains brief and complete tables of contents, presentation material, and a list of known errors. Special note: Web links in the following descriptions may be out of date. Please refer to the most recent offering of ECE 252B for up-to-date information.
