Advanced System-on-Chip Design Online Course
The revolution in mobile computing has been driven by the low power and integrated performance available in modern System-on-Chip (SoC) designs. This course outlines a typical advanced SoC design process: from creating high level functional specifications to design, implementation and testing on real hardware using standard hardware description and software programming languages. Taking a hands-on approach covering both theory and practice, the course includes details for designing and developing an image processing demo application.
