Embedded System Design and Modeling

EE382V, Unique: 17295
Semester: Fall 2008


Embedded computer systems are ubiquitous, integrated into many devices we interact with on a daily basis. Driven by ever increasing application demands and technological advances that allow us to put complete multi-processor systems on a chip (MPSoCs), system complexities are growing exponentially. Together with tight constraints and market pressures, this makes the system design process a tremendous challenge and well-defined design methods and design automation techniques crucial to its success.

This course presents state-of-the-art methods, tools and techniques for system-level design and modeling of complete multi-processor systems from specification down to implementation across hardware-software boundaries. Using the SpecC language and the System-On-Chip Environment (SCE), we will specify, simulate, analyze, model and design systems based on examples of typical embedded applications.
