This is a course on the design of large digital systems. Digital systems lie at the heart of almost any electronic system including consumer devices, cell-phones, signal processing systems, computers, biomedical devices, etc. This course will provide the opportunity to design real digital systems containing significant amounts of hardware and software.

Most of the course will be focused on a design project, where you will have the opportunity to design a real system using state-of-the-art tools and technology.

More information on this course: Also here's a link to a compiled FAQ List from the Jan '07 offering of this course as well as FAQs for the Tutorials and the Project discussion boards from the Sep '09 offering. Please note that as of this year, we will be using Xilinx's ZED boards and the Vivado tool flow. As such, we will be doing different tutorials, so some of the FAQs may or may not apply.
