48451 Embedded Systems Studio A

Requisite(s): 48441 Introductory Digital Systems
Recommended studies:

Knowledge of basic digital systems and microprocessor/computer architecture is essential for this subject.



The subject has two major components: (i) analysis/design, and (ii) implementation, of an advanced computing node. The subject provides an in-depth understanding of the analysis/design and implementation of advanced digital hardware at medium scale computer system building block level. It builds on the basics of 48441 Introductory Digital Systems introduced in the earlier fields of practice subject.

The subject is studio based and concepts such as digital design process, functional design, implementation technologies, advanced digital architectures, and memory and I/O systems are examined within the context of project work. Students are able to plan, design, and develop digital intellectual property (IP) using FPGAs and hardware description languages (HDLs) such as Verilog and VHDL after completing this subject.
