48451 Embedded Systems Studio A6cp
Requisite(s): 48434 Embedded Software
Knowledge of basic digital systems and microprocessor/computer architecture is essential for this subject.
Field of practice: Electrical Engineering and ICT Engineering majors
The subject has two major components: (i) analysis/design, and (ii) implementation, of an advanced computing node. The components are integrated and are reflected in the percentage of the subject mark. 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. Topics include: digital design process, functional design, implementation technologies, advanced digital architectures, and memory and I/O systems. It emphasises computer-aided design, including the use of VHDL specification, simulation and programmable VLSI implementation technologies.
