This course covers the design and implementation of digital signal processing
systems, with particular focus on the translation of behavioral descriptions
into an architecture or structure under constraints of speed, power, and
area. Several case studies will be presented, along with their highly optimized
dedicated designs, which exploit relationships between the algorithm and
The first half of the course will be primarily involved in introducing
the approaches, architectures and methodologies which have been used in
design of DSP systems. The latter half will then investigate how this material
has been applied in specific areas, such as video, audio, and wireless communication,
taken from research from somewhere.
This semester, special attention will be given to the following topics: lower power and asynchronous circuits and Systems. This will reflected in both the lectures and the preferred projects.
