Welcome to COE 838/EE 8221 "Systems on Chip Design" website for Winter 2020.
Please contact your Instructor if you have any difficulties accessing the website.
This course will cover the basics of system-on-chip
(SoC) design, hardware-software co-specification,
co-synthesis, network-on-chip (NoC) systems and
system-on-programmable-chip technologies. It provides the
advance knowledge required for system-on-chip design and
development, multi-core architectures and embedded systems
on a chip. Students will also be introduced to the main
principles of embedded system-on-chip modeling and design
using SystemC. Various SoC soft processor cores such as
Nios-II, Microblaze, ARM Cortex A9, etc and other SoC IPs
will be explored. Various design tools including Altera
Quartus II and SOPC builder will be utilized in the labs
and projects. Interconnection structures suitable for SoC
design will be studied. On-chip busses (e.g. AMBA, Avalon,
IBM Core-connect, etc.) and network-on-chip techniques
will be covered in detail. SystemC can be employed to
present a unified (Hardware and Software) view of various
system-on-chip components. SystemC will also be introduced
for SoC modeling at the transaction level.
