Fall 2011: VLSI Digital Signal Process Systems

Course No.: EECS 598-002
Credit Hours: 3
Instructor: Zhengya Zhang
Prerequisites: EECS 427 or permission of instructor

Course Description:
Digital signal processing (DSP) systems have been enabled by the advances in very-large scale-integrated (VLSI) technologies. New DSP applications constantly impose new challenges on VLSI implementations. These implementations must satisfy real-time constraints imposed by the applications and must fit increasingly stringent area and power envelope. This course will survey methodologies needed to design efficient and high-performance custom or semi-custom VLSI systems for DSP applications. The primary focus of the course is on design of architectures, algorithms, and circuits, which can be operated with small area and low power consumption to deliver a high speed and functional performance.
