Remarks

Diploma-students, who must join this Lab and the Embedded Processor Lab by the rules of "Prüfungsordnung" should contact Uwe Wasenmüller before registration.

Embedded Processor Lab (EIT-EMS-546-L-4)

Contents

Content of this lab are the modeling and extension of a typical RISC processor architecture (DLX). Students must realize the concepts of modern processor architectures (e.g. forwarding or memory caches) in hardware (synthesizable VHDL models) and analyze the runtime performance of processors. Additionally the concept of Application Specific Instruction Processor (ASIP) is trained. Furthermore students acquire skills in hardware validation and use of typical EDA tools (e.g. synthesis) in large projects.

Kick-Off Meeting: 23.04.2019, 14:00 in 12-270.

FPGA-Based Hardware Accelerators and Hybrid Systems (EIT-EMS-732-V-7)

Contents

This course teaches design, integration, and validation concepts for hardware-accelerated hybrid systems (in particular with FPGAs).  It focuses on the higher abstraction levels starting from the application itself, moving to over algorithm and execution platform selections to the final implementation.

Covered topics in this course:

  • Application-level design space exploration and selection of appropriate implementation styles
  • High-level synthesis (HLS)
  • Dataflow modeling and computing (Maxeler Technologies)
  • Commercial hybrid devices (Xilinx Zynq 7000 All-Programmable SoC)
  • Virtual platforms (VPs) and SystemC / TLM basics
  • Validation with unit tests and integration tests
  • Development styles
  • Methods and tools for project tracking and collaboration
