Courses in Winter Semester

We offer the following courses in the winter semester:

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

Contents

Content of this lab are the modeling and extension of a typical RISC processor architecture (RiscV). Students must realize the concepts of modern processor architectures (e.g. forwarding or memory caches) in hardware (synthesizable VHDL / Verilog 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.

Smart Systems Engineering (MV-VPE-86730-V-4)

Contents

Unsere Welt besteht zunehmend aus komplexen interdisziplinären technischen Systemen (Stichwort „Cybertronische Systeme“). Die Entwicklung solcher Systeme stellt durch die zunehmende Komplexität und immer stärkere Einbindung von Elektronik und Software eine große Herausforderung an den Produktentwicklungsprozess dar. Außerdem werden Produkte im Rahmen von Industrie 4.0 zunehmend zu integrierten und miteinander kommunizierenden Systemen verbunden. Die Ringvorlesung adressiert diese Herausforderungen an eine interdisziplinäre und kollaborative Produktentwicklung. Es werden grundlegende Systementwicklungsmethoden, - prozesse und IT-Werkzeuge aus unterschiedlichen Disziplinen vermittelt. Der Fokus liegt dabei auf einem modellbasierten Vorgehen. Die angehenden Ingenieure werden nach dem neuesten Stand der Erkenntnisse qualifiziert und erwerben die erforderlichen Kompetenzen für die technologischen Weiterentwicklungen zukünftiger Produkte und Systeme.
