Introduces the design principles of modern computers. The topics include RISC and CISC architectures, interconnection networks, multiprocessors and multicomputer systems, dataflow and systolic arrays, future outlook for architectures and the basics of parallel algorithms. Credit may not be obtained in both EEEN 5304 and CSEN 5304.
Advanced concepts of circuit design for digital Very Large Scale Circuitry (VLSI) components in state-of-the-art Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor (CMOS) technologies. Emphasis is on the design and optimization of high-speed (high performance devices), high density (heterogeneous systems on a chip) and low-power (portable applications) integrated circuits. Prerequisites: EEEN 5330, EEEN 5333 (or approval of instructor).
A graduate research project must be completed and submitted to the Graduate Office for a grade to be assigned, otherwise IP notations are recorded. This course is specifically designed for Plan II and Plan III students. Prerequisite: departmental approval.
This course is for Plan I students. The course requires 6 hours of grades, the first 3 hours consisting of completion of a thesis proposal and the last 3 hours consisting of completion of the thesis. Completion of the thesis proposal is a prerequisite for enrollment in the last 3 hours of thesis.
