System design is the central topic of this course. We move beyond the methods developed in circuit design (although we shall have interest in those) and consider situations in which the functional behavior of a system is the first object under consideration. There will be an introduction to modeling methods that can be used in the context of system design, followed by a discussion of the main issues that are to be considered when one want to design a system that satisfies a number of relevant performance indices.

After the course, you will be able to set up and use a ‘design methodology’ for complex data processing systems, in particular you will know how to set up its ‘design space’ and how to explore it. Worked out a nice example in design methodology. Know how to make parallel implementations for algorithms and how to use a paralleling compiler for that purpose. Be capable of designing an ’embedded system for signal processing’.
