The objective of this course is to present the basics of real-time signal processing using hardware or VLSI architecture. The concept of real-time processing would be emphasized in the course. Various hardware architectures and approaches for processing signals in real time would be discussed. Optimum VLSI system design and the trade-offs would be elaborated.
- Graduate Certificate in Signal and Media Processing
- FlexiMasters in Signal and Media Processing
At the end of the course, learners would understand the need of different architecture for implementing hardware systems for real-time processing. Techniques for designing systems to achieve the required throughput using VLSI architecture would be acquired. In particular, basic skills required for designing and developing hardware architecture for system design would be achieved. These skills are useful in real-time system design in industrial applications.
Hardware for Pipelining, Scheduling, Feedback problem, Arithmetic hardware, Algorithm strength reduction and transforms, Parallel recursive filters, Retiming, Unfolding, Folding.
For engineers who wish to upgrade their technical knowledge and skills in the area of digital signal processing, which can be used in the Infocomm industry for hardware design of any real-time signal processing task.
