Goals and Contents of the Lecture
Hardware/Software Codesign denotes the integrated and automated design of hardware and software in computer systems, in particular embedded systems. Virtually any state of the art embedded system, e.g. mobile phone, game console, or automotive and industrial control system, comprises cooperating hard and software components. Driven by the demand for new functionalities and the rapid progress in the area of microelectronics these systems become increasingly complex. Hence the use of computer aided design methods is not only necessary to deal with the complexity of these systems, but also to reduce design cost and time.
The goal of this course in Hardware/Software Codesign is to introduce the fundamental problems in the automated design of complex computer systems and to present the most important methods for modeling and solving these problems. More detailed information on the contents and organization of the lecture will be published on this webpage. If you have any questions, feel free to contact Prof. Plessl.
