System-on-Chip Design

This year we will not cover the SystemC language details or go into depth regarding SystemC for net-level RTL modelling. We will refer to it for high-level ESL modelling.

Instead, this year, a few further/extra slides on Chisel, High-level Synthesis and formal methods have been added.

Examples Classes

There will be three classes on 10th, 12th and 17th May in FW26 starting about 2:00pm. See noticeboards nearer the time.
