ECE 5534 - Electronic Design Automation (3C)
Why take this course?
Pressure on reducing a product's time-to-market is placing increasing demands on the preparation of correct specifications and the synthesis of designs meeting the requirements of the specifications. Because specifications occur in every design project, engineers must understand the capabilities and limitations of various notational systems used to express design requirements, and must know how the notations are related as well as how they should be interpreted. This course is essential for students who will develop systems to automate design methodologies and synthesis of designs from high-level specifications. The course also significantly benefits the students who will be responsible for the preparation of specifications, as well as, the students that will manually synthesize designs from initial specifications. Also, the material of this course is essential for graduate students planning on doing a thesis or dissertation in the area of electronic design automation.
