Course information

Content and learning outcomes

Course contents *

The course has a varying content being updated each year according to industrial development trends, but the selected topics will be focused on real applications of system-on-chip platform in industrial practice.

Example topics are:

  • Advanced SoC enablers.
  • Networks-on-a-chip.
  • Single-chip radio.
  • Radio frequency identification (RFID) technology.
  • Ultra-wide band radio in CMOS.
  • Mixed-signal design in SoC.
  • Real SoC for set-top box.

Intended learning outcomes *

This course aims to provide students a front-line view of system-on-chip (SoC) design and implementation through many application examples in industrial practice. Key technological trends and challenges in real SoC applications will be analyzed and how these challenges are solved will be demonstrated. Through these SoC application examples, students are expected to have a better understanding of basic theory and design methods gained in other VLSI and SoC design courses, to develop basic skills on how to use a divergence of SoC design knowledge in SoC design practice.
