Course Objectives: This course focuses on advanced concepts in computer systems design, and the interaction between hardware and software components at various levels (i.e., hardware/software codesign). It introduces common performance measures and tradeoffs used by hardware and software designers to facilitate comparative analysis. The main topics are Technology challenges, Pipelining, Multicore architecture, Advanced memory technologies, Introduction to parallel computing, Conventional architecture for AI acceleration, Analog neuromorphic computing architecture, and Digital in-memory computing.
