Summary

 

Custom Computing - CO318

Aims

Custom computers are special-purpose systems customised for specific applications such as signal processing and database operations, when general-purpose computers are too slow, too bulky or too power hungry. Traditionally the development of custom computers is an expensive, time-consuming and error-prone activity. This course introduces approaches which enable the rapid and systematic design of custom computers.
