ECE 485 Microprocessor System Design

Advanced hardware and software design of desktop type microcomputer systems. Topics include large project design management and documentation; DRAM system design, cache organization, connections, and coherency; the memory hierarchy and virtual memory; I/O buses such as AGP, PCI-X, and Infiniband; multithreaded operating system considerations; JTAG(IEEE1149.1) and Design For Test; high frequency signal integrity; and power supply considerations. Team-based, independent design projects are a substantial part of the homework for this class. Also offered for graduate-level credit as ECE 585 and may be taken only once for credit.
