  • English
  • Every autumn semester
  • The course aims to give a thorough understanding in Computer Arithmetics especially with a focus on algorithms and architectures. Increasing complexity and high requirements on performance in the form of throughput and low power consumption will increase the expectations from future designers. To have a solid base in this subject is one of the skills that are important for both circuit designers as well as system designers.
Knowledge and Understanding
  • For a passing grade the doctoral student must
  • be able to describe simple and more advanced number systems
    be able to analyze sequential digital arithmetic circuits for addition, multiplication, and division
    be able to analyze high speed digital arithmetic circuits for addition, multiplication, division
Competences and Skills
  • For a passing grade the doctoral student must
  • be able toidentify and apply his or her knowledge to analyze the most common arithmetic architectures.
    be able to communicate the content described in the textbook orally.
Judgement and Approach
  • For a passing grade the doctoral student must
  • be able to communicate the content described in scientific papers, orally
    have acquired knowledge enough to be able to discuss ideas, problems and solutions with competent digital designers
    be able to sort out important information independently, from an extensive material, such as a textbook
Types of Instruction
  • Seminars
  • Exercises
Examination Formats
  • Written assignments
  • Seminars given by participants
  • Seminars based on the textbook material and seminars based on research papers, where the students will give seminars. At least 80% attendance on the seminars is demanded. The students will be offered a number of hand-in exercises to choose among. Certain flexibility is needed in the examination form depending on the number of students. Rules for reexamination: By agreement with the examiner
