General Information

Division: Electrical and Information Technology
Course type: Third-cycle course
Teaching language: English


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.
