Systems in mobile telephones, computers, cars and aircraft are shrinking, with many parts implemented as a single integrated circuit. This course prepares you for the rapidly changing skills required to support this. The focus is on system-on-chip design techniques and extensive practical use of cutting-edge and industry-standard methods. You will be taken through the system-on-chip design process, from concept to implementation.
