Advanced Training in High Performance Embedded Systems


Venue:  Hotel Slovenska Plaza****, Budva, Montenegro
Date: 09. 06-14. 06. 2019
Description:  The training is intended for all those who want to acquire real-life knowledge from advanced embedded systems. The equivalent load of the 5 days training seminar is 3 ECTS credits. The main topics are: Recent challenges in Embedded computing, Cyber Physical and Internet of Things design, advanced FPGA design, Cutting-edge DSP processors, Code Optimization, Real-time operation systems, Real-time signal and image processing. Most lessons will be followed with practicexercises. The detailed agenda is given bellow, while more information could be obtained by Profs:

Naim Dahnoun and Dr. Sergey Vityazev (Naim.Dahnoun@bristol.ac.uk ,  vityazev.s.v@tor.rsreu.ru ).

Price:  The training fee is  €350. The accommodation prices in Slovenska Plaza for FB are:  in 3* hotel €36 in 1/ 2 room and €43 in  1/ 1 room; in  4**** hotel 39,00€ in 1/ 2 room and  €45 in 1/ 1. The Excursion costs around €30 per person and the conference dinner  €40 (not compulsory) per person. You can arrange the accommodation and social life by yourself (the fee is only compulsory).

Note 1: Real-time Operating System, TI-RTOS (SYS/BIOS):  This lecture is divided into three main sections: (1) Real-time scheduler that is composed of the hardware and software interrupts; the task, the idle, clock and timer functions, synchronisation and events, (2) the Dynamic Memory Management and (3) laboratory experiments.
Note 2: Software Optimisation, Linear Assembly, Interfacing C and Assembly: This lecture discusses the different levels of optimisation for multicore and shows how code can be optimised for a DSP core. This lecture also shows how to use intrinsics and interface C language with intrinsics and assembly code. Multiple examples showing how to optimise code by hand and using the tools are provided.
Note 3: FPGA:  A field-programmable gate array is an integrated circuit designed to be configured by a customer or a designer in the process of prototyping. The FPGA configuration is generally specified using a hardware description language (VHDL or Verilog). In some sense it is intermediate phase in designing/manufacturing an application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC). The preparation phases before configuration is text description entry or block diagram (schematic) entry.
Note 4:  GPUs- Graphics Processing Units, DNNs: Deep Neural Networks
Note 5: DSP processors:  are specialized microprocessors or microcontrollers, with its architecture optimized for signal processing tasks.
