This paper describes a lab session-based course on hardware/software (HW/SW) co-design. Real problems often need to combine the speed of an HW solution with the flexibility of an SW solution. The goals of this course are to show that there are many alternative solutions in the design space and to teach the fundamental concepts of HW/SW co-design. The sample… CONTINUE READING
