(FALL 2010, FALL 2011)

Lectures and labs on digital logic, flipflops, PALs, counters, timing, synchronization, and finite-state machines prepare students for the design and implementation of a final project of their choice, e.g., games, music, digital filters, wireless communications, graphics, etc. Extensive use of Verilog for describing and implementating digital logic designs. Students engage in extensive written and oral communication exercises.

Professor Vladimir Stojanovic,, Room 38-260
Prereq: 6.002 or 6.071

3-7-2, 12 Engineering Design Points

6.02 Intro to EECS II

(Spring 2008, FALL 2008, SPRING 2012)

An integrated, hands-on introduction to electrical engineering and computer science. Lectures and laboratory experiments explore modeling transmission systems in the time and frequency domains, analog and digital signaling, detecting and correcting errors, source coding, and the engineering of packet-switched networks. These explorations are used to illustrate some common EECS themes: the role of abstraction and modularity in engineering design, building reliable systems using imperfect components, selecting appropriate design metrics, understanding the limits imposed by energy and noise, choosing effective representations for information, analyzing the performance and correctness of algorithms, and engineering tradeoffs in complex systems.

Prereq: 8.02, 6.01 or 6.001, 18.03 or 18.06


6.083-6.973 Introduction to Digital Communication System Design

(Fall 2007, Spring 2006 - OCW )

Dual-offering (undergrad/grad), with shared lectures and adjusted weight/topics/level of difficulty on the project, problem sets and exams.

This course covers the digital integrated circuit implementations of fundamental building blocks in today's communication systems (coders and decoders, shaping and equalization filters, multi-tone modulation, synchronization, channel-estimation, multiple-antenna processing). Briefly introducing the communication theory behind different algorithms, the course focuses on techniques for mapping algorithms to modern digital integrated circuits (from micro-architectures to digital chip design techniques). The course is hands-on, with a project component serving as a vehicle for study of different communication techniques, architectures and implementations. Project is a digital integrated circuit implementation of a part of a communication system of choice (radio or wireline modem).

6.22s High-Speed I/O Design Techniques (Summer 2008)

Date: June 23-25, 2008 (registration deadline: May 23)
Location: MIT Campus | Cambridge, MA

Explore the circuit and system design of equalized high-speed I/Os. Following an introduction to the basics, focus on different link equalization techniques, comparing them from a system perspective and from the performance of resulting circuit implementations. Course includes one day of hands-on lab experience.

Basics of channel properties. Modeling, measurements, and communications techniques. Focus on different link equalization techniques, comparison from system and circuit implementation perspective. Examples cover trade-offs between transmit pre-emphasis and decision-feedback equalization, linear analog receiver equalization, as well as joint modulation/equalization and equalization/coding techniques (like PAM4, duobinary and multitone signaling). Implementations of transmitter FIR equalizers, several DFE receiver topologies, and peaking amplifiers will be discussed in detail. Several adaptive techniques for equalizer tuning and link monitoring will also be presented.
