The intent of this course is to instill in the students the cost-performance tradeoffs associated with implementing mathematical functions/concepts with digital circuits. This course is designed to give the students intuition on the practicality of implementing mathematical functions and concepts in digital hardware. Gaining such intuition is a necessary first step toward synthesizing block diagrams for digital systems. This course explains how to represent digital signals and implement important algorithms/circuits with finite-precision arithmetic.

Prerequisite(s): CME 341 and EE 362.
