443 Distributed Processing and Control Networks (3 cr)
This course has three major
parts: real-time computing, distributed processing, and control
networks. Analysis of hardware and software performance with respect to
speed, accuracy, and reliability. Investigation of ways of maximizing
the three essential processor resources: memory, CPU time, and
input/output. Methods for writing error free programs and designing
fault tolerant computing systems.
ECE 340, ECE 341, ECE 350, and ECE 351
is an advanced course on the design of distributed processing systems.
We focus on the development of large and complex software systems that
can be modularized and distributed across multiple tasks and/or
processors using a variety of communication mechanisms.
is a fast-paced, project-intensive design course with lots of
programming and time in the lab. Think microcontrollers on steroids. We
start where the introductory
finished and go full-bore, pedal to the metal, until the semester ends.
If ECE 340/341 didn't sit well with you, then this is not a good course
