Programming for Heterogeneous Computing Systems ENSC 453 (4)
The computing industry has been actively exploring specialized and programmable hardware accelerators, such as GPUs and FPGAs, to bring orders-of-magnitude performance and energy gains for important application domains. This course covers fundamental concepts, designs, and programming of heterogeneous computing systems, including multicore CPUs, GPUs, and FPGAs. Prerequisite: ENSC 350 and ENSC 351, both with a minimum grade of C-. Students with credit for ENSC 462 under the title "Programming for Heterogeneous Computing Systems" may not take this course for further credit.
