DISABILITY ACCOMMODATIONS
Students needing academic accommodations for a disability must first register with Disability Accommodations & Success Strategies (DASS). Students can call 214-768-1470 or visit http://www.smu.edu/Provost/ALEC/DASS to begin the process. Once registered, students should then schedule an appointment with the professor as early in the semester as possible, present a DASS Accommodation Letter, and make appropriate arrangements. Please note that accommodations are not retroactive and require advance notice to implement.(See University Policy No. 2.4; an attachment describes the DASS procedures and relocated office.)
OBSERVANCE OF RELIGIOUS HOLIDAYS
Religiously observant students wishing to be absent on holidays that require missing class should notify their professors in writing at the beginning of the semester, and should discuss with them, in advance, acceptable ways of making up any work missed because of the absence. (See University Policy No. 1.9, University Undergraduate Catalogue - General Policies)
EXCUSED ABSENCES FOR UNIVERSITY EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES
Students participating in an officially sanctioned, scheduled University extracurricular activity should be given the opportunity to make up class assignments or other graded assignments missed as a result of their participation. It is the responsibility of the student to make arrangements with the instructor prior to any missed scheduled examination or other missed assignment for making up the work.(University Undergraduate Catalogue - General Policies)
COURSE OUTLINE
Advanced topics in switching theory and electronic design automation methods. Emphasizes the underlying theory and algorithms of EDA tools and their application. Particular emphasis on the representation and properties of discrete mathematics and synthesis, verification, and simulation problems. Includes binary and multiple-valued logic models that are targeted to conventional and emerging technologies, as well as optimization techniques for cost, performance, low power, and other constraints. Recommended: Experience in the use of HDLs and algorithm development and implementation.
