At the end of the seminar, the students is able to present a new idea or an existing approach in the area of computer-aided circuit and system design in an understandable and convincing manner.
For this purpose, the following competencies will be acquired:
* The student is able to independently become familiarized with a scientific topic in the field of electronic design automation.
* The student is able to present a topic in a structured way according to problem formulation, state of the art, goals, methods, results.
* The student can present a topic according to the structure given above orally, on a poster, with a set of slides, and with a written report.
Specific seminar topics in the area of electronic design automation will be offered. Examples are analog design methodology, digital design methodology, layout synthesis, and system-level design methodology.
The participants independently work on a scientific topic, write a paper of 2-4 pages and a poster, and present their topic in a talk. In the subsequent discussion the topic will be treated in-depth.
Teaching and learning methods
Students elaborate a given scientific topic by themselves in coordination with the respective research assistant.
Introductory lessons will be given by the course coordinator, further details are discussed between research assistant and student on an individual basis. Presentation skills will be educated by a professional teacher.
All current techniques for preparing and presenting papers and talks will be applied, e.g.
- blackboard, whiteboard
- electronic slides, beamer
- electronic word processing
- electronic slide processing
The examination consists of a written part in form of a paper and a poster (50%) and of a 20-minutes presentation followed by 5 minutes discussion (50%).
A set of topics and related literature is given at the start of the course. Each participant selects his/her topic.
