Description

Introduction to GCD Machine and Number Systems is a free course that begins by introducing you to the design and implementation of the greatest common divisor (GCD) algorithm, as well as its translation to Verilog. You will also be introduced to the problems associated with GCD, as well as top-level modules in GCD machines. Go on to learn about instantiation and Verilog syntax representation of a controller and data path, including the writing of various data path elements and data path analysis.

The course then explains pipelining in digital circuit design, as well as using it to model real-world systems, including studying the terminologies related to pipelines and the methodologies for these circuits. You will be taught about the latency and throughput of a K-pipeline, ill-formed pipelines, as well as the concept of ‘after pipelining’. The applications of assignments and the modelling of circuits with pipelining in Verilog will also be covered.

Furthermore, you will get familiar with number system representation and the operational computation of signed numbers. You will learn about ripple carry adder, as well as the computation of number systems using the recursive doubling technique. This free online course will be of great use anyone with an interest in GCD machines, pipelining and number systems. If you register for this course now, you can start your next learning journey today.
