LernzielUltra Low Power Microcontroller (MCU) – Firmware Programming and Sensors Interfacing using an Arm Cortex-M (STM32) Microcontroller

Microprocessors are used to execute big and generic applications, while microcontrollers are low cost and low power embedded chips with program memory and data memory built onto the system which are used to execute simple tasks within one specific application (i.e. sensor devices, wearable systems, and IoT devices). Microcontrollers demand very precise and resource-saving programming, therefore it is necessary to know the processor core, and particular importance has the investigation of the microcontroller's hardware components (ADC, clocks, serial communication, timers, interrupts, etc.).

The STM32 from STMicroelectronics has gained in popularity in recent years due to its low power and ease of use. The goal of this course is the development of understanding the internal processes in the microcontroller chip from TI. This will enable you to conduct high-level-firmware-programming of microcontrollers, to learn about the STM32 MCU features, benefits, and programming and how they can be connected with sensors, acquire the data, processing them and send the information to other devices. The course will also include an introductive lecture on machine learning and artificial intelligence on the embedded system and in particular microcontrollers. The C language will be used to program the microcontroller.

The course will be taught in English.

LernzielFPGAs are used in wide range of applications including video processing, machine learning, cryptography and radar signal processing, thanks to their flexibility and massive parallel processing power. Recently FPGAs have become important in quantum signal processing where high amount of data should be analyzed in a short time to use quantum setups most efficiently. In addition, FPGAs are used for quantum state detection and feedback generation, which have to be performed in the scale of hundreds of nanoseconds. The goal of this course is to understand the FPGA based signal processing for superconducting circuits based quantum experiments. The course participants will learn the implementation techniques of the modules for fast quantum signal acquisition and processing, the electronics supporting quantum experiments, and FPGA programming. You will implement quantum signal processing and quantum state detection modules using Xilinx FPGA, Verilog HDL, and high speed ADC. The course will be taught in English. No prior knowledge in quantum physics or FPGA is required, still a good knowledge in any coding language (for example C or Java) is required.

LernzielUltra Low Lattice FPGA – High Level Programming – Peripehrals Interfacing using an Lattice FPGA

Field-programmable gate array (FPGA) is an integrated circuit designed to be configured by a customer or a designer after manufacturing , so they are also "field-programmable". The FPGA configuration is generally specified using a hardware description language (HDL), similar to that used for an application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC). However more and more nowdays producers and open source community are providing higher level toolls to program them similary than processors. On the other side still it is important know the hardware architectures. This course will give to the students the opportunity to program FPGA in a high level way and use them to connect with external peripherals such as display, sensors, etc. In particular, the course will use the iCEBreaker FPGA boards that is specifically designed for students and engineers . They work out of the box with the latest open source FPGA development tools and next-generation open CPU architectures. The course will also iCEBreaker can be expandable through its Pmod connectors, so the students can make use of a large selection of third-party modules. The course will include a project where the students will learn how to build a full working system for the next generation of Internet of Things intelligent smart sensing.

The course will be taught in English by the new D-ITET center for Project-based learning.

LernzielDeep Learning Intro - Python - Accelerated Embedded Computing

Deep neural networks (DNNs) have become the leading method for a wide range of data analytics tasks, after a series of major victories at the ImageNet Large Scale Visual Recognition Challenge (ILSVRC). For ILSVRC, the task was to classify images into 1000 different classes, many of which are difficult to distinguish (e.g. many classes are different breeds of dogs). All that was given were 1.2 million labelled images. Meanwhile, this recipe for success has taken over many more areas, from image-based tasks like segmenting objects in images, detecting objects, enhancing images using super-resolution and compression artifact reduction, to robotics and reinforcement learning, and a wide range of industrial applications.
DNNs and their subtype convolutional neural networks (CNNs) have not been new in the 2013 when the wave of success has started, but they got this huge boost through the new availability of large-scale dataset and—at least as importantly—the availability of the necessary compute resources by using GPUs to perform the computations required during training.
While GPUs were then also used to stem the high computation effort of DNNs during inference (e.g. classifying images directly using a trained DNN rather than training the DNN itself). The high demand, the need for cost efficiency, and the goal of deploying DNNs not just in data centers but pervasively in everyday devices, wearables, and low-latency industrial or interactive applications, has triggered the development of various application-specific processors which are much faster, vastly more energy efficient, and cheaper at the same time—such as the Google TPU, Graphcore, …, and Huawei’s Ascend/Atlas platforms.

In this course, you will learn:
1) the basics of deep neural networks, how they work, and what challenges there are for inference,
2) how platforms with specialized hardware accelerators, specifically the Huawei Atlas 200, can be used for running DNN inference and getting a practical application running, and
3) work on your own project using DNNs and hardware accelerators based on your own ideas or on some of our proposals.

The course will be taught in English by the new D-ITET center for Project-Based Learning and a special guest lecturer from Huawei. Individual interactions/help can also be in (Swiss) German.
Most sessions will be around 1 hour of lecture and 2 hours of practical computer exercises. We will start an introduction and then you will have ca. 8 weeks to work on your project, which will concluded with a final presentation of your results.
