The course focused on ultra-low power integrated circuit design for distributed and decentralized systems (e.g., IoT, AIoT), and in particular on the design of chips for edge nodes. The course provided an insight into system requirements imposed by real-world applications, the fundamentals to understand the related challenges, and advanced design ideas to address them. Several aspects were discussed from a design viewpoint, ranging from ultra-low power system architectures, architectures and circuits for processing, data sensemaking (e.g., machine learning on a chip), energy harvesting, on-chip power conversion, sensor interfaces and wireless communications.
