ARM and OpenCL Courses
ARM Architecture with x86 Comparisons

ARM processors are at the heart of many tablets, mobile phones, digital cameras, and other small portable devices.

This class looks at the range of processors comprising the ARMv7 architecture, how the processors across the range are similar yet target different markets, and compares the architecture with Intel's x86 (IA-32) architecture.

OpenCL Programming for GPU/Multicore Architectures

OpenCL allows parallel computing on heterogeneous devices such as combinations of multicore CPUs, GPUs, and other hardware accelerators (DSPs, etc.). OpenCL is also emerging as a primary programming framework for high-performance computing, mobile computing, and 3D graphics domains.

This course provides hands-on programming experience and explains the development environment and programming techniques required for developing general-purpose OpenCL software applications for GPU and multicore hardware.

USB 3.0 Link Layer & Protocol Layer Retransmission Mechanism
by Ellisys

USB 3.0 retransmission mechanisms are quite different from USB 2.0 because of the new routing infrastructure. USB 3.0 has separate retransmission mechanisms in the Link and the Protocol Layers for optimizing data buffering in devices and especially hubs. This white paper examines traffic exchanged between two link partners (such as a host and a device) when a DPH is received as invalid by one end.
