Course description and aims

Exercises on microprocessor software(instruction set, assembly programming) and hardware(arithmetic logic, control logic) designs and FPGA board operation is given from the lab textbook. In the second half of the lab class, groups of 2 to 3 persons will choose a free topic on microprocessor design enhancement, and the group will work together from planning, implementation and documentation to experience the group work.

Student learning outcomes

Obtain skills to program a 16-bit microprocessor using assembly language.
Obtain skills to design and simulate a microprocessor using hardware description language.
Obtain skills to verify microprocessor behavior on FPGA board.
Experience the group work on microprocessor design enhancement project including planning, specification design, implementation, design verification, design evaluation and documentation of the whole process.

Keywords

Microprocessor, instruction set, assembly programming, hardware description language, FPGA

Competencies that will be developed

Specialist skills Intercultural skills Communication skills Critical thinking skills Practical and/or problem-solving skills

Class flow

Groups of 2 to 3 persons will conduct assembly programming, Verilog simulation, FPGA verification, and free topic project, and submit report on each subject.
