Course description and aims

Exercises on microprocessor software(instruction set, assembly programming) and hardware(arithmetic logic, control logic) designs. In the second half of the lab class, each student will choose a free topic on microprocessor design enhancement, and make a planning, implementation and documentation to experience the creative design 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.
Experience the 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

Competencies that will be developed

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

Class flow

Each student will conduct assembly programming, Verilog simulation, and free topic project, and submit report on each subject.
