Institute of Electrical & Electronic Engineers
The system-on-chip module described here builds on grounding in digital hardware and system architecture. It is thus appropriate for third-year undergraduate computer science and computer engineering students, for post-graduate students, and as a training opportunity for post-graduate research students. The course incorporates significant practical work to illustrate the material taught and is centered on a single design example of a drawing machine. The exercises are composed so that students can regard themselves as part of a design team where they undertake the complete design of their own particular section of the system.
