CPE 187. Embedded Processor System Design. Students will design, construct and test an embedded processor system project. All address decoding, control functions, input and output ports, handshaking signals and interrupt control will be implemented in an FPGA. The system will interface to a microcontroller system. Students will use an assembler, a C compiler and either VHDL or Verilog to fully test their project. Laboratory techniques include oscilloscopes, logic analyzers, protocol analyzers and programmers for EPROMs, FLASH and microcontrollers. One lecture per week and one three-hour laboratory per week. Prerequisite: CPE 166, CPE 185, EEE 102, and (GWAR Certification before Fall 09, or WPJ score of 70+, or at least a C- in ENGL 109M/W). Graded: Graded Student. Units: 2.0
