ECE 4514: Digital Design II – Spring 2008 – CRN 11953 General Class Section Meeting Times o CRN 11953, Tuesday and Thursday 11:00AM-12:15PM, Durham 261 Instructor o Prof. P. Schaumont Durham Hall 361 540-231-3553 E-mail: schaum@vt.edu WWW: http://www.ece.vt.edu/schaum TA: o Sandesh Prabhakar E-mail: sandeshp@vt.edu Office Hours: o Schaumont - Tuesday, 4:00PM – 5:00PM, o Schaumont - Friday, 11:00AM – 12:00PM, o Prabhakar - Thursday 6:00PM – 10:00PM (in the CEL) Class Webpage: http://learn.vt.edu Objectives In this course, students will learn to use a hardware description language (Verilog) in the digital design process. Emphasis will be on system level concepts and high-level design representations. Methods will be learned that are appropriate for use in automated synthesis systems. Students will have the opportunity to use a commercial computer aided engineering (CAE) tool to design a series of increasingly complex devices. Students will also have the opportunity to use a commercial synthesis tool to automatically map high-level descriptions to Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs). Prerequisites All material in ECE 3504 is important. Specifically, familiarity with Boolean Algebra, logic gates, flip flops, registers, counters, ROMs, PLAs, multiplexers, and sequential circuits in Moore and Mealy form will be assumed. A grade of C- or better in ECE 3504 is required in order for you to enroll in ECE 4514 (enforced by the department). Required Materials and Textbook You will have to purchase a Spartan 3E starter kit ($109), for use in the system design project in this course. The Spartan 3E starter kit is the same one that is used in other computer engineering courses of the department. Special arrangements were made for Virginia Tech regarding the ordering procedure and access to the related design software. Follow the instructions on Blackboard regarding this procedure. You also need a DVD with design software for the Spartan 3E starter kit. In
