ELEC6235 SOC Design Project

Module Overview

This project is a group based design project where the cohort is divided into teams and each team is required to complete a specific design task based around FPGAs or Embedded Processors. The module enables students to move from computer simulations to practical work. The project teams will also give several presentations and prepare a final report with both group and individual elements.

Aims and Objectives

Module Aims

To move into the lab and actually make SoC circuits for practical applications.
