During the last 4 weeks of the fall semester in ECE576, Advanced Microcontroller Design, students at Cornell University are given the responsibility of using an Altera/Terasic DE2 FPGA development board to build an interesting system-on-chip project. This year’s projects include an audio spectrogram generator, a voice pitch shifter, and a realtime random-dot stereogram generator. The projects are typically combinations of hardware specified in Verilog and C software running on an embedded controller, although some are pure Verilog generated hardware. The projects range from tools to games. The parallel nature of the FPGA encourages graphics and audio applications, but infrasturcture applications such as hardware UDP are encouraged.
