"Digital Microelectronics" course of  4th level  in Telecommunication Engineering Studies has a practical continuation  in 5th level with the "Digital Microelectronics Lab" course. Also in the 2nd level of Electronic Engineering, the Lab complements the course "Microelectronics" of the first level. During both courses students develop, in teams of no more than three persons, lab projects using hardware description languages, VHDL or verilog. The subjects of every project are proposed with open specifications by the theachers, and implemented during the course.

Every project is implemented using the Foundation Design flow 3.1i downloaded to the FPGA from Xilinx XC4010XL, using the Xess board XS40. We don't use the on-board microcontroller.

The following list presents the lab-title and a brief description of every project implemented during this course 2000/2001. There are links for downloading the work for analisys pourpose. Remember that they are academic porjects.

Some projects have been made using XS40-PC utility.


Gently donated the software Foundation 3.1i licenses and the development  board XS40.

Technical support and development of the XS40 board.
