Course "Digital Microelectronics Lab" is an optional course in the 4th level in Telecommunication Engineering title and in 2nd level in Electronic Engineering title. In this page all the information related to the projects is exposed.
The course consists
of a development and implementation of a complete microelectronic project
made by teams of THREE students.
The complete project have to be described in a HDL and have to be finished with a ready-to-run prototype, using a FPGA board. All the information about the course is given (in spanish) at the begining of the course Telecommunication Engineering and Electrónic Engineering.
The course site is at the assigned room in the compunting centre of our school.
The course pursues to give the student, added to the normal exercise of the contents of the microelectronics course, an experience on self-organising of the work inside the team, experience on oral presentations and take decisions in "open" problems.
During the course-time two documents must be done, draft project and project, and two oral presentations. A guide (in spanish) about how to do it is proposed. At the end of the course the temas has to provide:
