Objectives

At the end of the module students will be able to analyze and evaluate System-on-Chip and embedded system concepts. They are capable of designing and creating SoCs and embedded systems with their complex system components.

Description

In WS 2020/21, the lab is planned to be done online and remote and asynchronous: Introductory videos are downloaded at any time decided by participants. Access to lab and FPGAs is half a day each week at a given time slot. Concept of System-on-Chip (SoC); build an example of an embedded system with microcontroller, bus and peripherals; first implement an encryption algorithm using a standard hardware description language; then wrap the security module as a peripheral attached to bus; design an interface between peripheral and bus; apply an FPGA design flow for embedded systems, and embedded software for testing the encryption algorithm.

Prerequisites

Fundamentals of digital logic design; Fundamentals of programming

Teaching and learning methods

In addition to the individual methods of the students consolidated knowledge is acquired by providing subtasks of increasing complexity and difficulty in the laboratory notes. Teaching method: Students are free to work on their own, according to their own schedule, on the laboratory tasks. Students can work on the laboratory either in institute rooms, or at home. An adviser is available who will support them in case of significant difficulties. The following kinds of media are used: * Introductory lectures * Lecture slides available * Laboratory notes with detailed descriptions of tasks and tool environments * Individual discussions with advisor

Examination

Examination with the following elements: * Written examination 60 min. (40%) * project (60%) Knowledge-based teaching targets are examined with a written examination. Capabilities of designing a System on Chip are examined by a project consisting of design tasks on the System components and the system composition using a hardware description language. The examination is in form of software code and of a documentation of the design.

Recommended literature

The following literature is recommended: * ANSI, IEEE Standards Board, IEEE Standard VHDL Language Reference Manual: IEEE Std 1076-1993 , New York, 1988, ISBN 1559373768 * Peter J. Ashenden, Designer’s Guide to Vhdl, Morgan Kaufmann Publishers, 1995, ISBN 1558602704 * More literature listed in laboratory notes
