The aim is to present the basics necessary to understand digital circuit from simple gate to a processor (RISCV), mainly through lab work and a practical project.
This course uses a hardware description language (VHDL) to describe the circuits, uses software tools to simulate, synthesis, place and root circuits
.The real target is a FPGA to experiment.
In a first part, digital circuits are studied:
In a second part, these methods are used to design a simple processor able to execute a real instruction set ((RISCV).
This course is given at Academic periods 2 and 3.Prerequisites
Boolean algebra ; binary arithmetic
Exams : for session 1, written exam (2 hours): NP2, only one handwriten A4 sheet allowed ; for session 2, oral examination:N2
Grading of the project: NP3
N1=(NP2 examen écrit+NP3 projet)/2
N2=Examen de rattrapage
N1=(NP2 examen à distance+NP3 projet)/2
N2=Examen de rattrapage à distance
