- Introduction to Verilog (for who did not follow LELEC 2531 students)
- Embedded processors and "soft-core" like Nios or MicroBlaze on FPGA
- Standard devices of a processor and development of a dedicated device
- Adding specialized instructions ("custom instructions") to the processor architecture
- Architecture of a dual-core system. Communication between cores
- Real-time operating systems: characterization and comparison
- In-depth analysis of a real-time OS open-source (eg MicroC-OS/II)
- Programming methodology of an application on a real-time OS
- Embedded Linux. Development of driver
- Implementation of a wireless module connected to the FPGA board
At the end of this learning unit, the student is able to :
Given the learning outcomes of the "Master in Computer Science and Engineering" program, this course contributes to the development, acquisition and evaluation of the following learning outcomes:
Due to the COVID-19 crisis, the information in this section is particularly likely to change.The teaching methodes includes lecture sessions where the main issues are explained. The implementation is done through assignments that students perform individually or in groups.
A FPGA card containing an Altera Cyclone is given to each student in the course so that it can develop a personal expertise. The entire software suite (Quartus, ModelSim, Eclipse, MicroC--OS/II ...) is free.
Due to the COVID-19 crisis, the information in this section is particularly likely to change.The evaluation is based on a continuous evaluation during the academic year. The practical details are specified on the course website.
