2012 ~ Present



Continue to develop and extend the SoC we have created.

Issues Involved or Addressed

Tape-out new version of chip design for fabrication this semester
Physical layout of new chip design including I/O pads
Build supporting hardware for the ARM Cortex M0 processor
peripheral interfaces such I2C
integrate a graphics controller
test and improve on existing interfaces
PCB design for test and demonstration of new chip design
Update and verify a debugging unit for the ARM Cortex M0 processor
Write C code to test and demonstrate the new chip design
Possibly dabble in some full custom analog work
