Autumn Workshop 2005
7th - 8th September 2005
University of Essex, UK
Digital systems design has undergone a revolution over the last decade with the introduction of hardware description languages (HDLs) and the latest generation field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs). Where once complex digital systems could only be discussed within the classroom environment, the ability to incorporate the cost-effective physical design and prototyping of complex “System in a Chip” (SoC) designs is a realistic option. The advances, if considered carefully, can be used to significantly enhance the teaching and learning of digital systems design from basic processor cores through to high-speed communications networks. The EEUG Autumn Workshop 2005 is to be held on the 7th-8th September 2005 at the University of Essex. Contributions are sought from those involved in (or have planned involvement in) teaching and research activities, in the following (but not exclusive) areas:-
courseware for SoC design, fabrication and test (SoC or System in a Package
Description Languages (HDLs).
activities incorporating programmable logic devices.
and safety issues.
Aided Design (CAD) and Computer Aided Test (CAT).
and learning experiences.
in National and European based Educational research projects.
EEUG membership is drawn from all areas of Electronics, Electrical Engineering, Computer Science and associated disciplines. EEUG workshops bring together a wide range of practitioners to exchange news, views, experiences and opinions, and attracts an audience from a variety of Higher Education institutions, together with delegates from RAL and industry. Information about previous workshops is available at the EEUG Website (http://www.eeug.org.uk), or from the EEUG Chairman (details below).
types of contribution will be sought:
Oral presentations, which are informal in nature, and should be 20 minutes in duration.
