In this research, we reconginized the importance of experimental courses in education of computer engineering based on VLSI technologies, and tried to establish a curriculum for the courses. We made trials of design exercises of education-purpose microprocessors, and improved experimental materials.
(a) Trial of designing exercises : In Kyushu univ., designing exercises was done by small numbers of students and we obtained kinds of information on experimental practice of education-field. The design target is an education-purpose 32bits RISC microprocessor named QP-DLX, which include more than 30,000 gates. In Waseda univ., VLSI design experiment was done by 10 groups on an 8bits microprocessor, and we got various experiences on experiment courses including implementations as LSI chips.
(b) Application to inctoductory education courses : In Kyushu univ., Ritsumeikan univ., Kyoto industrial arts and fiber univ., and Ochanomizu univ., exercises are done in the class using an educational boa
rd with KUE-CHIP2 for introductory education of computer engineering.
(c) Application of FPGA : In Kyushu Institute of technology, design exercises using FPGA are done on 16bits microprocessor KITE.FPGA has been popularized widely in recent years and it will be one of good candidates of experimental materials in universities. We have obtained many kinds of know-how on FPGA and the curriculum using it.
(d) Improve experiment materials : We made Experiment materials, guidebook and model curriculum using QP-DLX.We also published a design process of KUE-CHIP2 on a commercial magazine. Through these activities, we succeeded to spread the knowledge onVLSI design in universities.
(e) Improvement of system software : We are developing system software (OS, compiler, etc.), necessary to software experiment using education-purpose microprocessor.
(f) Publication of designing data : We distribute designing data and document about QP-DLX to domestic and foreign researchers as benchmark data of CAD research. Less
