Previous editions of this course
In each edition of this course we develop a different design. Here
is a list of all designs implemented so far.
Spring 2017 FPGA Mandelbrot:
Generate Mandelbrot fractals on DE2-115 development board and
display them on an VGA monitor.
Three different projects implemented using the DE1-SoC board:
voice controlled oscilloscope (DE1-SoC board, bluetooth, Android app
with voice recognition and display of signals); Photo1, Photo2
2) Harry Potter
Weasley clock: if a Harry Potter fan, then you know what I
mean! :-) (De1-SoC board, ESP01 with ESP8266 WiFi module, internet
server, Android and iPhone apps for location capture and recording
to server); Photo1, Photo2
3) Snoopy, server
monitoring with FPGAs: internet traffic monitor; (HPS+FPGA
system on DE1-SoC, Linux, Ethernet, security, VGA monitor); Photo1
In addition, the digital camera project from last year, 2015, was
used to develop a senior design project (SDP), which implemented the
Viola Jones face detection algorithm entirely on the DE2-115 board.
Details and a video demonstration of it can be found on the Hardware
Digital camera implemented on DE2-115; used OV7670 CMOS sensor;
SDRAM memory storage; grey filter; edge detection;
Here is an additional video that showcases the edge detection in
Basic Network-on-Chip (NoC) prototyping on FPGAs; implemented on
DE2-115 and ZedBoard.
