Talk:Computer Architecture Lab
At w:Universidad de Las Palmas de Gran Canaria we get, in this lab, lessons on VHDL and work on a partial implementation of the DLX processor (by Patterson or Hennesy, I think).
We then are required to add a few instructions to the processor, and later are required to implement either a Branch Prediction Table or multiple functional units (to achieve paralelism in the EXecution step).
May I add some of it here?

ok, feel free to add it Schoeberl 15:13, 27 March 2007 (UTC)
Available textbook[edit source]
I have been starting work on a textbook that would be a suitable companion piece to this lab. You can find it at b:Microprocessor Design. I am also working on a textbook that covers programming in both Verilog and VHDL at b:Programmable Logic. Both of these books are new, but if we work together on the books and the wikiversity course, I think we can make an excellent learning environment for this subject. --Whiteknight 17:55, 6 February 2007 (UTC)
Good idea Schoeberl 15:13, 27 March 2007 (UTC)
