- Project 1 final drafts were due
Tuesday, October 23 on Blackboard.

But it might be good practice for the exam, in class Tuesday, October 16!
- Project 1 rough drafts were due
Thursday, October 11 on Blackboard.
- Project 1 topics were due in class Tuesday, October 2.
- HW1: Build a simple CPU inside a digital circuit simulator, like
Logisim (see below). Feel free to start from one of my examples in the
- You must have at least 3 registers.
- You must have at least 3 operations, including addition (see "Arithmetic" -> "Adder")
- You must have at least one branch-type instruction (for example, jump to a given address, skip the next instruction, etc).
- You must drive the registers and operations from a single ROM (or RAM). The only manual input should be the clock.
- 641 students: add your choice of CISC instruction encoding, pipelining, or RAM read/write access.
me the .circ file, and a .jpg screenshot of the CPU adding 3 and 5 from
two of the registers and storing the result in a third register.
Turn these in on Blackboard (log in there first). Due by midnight Tuesday, September 18.
- HW0 is due in-class Thursday, Sept 6. You can download the Logisim circuit simulator and runnable .circ files here.
