ECE Intro Course Teaches Students to Design Video Games, Alarm Clocks, and More
Imagine creating your own video game, fabricating an alarm clock, or designing an electronic piano.
Students taking EC311: Introduction to Logic Design during the spring didn’t just read about how a computer functions – they programmed their own hardware, too.
As part of their final projects, Assistant Professor Douglas Densmore (ECE) asked Boston University students to explore the world of verilog, a hardware description language used to model electronic systems.
EC311 student, Robins Patel (ENG ’13), took footage of the final results and recently created a video of the projects.
What resulted was everything from a student-designed version of the video game, Guitar Hero, to an electronic pill box that confirms how many pills one has taken daily.
