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.
