Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


A student design workshop course for introducing students to the TMS320C31 Digital Signal Processing (DSP) chips as a microprocessor was discussed. The workshop experience provided an excellent opportunity for students to merge information they had gained in two different disciplines, DSP and Microprocessor Systems, into one project design. By requiring students to use the common hardware of the DSP Starter Kit (DSK) board provided students an excellent understanding of the two disciplines and their relations to each other. The workshop class was found to be succesful in combining knowledge students had gained in several different classes.
