Projects are a major component of this lab, making up 50% of the grade. Projects start
after the 4th week and should be completed by the end of the semester. Projects must be
done in groups with up to three students. They proceed in four phases: white paper,
proposal, design & implementation, and final report. The deadlines on all phases are
Projects can be of different kinds; see some sample projects below. It is required that
each project have theory and design & implementation components, although this is
natural since the course is concerned with logic design.

The white paper is a short document, 3-5 pages, which sketches a proposed project. It
should lay out some background, the problem, the method by which it is approached,
and the expected outcome.

The proposal is a more extensive document, 5-10 pages, which highlights preliminary
results, partial implementations, and goes into more detail on the approach, including
measures of success.

The final report is in the style of a technical report with no particular target on page
numbers. It should detail background, approach, and results in the manner of a
technical document. Specifics of the contents will depend on the nature of the project.

Project presentation will be composed of two parts:
• project demonstration (group, in front of the class)
• project defense (individual, in front of the instructor)

• project demonstrations must be short and clear: the project’s verbal description
and a demo
• project defenses are individual (NOT in groups), 5-10 min
• presentation quality will be critical in determining the final grade
The following information must be included to receive the highest grade:
1. Detailed specification of the project
• purpose
• flowchart if needed

2. Project design and architecture

• circuit schematic
• state diagrams
• timing diagrams
• flowcharts
• etc., whatever is needed

3. Detailed description of the problems and technical issues encountered

4. Conclusions
• whether the project works according to provided specifications
• exceptions (or special care)
• ways to improve the project

For the project, you will be graded on:
1. white paper; (5%)
2. proposal; (10%)
3. circuit’s behavioral functionality (truth table, logic diagram); (15%)
4. application functionality; (40%)
5. your creativity in developing the project; (10%)
6. circuit cleanliness; (10%)
7. and final report write-up. (10%)

The deadlines on all phases are strict.
1. white paper………………………………..(October 15-19)
2. proposal……………………………….. ….(November 19-23)
3. project demonstrations……………………(December 31- January 4)
4. project defenses/final reports…………….(January 14-18)
Given below is the list of some projects*. It is not compulsory that you select from this
list. You can select your own projects. The maximum group members’ limit is
mentioned with each project. The number of group members for the projects other than
the mentioned ones, should be according to the complexity of the project. Otherwise
marks will be deducted. Also please note that same project will be assigned to two
groups only. The project assignment will be on first come, first served basis.
