CSE370 Computing Information


We will be using the Intel PCs located in Sieg 232. Please do not eat or drink in the laboratory, and respect both the equipment and your fellow students.

These machines were donated to the department by Intel Corporation of Hillsboro, OR. 

Writing and Drawing Tools

All the computers in Sieg232 have Microsoft Office and other application software installed. Unless your handwriting is exceedingly legible, please use software tools to write up your assignments. We will not spend time trying to decipher poor writing.

The MSOffice software was donated to the department by Microsoft Corporation of Redmond, WA. 

Logic Design Tools

We will be using Foundation from Xilinx Corporation. Xilinx has some information on the software here. Foundation is an industry-strength tool that Xilinx donated to the CSE department. It contains *many* features-- we will primarily be using the schematic entry tool, simulator, and Verilog support. We use Foundation for CSE467 and CSE477, so learning it in CSE370 will be valuable for future classes. With Foundation and a word processor you can draw and simulate your designs and incorporate the schematic and simulator output into your assignment write-ups.
Version 3.1 of Foundation is installed in Sieg 232 and Sieg 329. There is a FAQ page located here.
Information on the student version of Foundation is located here.

There is a Verilog reference manual located here and a tutorial located here.
