CSE370 Computing Information

Computing Platforms

We will be using the Intel PCs located in Sieg 232. These machines have 64MB of RAM and 1.5GB hard drives in addition to their fast Pentium processors. They are also equipped with a 17-in color monitor. There will be no eating or drinking in the laboratory and you are expected to behave civilly at all times.

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

Writing and Drawing Tools

All the machines have Microsoft Office residing on their disks. This is a suite of tools that includes word processing and figure drawing programs that you will be expected to use for writing up your assignments (you may of course use equivalent software you may have on your home machine).

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

Logic Design Tools

For virtually the entire quarter we will be using a set of tools called Synario. These include a logic schematics editor, a compiler to programmable logic devices and field programmable gate arrays, an integrated logic simulator, and a state diagram drawing tool with its own compiler. You will use these tools to specify, synthesize, and simulate your design and will incorporate schematics, state diagrams, and simulator output into the write-up of your assignments.

These professional tools were donated to the department by Data-I/O Corporation of Redmond, WA.
