CSE370 Computing Information

Computing Platforms

We will be using the Intel PCs located in Sieg 232. These machines have been recently upgraded and should now be set up identically to those in Sieg 231. 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 the entire quarter, we will be using DesignWorks, a schematic capture and simulation tool from Capilano Computing. It also contains limited Verilog support, which we will use later in the quarter. You will use these tools to specify, and simulate your design and will incorporate schematics and simulator output into the write-up of your assignments.

DesignWorks has several reference manuals viewable with Adobe Acrobat Reader 3.0 (or newer, presumably), which are also available on the CSE department's instructional PCs:

If you're on one of the CSE department's instructional PCs, the manuals are also in a directory on the file server.
