Introduction to the development of hardware emulators / simulators. Specifically this semester, the class will develop an emulator based on the NES.

The objective of the course is to develop a project large enough that students need to work in groups, share tasks, organize deliveries and plan development. It is important to understand the context and how the components are interconnected to develop a large system, especially when it comes to different hardware components that need to be simulated.

Documentation available online as links below:

The course will include deliveries / presentations of group work. The size of the groups will be up to 4 students, defined in the first class of the semester. The groups must make a fortnightly presentation of the progress of the project, where the last evaluation of the month will result in a score to compose the evaluation of the group. Each student's contribution will be assessed by producing code in the group's repository. There is no exam in the discipline. The average of the students will be the average of the marks of each evaluation. The dates of all evaluations are on the calendar at the bottom of this page.

This is a 12 credit course with 4 face-to-face credits on Fridays from 19:00 pm to 23:00 pm. Attendance is mandatory in classes, where the activities will be presented / delivered. The remaining 8 hours must be done in agreement with the group members.
