EE 476: Laboratory 7
For this exercise, we want you to pick a project, then design and build
it. During this period there will be no other assignments, so we expect you
to spend all of your time for this course on the project. You will be expected
to be in lab at the usual times and to show significant progress
each week of the
project. Each week in lab a one-page progress report will be due.
When choosing a project you will need to consider availability of hardware,
time available, and your programming skill.
You may want to look at several of the
links on the 476 home page for project ideas.
Depends on what you will build. You should talk often to your lab instructor.
You will be graded on several aspects of the project:
The web page may optionally be submitted
for inclusion on the class web page. If you wish to do this, put all of your web
page files in one directory, ZIP the directory and email it to BRL4@cornell.edu.
Since the pages will be on a UNIX server, you should make sure the cases (upper/lower)
of the filenames agree and use only alphanumeric characters, periods, and underscores
in the filenames. Check all your links to make sure they are relative to your
- Appropriate level of hardware/software complexity.
- A project which works according to specification (which you will write).
- Level of effort and organization shown in lab.
- A demonstration of the final project during the last regular scheduled
lab period of the semester. The demonstration will include an explanation
of your web page describing the project.
- Completeness and understandability of the final report. The report must
be handed in when you do the project demo during your last regular lab period.
The report which you hand in must be printed directly from a web page which
you construct. Documentation must include:
- Introduction -- what you did and why.
- High level design -- rationale, math, logical structure.
- Program/hardware design -- program details, hardware details.
- Results of the design -- speeds, accuracy, usability, etc.
- What you would do different next time.
- Appendix with listing
- Appendix with schematics
