For 2019

ODE floating point solver (Heun's method?) with HPS input/output (3 weeks, start day 1)
(Lorenz system with 3D imaging?)
-- required modelsim output from solver
-- required SignalTap output from solver and HPS interface
-- required power estimation
-- generate a *.SDC file for the design

PDE wave equation solver HPS interface, nonlinear drum with audio bus-master (3 weeks)
-- use 2D FDTD formulation
-- required power estimation

ARM+FPGA+Qsys Mandelbrot video bus_master +
-- require HPS mouse for zoom control (3 weeks)
-- required power estimation

---EACh lab will have graded weekly checkpoints.---

Approach: perhaps the emphasis should not be on flat-out performance, but on comparision of performance and analysis of bottlenecks in hardware and in software for a given, large, task. so, rather than saying "make me the biggest drum you can", say, "make a drum of size x on ARM and in hardware and compare speed, resource, bottlenecks, power.
