For 2018

ODE solver with HPS input/output (3 weeks, start day 1) Lorenz system with 3D imaging

PDE wave equation solver HPS interface, nonlinear drum with audio bus-master (3 weeks)
use 2D digital waveguide formulation

ARM+FPGA+Qsys Mandelbrot video bus_master + HPS mouse (3 weeks)

---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.
