2007-10-19 - An alternative version of the Verilog
download (game_of_life_alt.zip) for Lab 2 has been
provided since some people are having problems synthesising the design
from the original version. Further testing will be take place in the
next few days
2007-10-24 - Testing of the alternative Game of Life zip file
indicated that it worked ok but was using a slightly old version of
the processor. A new Quartus Archive
has been prepared which contains the latest version of the processor
and it has been tested. Hopefully there will be no further glitches.
Acknowledgements: Many thanks to Ben Roberts and Greg Chadwick for refining the MIPS processor design and preparing the
laboratory material. Thanks are also due to Robin Message and David Simner for their initial MIPS processor design and tool chain.
We are very grateful to several people at Altera for technical advice, continued financial support and boards at low cost.
