Description

Version: 2.0 start 01 February 2022

 

Short description

In this module a digital audio synthesizer is realized as a project on a programmable device (FPGA). Basic elements of digital technology such as combinatorial logic, digital counters and automats are applied playfully and creatively.

Module coordinator

Module contents

Theoretical knowledge in digital technology (DT), which was acquired in the last semester, is tested in practice in this project course. At the same time, the necessary skills for structuring as well as writing and giving oral presentations during project implementation will be developed.

 

Project scope:

·       Conception, design, realization and testing of an audio synthesizer. The minimum features are DDS, Midi Decoder, Codec Controller, I2S Master; depending on the learning success, extra features can also be built in such as Melody Box, Play Recorder, LCD Display, FM Synthesis, Envelope.

·       Getting to know and installing various building blocks and their functional principles: Audio codec, I2C, I2S, DDS, Midi, FM synthesis

·       Plan VHDL Simulations and Design Test Benches

·       Document and present project results

·       Communicate in project teams

Teaching materials

The project audio synthesizer is realized on a programmable digital device (FPGA).
