The first exam was in-class on Thursday, March 8, 2018. It will cover everything up to and including performance analysis (not the assembly language material currently being covered in class). Class on Tuesday, March 6, will be review for the exam -- including review of Assignment 2.

There was no class on Tuesday, January 30 nor on Thursday, February 1 (Professor Dietz was at at the Electronic Imaging 2018 conference). Make-up class times will be announced.

All course materials will be posted here. We have been making incremental changes to this course since the introduction of the common first year for engineering, and it appears we might now be ready for a bigger change to ease the transition between 380 and 480. In particular, we'll be adding some Verilog... so keep watching here.
