Research Topic: Development of a Co-Design Learning Environment

Thesis Research:
Co-design is the art of developing an application that involves using an amalgamation of both hardware and software. Non-critical requirements are delegated to a general-purpose processing engine, such as a microcontroller or microprocessor, whereas time critical performance intensive tasks are offloaded to some form of hardware, integrated with the software component. The goal is to build a feature rich prototype platform that will provide students with enough flexibility and functionality to allow them to learn about these technologies, while developing and deploying ideas of their own.
