Title: Hardware Specialist / Laboratory Instructor at the University of Waterloo in Electrical & Computer Engineering.
Education: BASc in Electrical Engineering with a smattering of Computer Science, Kinesiology and other courses
I am now heavily involved with the digital courses: ECE 223, ECE 222, SE 141
Some of those courses use programmable logic chips (Xilinx & Altera FPGAs, GALs) and I've been involved with that technology since the early 90's.
ECE 222 uses the Motorola Coldfire microprocessor. I used to maintain a web site of information about the Coldfire processor and software.
ECE 223, ECE 324, ECE 327 use programmable logic. Currently ECE 223, 324, 325 and SE 141 all use the Altera DE2 FPGA board.
