Design MU0 - a simple microprocessor with FPGA

Logo for Design MU0 - a simple microprocessor with FPGA
This tutorial will cover the design of a simple system-on-a-chip in VHDL, with an emphasis on the development and simulation of a testbench for the mu0 microprocessor. The mu0 and its associated RAM is treated as black boxes, and a testbench is developed around them. The VHDL design of the mu0 can be downloaded from the webpage.

Nice tutorial for the time period it was written. Tools are dated but nice step by step instructions. I have introduced my students to very similar information.

Technical Remarks:

Initially tutorial didn't show up got some different page.
