Electrical and Computer Engineering In The News
Imagination Technologies (IMG.L) announces the launch of MIPSfpga 2.0, the next generation of its highly successful CPU education infrastructure. MIPSfpga 2.0 represents a comprehensive set of teaching materials for teaching computer architecture – including full, open access to a MIPS CPU to let students see the actual RTL code and study the inner workings of the processor. MIPSfpga 2.0 is part of the Imagination University Programme (IUP), which provides students with a unique opportunity to learn using a commercially available CPU architecture.
Among the implausible and impossible, countless curiosities mingled beneath the metal shadow of the famed unisphere at the 1964 World’s Fair.
With Amazon Alexa, developers are creating novel and delightful voice experiences for customers. University students are rethinking the way we live. Meet Adam Betemedhin, an Electrical Engineering major, and Kevin Duong-Tran, a Computer Science major, from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV). Adam and Kevin, along with roughly 20 other students from multi-disciplinary backgrounds at UNLV, are participating in the 2017 Solar Decathlon, a competition sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy that will culminate in October of this year.
When Jay Sarno opened Circus Circus casino in 1968, he charged an admission fee to visitors. “He thought it was so unique and wonderful that people would pay to go in,” says UNLV history professor Eugene Moehring.
For decades after their introduction in the 1960s, commercial supercomputers were considered mysterious oracles of computation, dedicated to solving a small class of numeric problems and reserved for the dedicated use of a single organization or department. Every system was lovingly handmade from esoteric, bespoke processor, I/O and cooling components.
