Guidelines: Each project is to be done by a group of two students. The projects
are to be implemented in any of the programming language: C, C++, Java. Some
projects are theoretical work. Each project work carries documentation in the form of
a project report to be submitted in printed form - A4 size with soft binding. The
project report structure is:
List of Semester Projects for Computer
September 18, 2013
- Objective: (The objective describes the goal of the project work.)
- Theory: (The theory is formal design comprising descriptions, essential
mathematics, formulas, drivations, etc.)
- Design: (The design part comprises flow-charts, algorithms, tables,
diagrams, derivations, etc.)
- Implementation: (The implementation is description of functional
modules of code, hierarchical relationship, coding with built-in
documentation, list of system requirements, like compilers, operating
- Debugging-Test-run: (The Test-run and result part of the report
contains detailed method of testing, assuring that the code is fool-proof
and fully debugged.)
- Results analysis (if any): (The Analysis part should discuss other
aspects, like complexity of algorithms in terms of average and worst case
complexity for time and space, robutsness of the approach used, finer
technical details, etc.)
- Conclusion and Future Improvements: (The conclusion and future
aspect should summarize the project in brief, what improvements can be
possible which could not be considered due to time limits, limitations (if
any in the design and implementation), various applications of this design,
- Bibliography: The bibliography section should provide the detailed list
of references of books, journals, websites, conferences, and others in the
standard accepted formats.
The report should have a front cover in the standard form, generally used for
seminar/dissertation, giving project title, class, name of student, guide, name of
Institution, year, and month & year of submission, all in standard acceptable
Note: Some of the projects may be done totally theoretical, and no coding
be done. But, they should be exhaustive in mathematical and descriptive
- of Projects:
- Design and computer architecture: Design a processor with minimum
number of instructions, so that it can do the basic arithmatic and logic
- Design a serial interface to connect the 8085 micro-processor with a
keyboard for that on pressing of enter key of keyboard, it can receive the
- Design and pipeline architecture for 2,3,4 stages pipeline.
- Using microprogram as instructions directly: Consider that there is no
"instruction set", no program counter (but microprogram counter), no
instruction fetch in the normal sense. Your machine and "program" is
THE microprogram itself. You have to add some fields into microprogram
word such as : ADD R0, R1, R2 which hold the appropriate values.
- Give a comparative study of 8085, 6502, and NSC micro-processors
- Design a Turing machine using java, to implement basic operations of TM.
- Write program to generate assembly code from prefix code.
- Simulate a word multiplier.
- Simulate a word divider.
- Suggest a high speed addition method and logic for 4-bit addition.
- Microprocessor-based automatic door opener.
- Microprocessor based furnance temperature controller.
- Microprocessor based water level controller in domestic water storage tank
(when water goes above a height, it switches off the pump motor, and
when it goes below some level, it switches ON the pump motor).
- Microprocessor based automatic attendance recorder (make use of RFID:
a unique for each student).
- Microprocessor based ECG recorder.
- Design and implement an arbitrary precision four function calculator.
- Stack machine ISA : Design a stack machine, its instruction set must be
stack oriented (no register!).
- Implement quick sort using 8085 assembly language.
- Implemet binary search using 8085 assembly language.
- Implement matrix multiplication using 8085 assembly language.
- Design a instruction set for a limited functionality machine having all
instructions of 8-bits fixed length only, including opcode and operands.
- Write/create a tool for bench-marking of a hardware (CPU).
- Suggest and design a minimal cpu architecture for controlling the washing
- Simulate modern traffic controlsystem.
- Project for piano sound generation.
- Quantum Compters.
- DNA Computers.
- Construct an interpretor written in C language to interpret an assembly
language based on the following basic instructions for a machine having only
one register, which is accumulator, and all the operands are in memory:
|Opcode, operand|| comment
| ADD X ||Add memory location x into acc.
| SUB X || Substract X from Acc. |
| MUL X || Multiply X with Axcc.
| DIV X || Divide acc. by X.
| AND X || And X with acc. |
| NOT X || Complement acc.
| OR X || Or X with acc. |
| LD X ||Load memory location X at acc.
| ST X ||Store acc. at memory location X
Note: You are required to study about these projects, explore, think, and try to find out
how they will be carried out. Make assuptions where details are not provided or go as
per what is standard. You will mail your options (1st, 2nd, 3rd) at/after
9.30 PM, 20th Sept. 2013, to choose the project. The alloted project on
choice and FCFS (first-come first-served) will be communicated to you in
reply. In case not available, you will have to communicate other choices.
