Northern Arizona University FPGA Capstone

Welcome to the FPGA Capstone web page

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a large and ever-growing facet of our society. It consists of a massive web of inter-connected electronic devices. These devices can range from household appliances to specialized sensor nodes. These devices often have continuous data streams flowing into and out of them. Current microprocessor hardware is ill-suited to these continuous streaming data applications. In order to force these outdated hardware architectures to meet the needs of IoT devices, programmers must use unintuitive and unadaptable programming methods. The goal of this project is to reassess and redesign the architecture of the microprocessor hardware itself and provide a software framework such that IoT devices can be easily conceptualized and implemented while remaining flexible to system changes.
