University of California, Berkeley uses AWS Educate and Amazon FPGA Instances in Undergraduate Computer Architecture Course

As the spring 2019 semester began, 60 plus junior and senior computer science students at the University of California, Berkeley started their “Computer Science 152” course. An elective within the Computer Science (CS) division, the class consists of a series of lab assignments aimed to teach computer architecture and major concepts used in modern microprocessors. In CS152, students study real RISC-V microprocessor designs implemented in the Chisel hardware description language, and simulate them with FireSim, which runs on Amazon Web Services (AWS) F1 instances in the cloud.
