This page is a list of project ideas. Many of these are designed to help future to students learn to use Convey.

Tutorials

Tutorials should have one tutorial document and one or more examples to help the user to check their work.

Tutorial 2: Memory Controllers

Project description: This tutorial would follow the same structure as tutorial 1. It would have 2 parts: a and b. Part a: start by using the newCnyProject script and end with a personality that writes 8 bytes to memory. Part b: start from the end of part a and end with a personality that reads 8 bytes from memory.

The deliverables would be a tutorial document and 2 examples. The 2 examples would be what the tutorial user should have at the end of part a and b.
