This book is a practical guide to designing a CPU using Altera Quartus II software which is free. Readers need the Terasic DE2 or DE2-115 in order to accomplish the assignments given in the laboratory work sheets. The concept is not the same as normal manufacturers' tutorial which is completely guided. Only reference circuit diagrams are provided but only at the later stages. The design assignment starts at implementing an immediate load instruction. It is based on Mano's RISC architecture but unlike Mano's book, jump and conditional jumps reference circuits are provided as guidance. Each reader should be able to adapt the questions to design various versions of the CPU. The questions are actually directed at students, not individual readers but individuals and hobbyists should be able to use these work sheets. The experiments in the work sheets had been tested on Computer Engineering Students at Universiti Malaysia Sabah. The book consists of chapters of complete laboratory worksheets, assignments and a Bison assembler source-code. Lecturers can use these course-works as references in designing a practical course on designing a microprocessor. The author who was the instructor, inserts comments in strategic places in the worksheets.
