Integrated design of hardware system is an important practical course of computer disciplinary. It plays an important role in training students' professional ability of hardware system design and writing document. By solving complex problems, students can make comprehensive use of some basic courses of hardware development, digital logic, single-chip microcomputer principle and technology, fundamentals computer composition, and computer architecture to achieve a deep apprehension.
Students need making comprehensive use of hardware system design methodology to complete circuit design or software design based on hardware development and functional test, and then writing a report according to the design process. Teachers need to instruct students during these processes and to assess student’s performance in these processes and design defense.
