Originating from the BSEE Senior Capstone Design Project class, the objective of the 2023-2024 Senior Electronics Engineering design project was to implement an efficiently functioning and user-friendly Tetris program on a DE-10 Lite FPGA development board with a connected XBee Pro input shield to receive mechanical input from users. In the 2023- 2024 academic year, the capstone design students started the design after a successful unification, the two teams created the application for the Tetris game using the unified development platform. At the end of 2023, the Capstone Design teams developed the retro style classic game Tetris on the development platform. The 2023-2024 senior Electronics Engineering students were split into two teams to develop the same project through two different design solutions. Each team went through the conceptualization, design, and development of their respective projects. The Senior Capstone Design project is unique due to it being the first plug and play retro style design using Intel DE-10 FPGA board. The goal for the project was to develop a product that performed beyond the capabilities of previous year’s Senior class. The Tetris project highlighted teams of students’ 3D design capabilities while developing an enclosure to accommodate the DE-10 Lite board with the input shield.
