The ﬁrst version of the Senior processor was created as part of a thesis
projectin 2007. This processor was completed and used for educational purposes
atLinköpings University. In 2008 several parts of the processor were optimized
andthe processor expanded with additional functionality as part of another
thesisproject. In 2009 an EU funded project called MULTI-BASE started, in which
theComputer Division at the Department of Electrical Engineering participated
in.For their part of the MULTI-BASE project, the Senior processor was selected
tobe used. After continuous revision and development, this processor was sent
The assignment of this thesis project was to test and verify the diﬀerent func-tions implemted in the Senior processor. To do this a PCB was developed fortesting the Senior processor together with a Virtex-4 FPGA. Extensive testingwas done on the most important functions of the Senior processor. These testsshowed that the manufactured Senior processor works as designed and that it alonecan perform larger calculations and use external hardware accelerators with thehelp of its various interfaces.
