Introduction to Gatekeeper

 

The BEST Robotics motto has always been “no robot left behind”. One challenge
remains: Squeaky, the original BEST robot needs serious upgrades to become Squeaky
2.0.

 
• Squeaky (Seen below), the original BEST robot needs upgrades to become Squeaky 2.0.
 

• All other upgrades have been completed, but one component is missing:  the BEST CPU.
 
• We are here to help in building the newest and fastest CPU on the market.

  

Objectives of Gatekeeper:

Stage 1: Gate Fabrication

Collect transistors and place them into designated receptacles within the Gate Fabrication Area to be converted into the desired logic gates. Transistors may be converted into the following logic gates: AND, OR, NOT, and NAND.

 

 Stage 2: Integrated Circuit (IC) Fabrication

We collect logic gates and place them in the proper combinations within the IC Fabrication Area to be converted into the desired integrated circuits, or "ICs".

Logic gates may be converted into the following ICs: Multiplexers (MUX), Adders, Decoders, and Data Latches (D-Latch).

 

Stage 3: CPU Fabrication

We place ICs within the CPU Fabrication area to be converted into the components necessary for a CPU. ICs may be converted into the following CPU components: Registers, Arithmetic Logic Units (ALUs), Instruction Decoders, Memory Units, and Address Decoders.
