This paper covers an international collaborative teaching project involving the design of a state-of-the-art microprocessor and embedded system between the University of New South Wales, Manchester University and the Imperial College, London University. This project, being the first of its kind anywhere in the world, provides an environment that replicates the current industrial practice in embedded system design in an easy and comprehensible setting; an environment where the processor, dedicated coprocessors and software are all integrated to create a functional system such as used in sophisticated electronic devices, including mobile phones, webphones, photocopiers, televisions, digital cameras and PDAs. We see such collaboration as important in both reducing development costs in developing up to date - and increasingly sophisticated - courses as well as fostering good relations between peer departments.
