- Course objectives
- Within this course the students will obtain deeper knowledge on the field of programmable structures (e.g. FPGAs) and get familiar with advanced methods of hardware design using hardware description languages. Verilog HDL is used to demonstrate most of the principles.
- Programmable structures fundamentals.
- Verilog HDL – concepts, basic syntax, abstraction levels, design hierarchy.
- Designing in Verilog – combinational primitives, sequential circuits, state machine design.
- FPGA devices – capabilities, limitations, programming. Advanced features in Verilog, best practice.
- Prefabricated components – IP cores, Megafunctions.
- Interfaces & Peripherals – RS232, LCD, keyboard.
- Introduction to VHDL.
- Sofcore computing – introduction to NIOS2 processor system.
- Practical tasks in Quartus II suite.
