DTEK8048 FPGA Prototyping 5 ECTS
Organised by
Information and Communication Technology
Preceding studies
HDL Based Design and basic knowledge of digital system design.

Learning outcomes

To understand the basics of FPGA based prototyping and the functionality of FPGA devices as well as using the related tools. Coding for FPGAs, including implementation of logic, processor cores and software for the processor(s).


Structure and operation of FPGA devices, using them for prototyping and implementation of digital systems, using embedded processors in FPGAs (both hardcore and softcore) and related tool chains. Examples, exercises and project work will provide hands on experience. Basic knowledge of VHDL is mandatory.
