FPGA Design and Fabrication

The aim of this course is the students to acquire proficiency with Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA) and skills to creating prototypes or products for a wide variety of applications. Course covers whole process and steps needed to develop, design, simulate and program an FPGA chip. The modules, included in the course are introduction in the FPGA systems, hardware description languages for FPGA design, FPGA development tools flow, configurable embedded processors, use of soft-core and hard-core processors, FPGA System engineering, software-hardware integration and testing. In course are introduced basic sanity tests which final product should be able to pass after is been placed in designed enclosure.
