FPGA and VHDL Fast-Track: Hands-On for Absolute Beginners
Learn the basics of VHDL in a few evenings!
Are you familiar with programming but new to VHDL?
Do you need a short introduction to this unfamiliar subject?
Is your schedule full with no time left to study?
Understand the basics of FPGA development using VHDL in a few evenings! This course is for students and IT professionals who need a fast run-down of the subject. With this course and the low-cost Lattice iCEstick development board, you will be developing real hardware within hours.
Understand the hardware
I use animations and straightforward language to explain how the basic components found inside of every FPGA work.
Write the VHDL code
You will write relevant VHDL code for our project while learning one or two new VHDL concepts in each coding lecture.
Program the FPGA
Fast-Track is a hands-on course. You will see the results of your VHDL code on the 7-segment display right from the start.
Affordable FPGA development board
At only $49, The Lattice iCEstick USB-pluggable development board is perfect for beginners. You can also use it for more complex projects, including my advanced follow-up course: The Dot matrix VHDL and FPGA Course.
Easy-to-use software tools
The Lattice iCEcube2 design software used in this course is intuitive and easy to use. It is free of unnecessary features that will distract you from learning FPGA design. You also learn to use a free edition of ModelSim, one of the most popular VHDL simulators.
