Dot Matrix VHDL and FPGA Course

 Warning: additional cost!

Lattice Semiconductor now charges over $350/year for the iCEcube2 software used in this course. It was free until April 2024.

Get serious about VHDL and join the Dot Matrix course today! See you on the inside 🙂.

What you'll get:

  • Access to 126 video lessons over 17 sections
    (average duration 8:50 minutes)
  • Git repository with the code for every lesson
  • Schematic and layout for the breadboard
  • Supporting documents within the lectures
  • Certificate of Achievement after you complete the course

This is a one-time payment. You will only be charged the quoted amount when purchasing this course.

Obsoletion discount

Coupon code: DOTMATRIX50

I'm offering a 50% discount on this course because some original parts have become obsolete, including the 8x8 display.

But you can do the Dot Matrix course as a pure simulation exercise without building the physical prototype. We only use the hardware in the last of the 17 sections of the course.

The first 16 sections are simulation and synthesis exercises in the simulator and the Lattice implementation software (ModelSim, iCEcube2, and Synplify Pro).

You can find equivalent parts if you still want to build the prototype. It will work with a 5x7 LED display as well. I have updated the Read-only memory / Character map package lesson with an additional VHDL package that renders all characters on the smaller display.

What People Are Saying:

This course makes for an amazing head start introduction into the world of FPGA engineering. In areas like these, it is best to stay ahead of the curve and be thorough, as this will save you lots of time (and maybe money!) in the long run.

Even though I’m a VHDL old-timer with 18 years of experience, I have found inspiration and new ideas from following the lectures. While other tutorials or learning resources focus on language syntax, this course teaches you how to approach a VHDL project.
