Digital System Des. With FPGAs

Programmable logic devices such as field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs), have become a major component of digital system design these days. The Course starts with an Introduction to the scope of Reconfigurable platforms and applications along with a complete FPGA design flow. Then use of a hardware description language (HDL; in particular Verilog) for the specification, synthesis, simulation, and exploration of principles of register transfer level (RTL) designs. In this class the students learn how to write HDL models that can be automatically synthesized into integrated circuits using FPGAs. Details of techniques to resolve common pitfalls in designing with FPGAs and best practices incorporated in Industry will be dealt with few case studies. Laboratory and homework exercises include writing HDL models of combinational and sequential circuits, synthesizing models, performing simulation, writing test bench modules, and synthesizing designs to an FPGA. The course also contains lab work and is based on a sequence of Verilog design examples leading to a final group project.
