From zero to VHDL designer. Learn how to implement your VHDL design on FPGA starting from scratch
How many times you waste your time in finding some examples useful to resolve your VHDL problems and didn`t get anything useful?
Nowadays we are in a “lucky period” because we can get any information we need with few clicks of the mouse. With respect to few years ago, when the access to the information was very difficult, now we can have the possibility to have good material fast and for free.
But… There is the other side of the coin.
It is true that we have a lot of information for free, but not all the information we have is a good stuff. Many times we need a huge amount of time to filter good stuff from a useless material. Even if we get the information for free we often don`t think about to the time we are wasting and to the "equivalent money" we are losing wasting this time.
In Surf-VHDL, we have more than 15 years in FPGA/ASIC VHDL design.
In this course, you will learn the basic rules to implement and efficient hardware design and how to apply these rules using VHDL.
Entity / Architecture pair definition
VHDL Coding Style: Structural, Behavioral, Sequential
Event and Transaction
Delay Modeling: Inertial vs Transport delay
Concurrent Conditional Signal Assignment
Understanding Driver & Source concept
Parametric Design: Generics
VHDL Types and Data object
VHDL Types of Data Object: Signal, Variable, Constant and FILE
Type bit vs ulogic vs std_logic
Signed and Unsigned Data Types
Type Conversion and Type Casting
Sequential Conditional Statement: IF and CASE
Sequential-Iterative Statement: FOR and WHILE
The Assert Statement
Sequential WAIT Statement
Sensitivity List vs WAIT Statement
Procedure and Function
Concurrent iterative Statement FOR GENERATE
Concurrent conditional Statement IF GENERATE
TextIO package: Read/Write from file
Test bench design and simulation
In the LAB section you will learn how to implement:
Heart-bit design: let`s start with a blinking led
Seven segment display: write a VHDL code and drive a seven segment display
UART: learn how to implement a UART 16650 compatible with internal FIFO
Command Parser: VHDL design that contains the LAB above. Connect your board to a PC and start communicate with it.
All the LABs are provided with the VHDL code that you have to complete and simulate.
In the LAB videos there will be addressed the exercise solution: you will learn how to implement the lab VHDL code, simulate and layout on FPGA
