VEC101E: Advanced VHDL Training

Fpga programming courses series

In this VHDL advanced training you will learn & practice efficient coding techniques for writing synthesizable VHDL for programmable logic devices (FPGAs & CPLDs). While the concepts presented will mainly target Intel® (Altera®) FPGA devices using the Quartus® Prime software, many can be applied to other devices & synthesis tools.

It’s showing a VHDL simulation by Modelsim done during Vhdl advanced training

You will gain experience writing behavioral & structural code & learn to effectively code common logic functions including registers, memory, & arithmetic functions.


You will use VHDL constructs to parameterize your designs to increase their flexibility & reusability.


You will also be introduced to testbenches, VHDL constructs used to build them, & common ways to write them. The exercises will use the Quartus Prime software version to process VHDL code & ModelSim®-Intel® software for simulation.


Course duration: 2 days
