Do you feel you've learned enough about microcontrollers? Do you want to learn more embedded application design techniques? How about a technique that will allow you to design high-performance systems the way professional equipment designers do?
If you're still interested, this curriculum is for you. The FPGA Embedded Design series will teach you the exquisite art of FPGA design.
So what is an FPGA anyway?
Before moving on, let me tell you that an FPGA is not a microcontroller. It's not a computer. Well, at least not if you don't want it to be a microcontroller or computer.
The simplest explanation of an FPGA I've found is that it's a shape shifter! It's an integrated circuit that will behave as the logic circuit you'd like, and the way of letting it know the desired behavior is, yes, you guessed it, through programming.
But you will not do this with a Programming Language, but with a Hardware Description Language!
In this course, you'll learn Verilog, which is one of the most widely used Hardware Description Languages (along with VHDL). You'll learn the concurrent paradigm in the Verilog code and how to design digital systems with this powerful language. You'll also learn that there are many purposes of an HDL: System design, simulation, implementation in either a traditional chip, or the popular FPGA alternative.
Don't let this opportunity pass. Take the first step into the other side of embedded systems: FPGA Embedded Design.
