Takes place in the week: 29th August 2022 - 2nd September 2022


This lab emphasizes on the practical aspects of Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs). In the beginning, a short background discussion of FPGAs is given, followed by a tutorial on the workflow of configuring and programming an FPGA. This lab includes FPGA design using schematic layouts as well as several example of VHDL/Verilog programming to implement some sample digital circuits. Students will be exposed to the processes used to design and simulate FPGAs as well as compile their design and see it run on an actual FPGA. The lab is designed around the DE2-115 prototyping board, which provides a programmer, program memory, and array of switches, buttons, LEDs, an LCD, and several I/O ports.

Organisational issues

As a full week block after the end of lectures.Since the number of seats is limited, a registration for this laboratory in the campussystem is necessary.
