FPGA Workshops and Courses

IPSES organizes workshops and courses on programmable logics, such as FPGA. Workshops include theoretical basis and practical demonstrations.

Workshop on "programmable logics"

Subjects discussed on this workshop are:

  • Theory of operating
  • Description of the circuit 
  • Hardware resources
  • Limits of programmable logics
  • Comparison between sequential and spatial technology
  • FPGA microprocessors
  • Hardware planning with FPGA
  • Practical demonstration: project flow
  • Market offer
  • Conclusions and further developments of the technology

Practical demonstrations showed

  • Flashing LED 
  • Two frequencies flashing LED 
  • Flashing LED with selectable frequency trough two pushbuttons
  • Management of a rotary encoder.
  • Generation of  VGA 640x480 @ 60Hz screens
  • Generations of VGA 800x600 @ 72Hz screens
  • Control of a rectangle trough rotary encoder on a VGA 640x480 screen
  • Microblaze (implementation of a FPGA microprocessor)

Workshop on "development using Xilinx FPGA"

Subjects discussed on this workshop are:

  • Main features of Xilinx FPGA 
  • The development environment: Xilinx ISE.
  • Use of the inner resources of the FPGA : Xilinx Architecture wizard.
  • The generator of hardware peripheral: Xilinx Core Generator.
  • Management of the hardware constraints: Xilinx Pace.
