New FPGA Course Dates

We are pleased to announce new dates for our popular FPGA courses, Introduction to Quartus Prime and Introduction to Xilinx Vivado.  As well as giving you the chance to attend we would appreciate it if you would forward this to any colleagues who might be interested in attending.

These courses will run on the following dates, at STFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, UK:

  • 15-16 May 2017, Introduction to FPGA Design Using Quartus Prime
  • 27-28 June 2017, Introduction to FPGA Design Using Xilinx Vivado
  • 20-21 November 2017, Introduction to FPGA Design Using Xilinx Vivado      
  • 22-23 November 2017, Introduction to FPGA Design Using Quartus Prime

The Vivado course has been updated to version 2016.4 and uses the Digilent ZYBO board. This board is yours to take away at the end of the course.

The Quartus course has had a significant upgrade to cover v16.1 and uses the Terasic DE1-SoC board which, as with the Xilinx course, is yours to take away at the end of the course. This version of Quartus is the first to bear the Intel brand and has the Quartus Prime name, the flow is essentially unchanged from recent versions.

The DE1-SoC is based around the Altera Cyclone V SoC part and features an ARM processor system in addition to the FPGA fabric. Note that we will not make use of the ARM processors during the course.

The FPGA fabric has 85K Logic Elements and is connected to 64MB of off chip memory. There is a further 1GB of DDR3 for the Hard Processor System and the board features the usual array of external connectors, buttons and LEDs.
