DIGITAL DESIGN WITH PROGRAMMABLE LOGIC
Credit points: 15
This subject introduces programmable logic and VHDL. Students will be able to develop solutions to digital design problems using reliable synchronous digital design. A modular, reusable approach is encouraged. A strong emphasis is placed on the design and implementation of working hardware implementations on Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) using a suite of Electronic Design Automation (EDA) software tools
