VHDL Logical Synthesis and Simulation for AMD FPGA design


5 days - 35 hours


  • After completing this training, you will have the skills to:
    • 1 - Understand the architecture of a Series-7 FPGA
    • 2 - Understand the multiple possibilities offered by the VHDL language and understand the concepts of logic synthesis
    • 3 - Know the writing styles and their impact on the quality of the synthesis results
    • 4 - Handle development tools and implementation reports
    • 5 - Understand the multiple simulation possibilities offered by the VHDL language and build efficient testbenches


  • This training is intended to electronic engineers who already have a good knowledge in designing digital electronic circuits, who are willing to acquire a strong designing methodology, and to take the best of VHDL language and the associated synthesis and simulation tools for designing AMD FPGA.
