This program will help students to achieve solid understanding how modern digital circuits can be built using Verilog Hardware Description Language (HDL) and tested with FPGA devices. We will start from basic digital devices described with Verilog and evaluated on FPGA development boards. Next step will involve more complex digital circuits, including system-on-chip (SoC) based on SCR1 microprocessor - open source and free to use RISC-V compatible MCU core, designed by Syntacore company. The course is based on regular classes held in SPbPU and will be carried out by very experienced and highly qualified experts.
The course content includes:
- FPGA-based digital design with Verilog HDL
Part of the course related to FPGA-based digital design starts with a brief overview of the ASIC production and FPGA prototyping and then covers basics of the FPGA-based digital design with Verilog hardware description language.
- Measuring automatization based on LabView
During the measurement automation classes, students will become familiar with visual programming in the LabVIEW platform and learn how to work with integrated circuits via serial communication interfaces, such as SPI and I2C.
- Physical processing simulation on ANSYS
- Microelectronics circuits computer simulation
- Organics electronics basics (materials, devices and current trends)
Students receive or expand their knowledge on structure, properties and main production technologies of materials, learn about manufacturing technologies of components and devices of organic electronics, get state-of-the-art information about advantages, disadvantages and prospective applications of the organic electronic devices.
