Do you like to start with VHDL without pain?

Here you can watch a complete example about how to implement your first VHDL design on FPGA.

You will learn step by step how to implement a simple VHDL design on FPGA starting from the architecture definition to the FPGA layout.

During this course, you will learn how to:

  • Define hardware architecture
  • Write the VHDL code
  • Simulate your VHDL code using ModelSim
  • Debug the VHDL code
  • Layout on FPGA
  • Test the design

You start to learn how to write a good VHDL/RTL and how to approach the FPGA world.

In the VHDL Syntax section you can learn the VHDL Syntax, all what you need to start with VHDL

Happy learning!

You can start from here if you already know the basic of VHDL. If you need to know the VHDL Syntax you can start from "VHDL Syntax" section and learn the basic of VHDL.

I hope you enjoy the course!

Let's start to learn good practice for digital design implementation. You can apply this methodology to all your other work

Lesson 01 - How to Start a Good VHDL Design

In this second video you will learn how to implement VHDL test bench for your design and start to simulate it using ModelSim. At the end of the video you will be able to

  • setup a VHDL test bench
  • simulate the design
  • create ModelSim simulation script
Lesson 02 - How to simulate your VHDL design using ModelSim

After VHDL Design and Simulation is the time to Layout the VHDL code on FPGA. In this video you will learn how to:

  • create a complete Quartus II project
  • Layout the VHDL code on FPGA
  • setup the pin-out
  • create Quartus II script file.

During the VHDL design test you will find a problem…

Lesson 03 - Layout and Test VHDL Design on DE0 Altera Board

Introduce the debounce logic in order to filter external spikes

Lesson 04 - Introduce de-bouncer

Layout fixed version of design and test on DE0 altera board

Lesson 05 - Simulate, Layout and Test
1 Lecture 03:56

When you simulate your VHDL code, sometimes you need to export your simulation result or to read the input stimuli from an external file. Let's see how we can do that.

The Easiest Way to Learn VHDL

We want to support FPGA/ASIC junior and, why not, senior hardware designers in finding examples and useful hints for their VHDL designs.

Our target is to enable you to “surf” the VHDL:

We made the VHDL learning experience as simple as it can be.

We are sharing with you everything that actually helped ourselves in mastering the VHDL.

We strongly believe in knowledge sharing as one of the most important means to improve this world.

We would very much appreciate your cooperation either by submitting your questions or by sharing the link to this website with friends and colleagues

Enjoy the experience!
