Compact VerilogFreiburg / Frankfurt / Stuttgart
The continuously rising demand for highly complex programmable logic in combination with ever increasing clock rates creates new challenges for the users. Speed, flexibility and highest quality results are crucial factors for the economic success of a company. To achieve these goals, users must adopt modern and powerful hardware description language (HDL) based design techniques. A shortening of the development time as well as high quality designs can both be obtained with a Verilog based approach.
The PLC2 workshop “Compact Verilog” teaches the participant the Verilog syntax and its usage. The attendee learns the basic description elements as well as the application areas of this hardware programming language. The theoretical content is complemented with PC based exercises. For synthesis and simulation a maximum of two participants work together at one PC. During a series of labs the participants will describe multiple Verilog modules that build together a complex design. The development cycle will be completed by implementing and porting this onto the provided FPGA evaluation board, thus allowing to also learn about the configuration mechanism and to test the loaded design on real hardware.
