FPGA Design for Embedded Systems Specialization
Decode the Secrets of the FPGA in Embedded Systems. Enhance career opportunities and build better systems by acquiring skill in FPGA design.
What you will learn
Create in the FPGA a working system on a chip design with Nios II soft processor, RAM and FLASH memory, and several peripherals.
Understand and practice all aspects of FPGA development, including conception, design, implementation, and debugging.
Understand the rationale for each phase of the hardware development flow, including fitting, timing constraints, simulation, and programming.
Apply hierarchical design methods to create bigger designs in VHDL or Verilog
Skills you will gain
About this Specialization
Applied Learning Project
Learners will practice building and testing several FPGA projects using industry standard FPGA hardware development tools by applying skills including VHDL and Verilog coding, programmable logic synthesis and simulation, static timing analysis and FPGA device programming. The culmination of these efforts will be the construction of a configurable softcore processor system on a chip using the DE10-Lite evaluation board.
How the Specialization Works
A Coursera Specialization is a series of courses that helps you master a skill. To begin, enroll in the Specialization directly, or review its courses and choose the one you'd like to start with. When you subscribe to a course that is part of a Specialization, you’re automatically subscribed to the full Specialization. It’s okay to complete just one course — you can pause your learning or end your subscription at any time. Visit your learner dashboard to track your course enrollments and your progress.
Every Specialization includes a hands-on project. You'll need to successfully finish the project(s) to complete the Specialization and earn your certificate. If the Specialization includes a separate course for the hands-on project, you'll need to finish each of the other courses before you can start it.
Earn a Certificate
When you finish every course and complete the hands-on project, you'll earn a Certificate that you can share with prospective employers and your professional network.
There are 4 Courses in this Specialization
