HDL Designer Series

Categories: FPGA, HDL & Other Languages

This class teaches you to use HDL Designer Series effectively in your FPGA or ASIC design process. The lecture takes you through the HDL Designer Series design flow. This includes modeling the design with both graphics and text, generating HDL, and then simulating and animating the design to verify behavior. View course details ↓
