VHDL Advanced

You will learn & practice efficient coding techniques for writing synthesizable VHDL for programmable logic devices (FPGAs & CPLDs). While the concepts presented will mainly target Altera® FPGA devices using the Quartus® II software, many can be applied to other devices & synthesis tools. You will gain experience writing behavioral & structural code & learn to effectively code common logic functions including registers, memory, & arithmetic functions. You will use VHDL constructs to parameterize your designs to increase their flexibility & reusability. You will also be introduced to testbenches, VHDL constructs used to build them, & common ways to write them. The exercises will use the Quartus II software version to process VHDL code & ModelSim®-Altera software for simulation.

At Course Completion you will be able to:

  • Develop coding styles for efficient synthesis when:
  • Targeting device features.
  • Inferring logic functions.
  • Using arithmetic operators.
  • Writing state machines.
  • Use Quartus II software RTL Viewer to verify correct synthesis results.
  • Incorporate Altera structural blocks in VHDL designs.
  • Write simple testbenches for verification.
  • Create parameterized designs.


We recommend completing the following courses:

Skills Required

  • Completion of the "Introduction to VHDL" course or some prior knowledge and use of VHDL.
  • Background in digital logic design.
  • Understanding of synthesis and simulation processes.
