How to Begin a Simple FPGA Design (ODSW1010)

19 Minutes Online Course

Course Description

This training is for engineers who have never designed an FPGA before. You will learn about the basic benefits of designing with FPGAs and how to create a simple FPGA design using the Intel® Quartus® Prime software. A software demonstration walks you through the entire process. If you’ve purchased a Cyclone® V GX FPGA Starter Kit from Terasic (, you can transfer the programming file created during the tutorial to the development board.
