Cadence has released a new online VHDL training course free for Cadence Customers. It is an in-depth, comprehensive course covering basic concepts, methodology, RTL coding, verification, reuse, and best practices, fully illustrated with code examples.
The course consists of 26 separate presentation modules. Each module covers one topic and includes subtitles/closed captions, a table of contents, slides notes, and a search bar. The slides and notes used in the course are available as a PDF.
There are also 14 lab exercises individually linked to specific modules. The labs have been designed to follow each other and progress in a logical manner as in a real-design situation. To make the labs more interesting, they are all parts of a single design you will build over the course. The design is an alarm clock with a seven-segment display driver, alarm register, pulse generator, time-counting mechanism, time-setting mechanism, alarm generator, etc. There are online and PDF lab books describing the lab steps in detail and a downloadable lab database to work with. In case you get stuck, the course also has comprehensive walk-through presentations that show every step to code, simulate, debug and verify each lab exercise.
In addition, there is also a set of short training byte videos designed for this course which is available on both the Cadence website and YouTube and is accessible to all. These videos contain content from the course as well as some new exciting topics, such as the working of the VHDL simulator, VHDL delay types, etc.
The course also contains a digital badge exam comprising about 100 questions pertaining to the content. Users can earn a badge by answering them, which is a value-add to one’s career.
