Course Description

Essential Digital Design Techniques is a fast-track, application orientated course designed to bridge the gap between text book theory and real world digital design practice.

It significantly accelerates the on-the-job learning curve for engineers new to digital design, or those needing to refine their design skills before project involvement. With a strong emphasis on practical design and hands-on workshops, this course has been specifically developed to capture design techniques usually learned over months, in an intensive 2-day format.

Essential Digital Design Techniques provides the ideal first stage in full scale project training for graduate design engineers, or engineers moving into digital design from other disciplines (including software or analog design). As such, it is the natural precursor to the Doulos Comprehensive VHDL and Comprehensive Verilog courses, which prepare engineers for HDL application within FPGA or ASIC design projects.

The minumum number of participants for this course is 5.

Course Objectives

  • Gain combinational and Sequential Logic Design for PLDs and ASICs, with an emphasis on synchronous design techniques
  • Learn how to design and implement fundamental structures e.g. decoders, multiplexers, shift registers, counters
  • Learn how to design and implement synchronous Finite State Machines
  • Get an overview of ASIC and field programmable logic design including a survey of state of the art devices
  • Design with programmable devices
  • Understan effective Design methodologies and flows

Who Should Attend?

  • New graduate engineers embarking on a first project, or engineers with limited practical experience of digital design.
  • Engineers from other disciplines (e.g. software design or analog design) re-training for digital design involvement, or requiring familiarisation with modern digital design techniques.
