Designing Digital Systems Using VHDL – An introduction



  • Introduction to Digital Circuits – Digital Logic or RAHDG201



In RAHDG 432 we’ll Focus on designing different types of digital systems using VHDL language code then we simulate those in the ISE software and at the end we do the implementation. It includes Design and analysis of latches and flip-flops. Number of digital designs have been designed in VHDL language to make you understand them better.

This course describes the different types of design units in VHDL such as entity, architecture, configuration, package and package body. The design and analysis of synchronous state machines. State minimization and introduction to state assignment. Each topic will have many examples which goes over them briefly with different parts. By end of chapter 2 and 4 there will be a quiz for you to test your understanding of that specific chapter.

Core subject of this course is digital design flow. Topics include PLDs, Flip Flops, latches, Digital Design flow, encoder, signals. By end of the course, you should be able to design, simulate, implement, and troubleshoot our VHDL codes using appropriate techniques and test bench.

This course is mostly for academic level Engineering students in different universities around the world.

Since you would be having a lifetime access to this course you would be able to revisit during your career as year passes to refresh your memory.


The instructor of this course is Mehrad Nahouri. He has an Associates in Electrical Engineering concentration on digital field and is a lecturer at Rahsoft.
