This workshop will qualify you to:
*Design a microprocessor in 2nd year measurements projects.
*Be aware of the VHDL knowledge, in addition FPGA design flow and design constraints.
*Work on Xilinix ISE.
*Final project: there would be a competition between teams through the workshop and the best team would be rewarded.

The participants will be certified by IEEE by the end of the course.

Final project will be held at the end, and the best team will be rewarded



VHDL is a Hardware Description Language (HDL) used to describe and test digital circuits and systems, and is the practical method used in the industry to design digital systems.

This workshop views the digital design flow process, demonstrates different VHDL design styles and illustrates coding of different well-known digital blocks. We also explore how to test digital circuits and VHDL entities.

The practical aspect is well-covered with extensive exercises on Mentor Modelsim.


Prerequisites: good knowledge with digital circuits (i.e. logic design course)


Topics Outlines:

  • Digital Designing Introduction.
  • Introduction to the VHDL language and ModelSim tool.
  • VHDL design styles
  • Behavioral Coding
  • Finite State Machines (FSM) And Algorithmic State Machines (ASM)
  • Test Benches
  • Pipelining Technique.
