Online VHDL Classes

SynthWorks online classes are instructor-led training that provide the same benefits as our classroom based training.   Lecture and labs are provided in half day segments allowing training to be mixed with work responsibilities.   No travel required, attend from your desk or home.

The Class:
  • Class is lead by a VHDL expert.
  • We cover the same materials as an in-person classroom session.
  • Just like an in-person class, you can ask questions during a lecture session.
  • The meeting service we use allows you to use integerated audio (via your computer) or your phone.

    An On-line Class Day:
  • An on-line class day consists of a 2 to 3 hour lecture session and a 1.5 to 3 hour lab session.
  • Each on-line class day is approximately half of an in-person class day.
  • As a result, the class pace is half that of an in-person class and is more relaxing.

    The Labs:
  • Labs are done separately from class.
  • Instructor is available for questions via phone, email, or an online session (as needed).

    Class Hours:
  • We work with you to offer the class at a convenient time - generally within your normal work hours.
  • We offer class sessions at different times for different regions (US, Europe, ...).

  • All classes require a computer with a simulator.
  • Comprehensive VHDL Introduction and VHDL Coding for Synthesis require a synthesis tool.
  • Highspeed Internet (Fiber, DSL, cable modem, or better).
  • A headset is recommended to use the integrated audio. USB headsets are reliable, but bluetooth also works.
  • A quiet place.

    Getting tools for home:
  • Most simulators have temporary licenses that will last for the entire class session.
  • An FPGA version of the simulator is also fine.
  • The free version of Altera or Xilinx synthesis tools is sufficient.

    Test Drive?
    Not sure about online classes.   Let us know and we will arrange a test drive session.  

    Private Online Classes are available for groups.

    All of our core VHDL courses are available as an online class.   Online classes work well for small groups (1 to 3 people).   On-site classes work well for larger groups (5 or more).
