This course is for anyone passionate in learning how a hardware component can be adapted at runtime to better respond to users/environment needs. This adaptation can be provided by the designers, or it can be an embedded characteristic of the system itself. These runtime adaptable systems will be implemented by using FPGA technologies. Within this course we are going to provide a basic understanding on how the FPGAs are working and of the rationale behind the choice of them to implement a desired system. This course aims to teach everyone the basics of FPGA-based reconfigurable computing systems. We cover the basics of how to decide whether or not to use an FPGA and, if this technology will be proven to be the right choice, how to program it. This is an introductory course meant to guide you through the FPGA world to make you more conscious on the reasons why you may be willing to work with them and in trying to provide you the sense of the work you have to do to be able to gain the advantages you are looking for by using these technologies. We rely on some extra readings to provide more information on the topic covered in this course. Please NOTE that most of the time, these documents are provided through the IEEE Xplore Digital Library, which means that, to access them, you have to have a valid IEEE subscriptions, either does by yourself or through your university/company. The course has no prerequisites and avoids all but the simplest mathematics and it presents technical topics by using analogizes to help also a student without a technical background to get at least a basic understanding on how an FPGA works. One of the main objectives of this course is to try to democratize the understanding and the access to FPGAs technologies. FPGAs are a terrific example of a powerful technologies that can be used in different domains. Being able to bring this technologies to domain experts and showing them how they can improve their research because of FPGAs, can be seen as the ultimate objective of this course. Once a student completes this course, they will be ready to take more advanced FPGA courses.

FPGA计算系统:背景知识和入门资料:本课程适合那些热衷于学习如何在运行时修改硬件组件以更好地响应用户/环境需求的人员。这种调整可由设计人员提供,也可以是系统本身的嵌入式特性。这些运行时自适应系统将通过使用FPGA技术来实现。 在本课程中,我们将提供有关FPGA工作方式的基本知识,以及选择FPGA来实现所需系统的基本原理。 本课程旨在向所有人教授基于FPGA的可重构计算系统的基础知识。我们介绍了如何决定是否使用FPGA的基础知识,如果该技术被证明是正确的选择,则将介绍如何编程。 这是一门入门课程,旨在指导您进入FPGA领域,使您更加了解为什么愿意与他们合作,并为您提供为获得所需要做的工作的感觉使用这些技术所寻找的优势。 我们依靠一些额外的阅读材料来提供有关本课程所涉及主题的更多信息。 请注意,在大多数情况下,这些文档是通过IEEE Xplore数字图书馆提供的,这意味着要访问它们,您必须自己或通过您的大学/公司进行有效的IEEE订阅。 本课程没有任何先决条件,并且避免了除最简单的数学之外的所有数学知识,它通过使用类比来帮助没有技术背景的学生至少提供对FPGA工作原理的基本理解,从而提出了技术主题。 本课程的主要目标之一是尝试使对FPGA技术的理解和访问民主化。 FPGA是可以在不同领域中使用的强大技术的绝妙示例。能够将这项技术带给领域专家,并向他们展示如何借助FPGA来改善他们的研究,可以被视为本课程的最终目标。一旦学生完成本课程,他们将准备学习更高级的FPGA课程。
