CourseMarks Score® helps students to find the best classes. We aggregate 18 factors, including freshness, student feedback and content diversity.

Freshness Score

6.2 / 10
This course was last updated on 12/2018.

Course content can become outdated quite quickly. After analysing 71,530 courses, we found that the highest rated courses are updated every year. If a course has not been updated for more than 2 years, you should carefully evaluate the course before enrolling.

Student Feedback

7.8 / 10
We analyzed factors such as the rating (3.8/5) and the ratio between the number of reviews and the number of students, which is a great signal of student commitment.

New courses are hard to evaluate because there are no or just a few student ratings, but Student Feedback Score helps you find great courses even with fewer reviews.

Content Score

9.1 / 10
Video Score: 8.5 / 10
The course includes 6h 13m video content. Courses with more videos usually have a higher average rating. We have found that the sweet spot is 16 hours of video, which is long enough to teach a topic comprehensively, but not overwhelming. Courses over 16 hours of video gets the maximum score.
The average video length is 7 hours 09 minutes of 15 VHDL courses on Udemy.

Description

Introduction to VHDL is a course that someone with no experience or knowledge of VHDL can use to learn and understand the VHDL language. In this course students will learn about all of the different data types associated with the VHDL language. This course focuses on teaching students how the syntax of VHDL is interpreted and how it can be used to design circuits. There are over 8 different examples digital designs implemented in VHDL.

Course Structure
This course starts out by explaining the background and history of VHDL and it’s uses. Then students will learn about all the different objects and data types associated with VHDL. There are various examples showing the data types in use and how different objects behave in different applications. After learning about the data types and objects, students will then learn about the keywords and syntax of the VHDL language. Then students will learn about all of the different design architectures used in VHDL. Students will also learn how to design a test bench to simulate and verify functionality of their designs. This knowledge will then be used to complete the final project, tying in all facets of the VHDL language.
VHDL Designs
This course has many design examples, upon completing this course students will have their own library of VHDL design they can use and refer to at any time! This design library includes:
•Logical AND gate•Logical OR gate•Logical NOR gate•Logical NAN gate•Logical XOR gate•Half Adder•Full Adder•D Flip-Flop•Digital Comparator•SR (Set Reset) Latch•2:1 Multiplexer•Priority EncoderFinal Project
The final project in the course has students go through the design process of implementing a priority encoder on their very own development board. This project takes students through the various phases of developing a digital design, testing it, and implementing it. Students will be taken through step-by-step everything that is required to get the priority encoder up and running on their development board.
