Abstract:


Reconfigurable logic systems often consist of a mix of software and hardware requiring design experience from both domains. To reduce the challenge of learning reconfigurable hardware design, we have developed a framework for flexible learning through Internet. Learning takes place using videos, lecture slides, quizzes and lab assignments in addition to regular text books. Lab assignments consist of a physical lab setup accessible through a web browser using the Xilinx Vivado design tool with Xilinx Zynq®-7000. In this paper, we outline the developed material and student feedback after using it.
