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....




Perfect course for any one intersted in knowing more about FPGA internals and computing, SOC and ASIC concepts in FPGA. Thanks for this clear and perfect course. Thanks a lot to the professor.



Good introduction to reconfigurable computing with FPGAs. Concepts are clearly explained, and examples are illustrative and easy to follow. Lots of papers and additional content to read.

Good step-by-step course, from high-level to low-level. The listening is sometimes difficult (Italian accent), but since there is full text transcript and also sub-titles then it is very easy to clarify the misunderstandings (also because it's sometimes technically difficult or because of the acronyms).

Good content and clear explanations. The week4 is focussed on the practical implementation and that went too far for me, but I really enjoyed the weeks 1,2,3 for my goals that were the learn the theory about it.

Learned a lot about the background materials regarding FPGA, but the assignment quality should be more adaptive and challenging. Overall a great one. Thanks a lot to the professor!

Great informatic course, could've been improved a bit by implementing some hands-on exercises and more specific explanations

創建者 Qiang K


Good course for people wants to know the background of FPGA.

I learned a lot of invaluable things in this course such as Reconfigurable computing, Intellectual Properties (IPs), Partial reconfiguration, etc.. A general description of the low-level configuration details of FPGAs, to the bitstream composition and configuration registers. A view on how CAD frameworks evolved through the years. This is done to show how fast the technology is evolving and the rationale behind the choice made to improve the users' experience when working with an FPGA-based system. I really recommend this course. Finally, I would like to thank Professor Marco d. Santambrogio for his effort and Coursera for the opportunities it gives to students, engineers, researchers and even hobbyists who are passionate about the field.

Not that much interesting, they might have used real-time images and applications for the explanation.

創建者 Omkar K


More focus should be put on practical assignments

創建者 Arturo N E E


Way too theoretical, introduction seems vague without something to get your hands on.

創建者 ali a


the content is far too general and doesn't offer any valuable insight into the subject matter
