Doulos' training credentials

Doulos has delivered Altera®-specific training since 1999, and FPGA-specific VHDL training since 1997. Our client support activities include Intel FPGA-specific (previously Altera) design projects, and we work closely with ALSE, a leading FPGA design house in France. Intel-based training can be delivered in English, French or German. Classes fully support today's FPGA devices, and the Intel Quartus® Prime FPGA tool flow, including dedicated labs.

Training programmes for Intel-based design

Language Training

  • Comprehensive VHDL (5 days)
    Comprehensive VHDL has been the industry's gold standard VHDL training class since 1991. It is quite simply the fastest, most effective way to get project-ready. You'll gain the expertise you need to write efficient, re-usable RTL code, and create test benches powerful enough to cope with complex designs.

    Comprehensive VHDL comprises 2 modules:

    • VHDL for FPGA Design (days 1-3)
      Provides a solid foundation for Intel designers, especially those needing to apply the more advanced features of VHDL covered in the Advanced VHDL module. Covers the FPGA design flow with practical, hands-on exercises throughout, and delegates leave with a flexible project infra-structure to use, adapt and extend on projects after the class. Workshops include dedicated labs illustrating the use of Quartus Prime in the FPGA tool flow.
    • Advanced VHDL (days 4-5)
      Pre-requisite training for engineers targeting large FPGAs, such as Stratix® IV. Focuses on testbenches to cope with more complex designs, and design for re-use.

  • Expert VHDL (5 days)
    Expert VHDL has become essential training for engineers working on large or complex designs. Without it, efficiency and productivity can suffer, causing time-to-market and development costs to increase.

    Expert VHDL is presented in two modules.

    • Expert VHDL Design (days 1-2) teaches you to write better, more efficient code that is easier to maintain and re-use.
    • Expert VHDL Verification (days 3-5) shows you how to speed up and improve design verification; make testbench writing easier and more effective for even the most complex testbenches, and create behavioural models to make tests run faster.

  • Embedded Design for Intel SoC FPGAs
    The latest Intel SoC FPGAs (Altera Cyclone® V & Arria® V), with their Embedded Processing System using ARM® Cortex®-A9 MPCores represent a significant evolution for Intel devices. To help you understand the design challenges and maximise the potential of these SoC FPGAs, this modular four day training course, covers the essential concepts and tools usage to help you start a new application in confidence, as well as provide lots of practical examples that you can use as a basis within your environment.
