Hurrah! My FPGA Fundamentals course went live just a few seconds ago as I pen these words...
"Cool Beans," as we French say (grin). I just heard that – only seconds ago as I pen these words – the free FPGA Fundamentals online course over which I have been slogging and slaving (staring "Yours Truly" as himself) was just launched:

Note that if you haven't already registered with TechOnline you will have to do so, but this is free and takes only a few seconds of your time.
How exciting! For your delectation and delight, this course provides an introduction to Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) including usage and selection of devices. The content includes:
- What is an FPGA (History, Timeline, Early Devices)?
- FPGAs vs. CPLDs vs. ASICs vs. Microprocessors
- Modern FPGAs - Alternative Architectures and Fabrics
- Specialist FPGAs (Asynchronous and Mixed-Signal devices)
- Design considerations
- Choosing an FPGA
- FPGA development tools
Of course, you may already know all of this stuff, but I bet you know someone who (a) doesn't and (b) would like to learn more. If so, please do pass this on...
