Project based learning experience in VHDL digital electronic circuit design
In this paper we present our experience in teaching digital electronic circuit and system design with FPGAs using VHDL. The course follows a project based learning methodology, in which the students learn how to design digital circuits and systems in a practical way. During the course, students design electronic circuits of incremental complexity. At the end of the course they are capable of implementing relatively complex projects, such as image processing systems and videogames.
