The last 3 batches of 6th semester students recently completed a Vacation Training program “Designing with FPGA” at Sandeepani. The 10-day program was attended by a total of almost 100 students over 5 batches from colleges in Bangalore, Mangalore and Bantakal. The topics covered were Advanced Digital Design, Verilog and FPGA Design flow using Vivado. The participants were excited about using the latest Xilinx software and hardware and the experience changed their perspective about the core electronics industry. The knowledge they gained over the short period of time strengthened their basic knowledge and helped to better understand the concepts learnt as part of their academics. All participants were given a course completion certificate at the end and are eagerly looking forward to their next vacations to renew their association with CoreEL and Sandeepani.
