Very challenging course with tough assignments and quizes to pass with deadlines but i enjoyed this.\n\nI got practical experience in designing, compiling and analyzing FPGA circuits.

This course will take you from a very basic understanding of FPGA technology to experiencing most facets of the design process. I would like to see more courses on this topic.

I thought that this course was an absolutely wonderful introduction to the world of FPGA design. I liked learning about the different features of some of of the more popular FPGA families. I really enjoyed the task of building a soft processor using the Altera Qsys software. I found that the homework was reasonable in scope and relevant to the topics presented in the lectures. I would like to learn more and I would like to suggest a series of classes like this one that also include HDL languages and verification concepts.

Good to get to know the quartus prime software and get started into fpga design.
After completing this course, Quartus prime feel way less aliens, I think I have a solid grasp as to what I need to look for to continue my fpga journey and VHDL seem way easier.
(You don't learn to make VHDL or Verilog code in this course)
the voice isn't always synced with the video
there a a few error in the quiz question
Some part could be introduced in a better way (time analysis definition could use some animation)
Was intended to be a 4 course series, I'm not sure if they will continues

The course is very very introductory and can only make you a little familiarize to FPGA/CPLD types and basics of programming FPGA... you will not be even upgraded to beginner, by taking this course.
Coursea charges $99 for a course that you could get the knowledge just by reading materials you could find by a simple search on google.
highly NOT recommended.

Pretty challenging course, but very helpful if you are parallel starting with real design or have to work with some ready design. I also very appreciate an overview of different FPGA and CPLD platforms, selection criteria of them.
So I am waiting for anounced next course, about Verilog and VHDL. It is exactly what i need right now.

Great course! Enthusiastic instructor who gives you what you need to get started step-by-step. You can learn so much on your own once you have a board, a tool and a detailed walkthrough.
The section comparing the different families of FPGAs was a good summary of what's out there and their basic differences.
I can't wait for the HDL follow up class.

I really enjoyed this course. The instructor is by far the best I have encountered on any on-line (or classroom) course. I'm now waiting for the rest of the specialisation.

Gives you a quick run down on designing FPGA systems without going into the details of VHDL or schematics. Good exercises.

The subject for each session is selected carefully and the gradual heaviness of the discussions is very well organized, so that student feels comfortable to move on.
Flawless presentation (thank you Tim!) and step by step manner of the discussions are the reasons I could keep up with the course eagerly.
I look forward to take the rest of the courses of this specialization.

An very good intro to the complex tools and techniques of FPGA design.
