FPGA Design for Power Electronics

The course is held by prof. Ricco and is part of the training provided for IBES PhD Students - a.y.2022/2023

  • Date: 02 FEBRUARY 2023  from 9:30 to 16:30

  • Event location: Room IX - Department of Civil, Chemical, Environmental and Materials Engineering "DICAM" - Viale Risorgimento, 4 - Bologna

  • Type: IBES Course


A field-programmable gate array (FPGA) is an integrated circuit designed to be configured by a customer or a designer after manufacturing. The main elements of the FPGA structure are given and the fundamental differences with the software counterpart (microcontroller and DSP) are provided. The major tools are examined (Vivado, HLS, HDL Coder) and different applications are presented. The final goals are to better understand FPGA devices and to give guidelines to choose the proper digital platform for power electronic applications.
