This course is for anyone passionate in learning how a hardware component can be adapted at runtime to better respond to users/environment needs. This adaptation can be provided by the designers, or it can be an embedded characteristic of the system itself. These runtime adaptable systems will be implemented by using FPGA technologies. Within this course we are going to provide a basic understanding on how the FPGAs are working and of the rationale behind the choice of them to implement a desired system. This course aims to teach everyone the basics of FPGA–based reconfigurable computing systems. We cover the basics of how to decide whether or not to use an FPGA and, if this technology will be proven to be the right choice, how to program it. This is an introductory course meant to guide you through the FPGA world to make you more conscious on the reasons why you may be willing to work with them and in trying to provide you the sense of the work you have to do to be able to gain the advantages you are looking for by using these technologies. We rely on some extra readings to provide more information on the topic covered …

He received his laurea (M.Sc. equivalent) degree in Computer Engineering from the Politecnico di Milano (2004), his second M. Sc. degree in Computer Science from the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) in 2005 and his PhD degree in Computer Engineering from the Politecnico di Milano (2008). Dr. Santambrogio was a postdoc fellow at CSAIL, MIT, and he has also held visiting positions at the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science of the Northwestern University (2006 and 2007) and Heinz Nixdorf Institut (2006). Marco D. Santambrogio is a senior member of the IEEE. Marco D. Santambrogio is a senior member of both the IEEE and ACM, he is member of the IEEE Computer Society (CS) and the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society (CAS). He is or has been member of different program committees of electronic design automation conferences, among which: DAC, DATE, CODES+ISSS, FPL, RAW, EUC, IFIP VLSI Conference. He has been with the Micro Architectures Laboratory at the Politecnico di Milano, where he founded the Dynamic Reconfigurability in Embedded System Design (DRESD) project in 2004. In 2011, he founded the Novel, Emerging Computing System Technologies Laboratory (NECSTLab – http://necst.it/), merging together the two previously existing labs: MicroLab and VPLab, and he is, since then, in charge of the laboratory.

    Good introduction to reconfigurable computing with FPGAs. Concepts are clearly explained, and examples are illustrative and easy to follow. Lots of papers and additional content to read.

    The videos and readings provide an excellent high level overview of the ideas and terminology needed before taking the more hands on courses.

    Good step by step course, from high level to low level. The listening is sometimes difficult (Italian accent), but since there is full text transcript and also sub titles then it is very easy to clarify the misunderstandings (also because it’s sometimes technically difficult or because of the acronyms). Good content and clear explanations. The week4 is focussed on the practical implementation and that went too far for me, but I really enjoyed the weeks 1,2,3 for my goals that were the learn the theory about it.

    I learned a lot of invaluable things in this course such as Reconfigurable computing, Intellectual Properties (IPs), Partial reconfiguration, etc.. A general description of the low level configuration details of FPGAs, to the bitstream composition and configuration registers. A view on how CAD frameworks evolved through the years. This is done to show how fast the technology is evolving and the rationale behind the choice made to improve the users’ experience when working with an FPGA based system. I really recommend this course. Finally, I would like to thank Professor Marco d. Santambrogio for his effort and Coursera for the opportunities it gives to students, engineers, researchers and even hobbyists who are passionate about the field.
