FPGA Training

Gain Expert Knowledge and Skills from the FPGA Experts at BLT

BLT Training offers over 50+ FPGA training courses to help you come up to speed fast on FPGAs, SoCs, and related specialty topics. We are an AMD Xilinx Authorized Training Provider and have been teaching AMD Xilinx training for over 25 years. We offer training online and in-person.

And unlike other AMD Xilinx trainers, our FPGA training courses are taught by our very own expert design engineers, who bring their real-world experience into the classroom. By Engineers, for Engineers.

FPGA Essential Training

Just getting started with FPGAs and SoCs? Our FPGA training boot camps will get you up to speed quickly.

Our 3 FPGA User boot camps are equivalent to taking 3 college-level courses…in only 9 days! Learn the essentials, cut your production times and get to market faster with our FPGA essential training.

What are our FPGA boot camps? We combine modules from multiple AMD Xilinx courses to teach you exactly what you need to know to get started. Check out our FPGA essential boot camp training:

Vivado Boot Camp for the FPGA User Phase 1:

FPGA Essentials – Architecture, Memory and IO

Vivado Boot Camp for the FPGA User Phase 2:

Tcl Scripting, IP Creation and Debugging

Looking for FPGA Language Training?

BLT offers several language courses. If you’re new to FPGAs we recommend taking our VHDL course prior to our boot camps. Below is some of our FPGA language training, or you can view our complete calendar.

Verilog

SystemVerilog

College course fit into 3 days

The instructor certainly knew the material and could explain the concepts as well as answer questions. Even the instructor said that this is a college course fit into 3 days.

The instructor was excellent

The instructor for this class, Glenn, was excellent. He presented the material with great examples and encouraged students to ask questions at any point in the course. Whenever there was a question he could not answer, he mentioned that he would bring it to his colleagues for answers, and after we came back from lunch, he had the answer.
