Abstract:Proposed work describes methodology, content development and implementation of hardware based training on complex programmable logic devices (CPLD) & field programmable gate arrays (FPGA) along with necessary electronic design automation (EDA) tools. A unique portable mini laboratory has been developed specifically to work with CPLD for engineering professionals and students; considering the limitations of teaching hardware along with necessary software’s in Indian engineering education in field of electronics & information technology. Mini laboratory contents customized CPLD board along with necessary electronic devices, components and laboratory tools; so students can perform all the laboratory experiments as well as new application development. To improve understanding of EDA tools along with programmable logic devices; theoretical and practical sessions are delivered simultaneously in training. CPLD training is oriented to the concept of learning by doing and to ingraining in students problem-solving & learning skills. This training methodology provide added motivation for students as they can design and implement real time digital systems into programmable logic devices.
Keywords: Education, Complex Programmable Logic Devices (CPLD), Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA), Electronic Design Automation (EDA).
