Intel® FPGAs Resource Center


New to FPGAs? Learn what an FPGA is and explore customer benefits.

Training (Online, Virtual, or Instructor Led)

Course Title Description
How to Begin a Simple FPGA Design This 19-minute online training is for engineers who have never designed an FPGA before. You will learn about the basic benefits of designing with FPGAs and how to create a simple FPGA design using the Intel® Quartus® development software 15.0. If you have an Intel® MAX® 10 FPGA Development Kit, you can transfer the programming file created during the tutorial to the development board.
Become an FPGA Designer in 4 Hours This longer online course gives you basic skills to design with Intel® FPGAs. The course uses lecture, demonstrations, and labs (elapsed time ~4 hours). There is an option to download your design to hardware. Learn architectural features of Intel devices and how the Intel® Quartus® development software works.
