LCAL0001: FPGA Remote Laboratories
The LCAL0001 licenses provide access to various FPGA remote laboratories listed below. They are oriented toward higher education (universities and colleges) and training, in courses for Digital Electronics, Digital Design, HDL languages, or anything that can benefit from accessing real FPGA devices, online.
This product does not require the purchase of any hardware or equipment. The hardware of the remote laboratories is distributed in universities and other institutions around the world, and these licenses give remote access that distributed equipment, without having to purchase the equipment.
This product includes access to remote laboratories for 6 months, for a unique person per license. Each license cannot be exchanged or transferred to another person. The license can also not be used by automated software. Standard Terms and Conditions of LabsLand apply.
With these licenses, the following laboratories are included:
Teach Digital Design with FPGAs using a remote Terasic DE1-SoC!
In this laboratory, students can learn how to work with Hardware Design Languages: VHDL, Verilog, or SystemVerilog. Then they can test their code in a real Terasic DE1-SoC FPGA. The FPGA has a set of components and peripherals already in place, such as 10 red LEDs, 6 7-segment displays and multiple clocks. In addition, you will have access to 10 virtual switches and 4 virtual buttons that you can use in your design and that you will be able to interact with when controlling the real hardware. This way, you will be able to turn on and off the switches or press the buttons and see how your design behaves. The boards are located in different universities and institutions around the world, as you will see when using each board.
Teach Hardware design with real FPGAs!
In this laboratory, you can teach how to program using three Hardware Design Languages: VHDL, Verilog or SystemVerilog, and test your code in one of our multiple boards available. Every FPGA has a set of components already place, such as 10 LEDs, 6 7-segment displays or multiple clocks. In addition, you will have access to 10 virtual switches and 4 virtual buttons that you can use in your design and that you will see when interacting with the real hardware.
Whenever you synthesize your code, you will be assigned to a particular board (such as Terasic DE2-115 or Terasic DE1-SoC or others), and you will be able to send your code to one of the available boards and to turn on and off the switches or press the buttons and see how your design behaves. The boards are located in different universities, as you will see when using each board.
Target courses & topics
The FPGA Laboratories are designed to be useful for courses that cover topics such as:
Digital Systems & Digital Logic & Programmable Logic & Logic Design
Digital Design & Advanced Digital Design
Digital Circuits and Systems
Hardware Design Languages (VHDL, Verilog, SystemVerilog)
FPGAs & Industrial Control Hardware
Intel NIOS 2
Image & Audio Processing with accelerated hardware
Combinational & Sequential Digital Systems
Every institution (whether it is a school, university, or company) using LabsLand has a LabsLand space.
A LabsLand space is a personalized web where institutions can organize the access to the laboratories by their students. In LabsLand, an institution typically has multiple groups of students using different laboratories. For example, a University or Community College might have multiple classes using remote laboratories, or even in a single class, they might have different groups of students (e.g., Spring 2023, Fall 2024).
The license includes:
In the case of individual users, it includes a license in a special generic space of LabsLand.
In the case of institutions, LabsLand will create a space for the institution with the laboratories included. It is possible to combine different licenses in a single LabsLand space.
