Product Features

The Embedded Systems Design Trainer is specifically engineered with classroom/lab learning in mind. Written by an instructor, the Student Trainer Lab Manual serves as a supplementary textbook covering essential microprocessor design topics such as data path and control unit design. Every topic is so completely detailed in the Training Manual, students can walk through the material themselves. With 11 hands-on labs, students will gain a solid understanding of advanced embedded systems design in an FPGA environment.

Global Specialties has created the perfect classroom tool by putting together everything you need to implement custom designed microprocessor circuits in one complete and easy-to-use trainer. Using system-on-a-programmable-chip (SOPC) framework, every aspect of the DL-030 is designed for students to get right to the business of learning embedded systems control designs. 
Utilizing the DL-030 and Altera Quartus® II software, one can carry out general FPGA design, prototyping and testing, or you can continue with the Nios® II embedded design suite to successfully implement a fully functioning microprocessor or microcontroller in minutes. 
This trainer is the third in the series of our digital logic and microprocessor trainer course. All of the combinational and sequential logic circuits implemented on the Combinational Logic Design Trainer (DL-010) and the Sequential Logic Design Trainer (DL-020) can also be completed on the DL-030. 
Measuring 244 x 175 x 40 mm (9.6 x 6.9 x 1.6 inches), the trainer comes with easy to operate I/O’s (switches and push-buttons) and easy to read displays (LED’s and 7-segments). All of these are mapped to the FPGA and support the Training Manual experiments. The DL-030 is a complete and ruggedly packed trainer that will provide a solid learning platform to individuals and classroom students.
