Perfect course for any one intersted in knowing more about FPGA internals and computing, SOC and ASIC concepts in FPGA. Thanks for this clear and perfect course. Thanks a lot to the professor.
Good introduction to reconfigurable computing with FPGAs. Concepts are clearly explained, and examples are illustrative and easy to follow. Lots of papers and additional content to read.

Good step-by-step course, from high-level to low-level. The listening is sometimes difficult (Italian accent), but since there is full text transcript and also sub-titles then it is very easy to clarify the misunderstandings (also because it's sometimes technically difficult or because of the acronyms).
Good content and clear explanations. The week4 is focussed on the practical implementation and that went too far for me, but I really enjoyed the weeks 1,2,3 for my goals that were the learn the theory about it.

It would help the students if the text, videos, and quizzes used better grammar, because on some quizzes, it's possible for the students to select the wrong answers because they were confused by the incorrect grammar of the questions.

Learned a lot about the background materials regarding FPGA, but the assignment quality should be more adaptive and challenging. Overall a great one. Thanks a lot to the professor!

Great informatic course, could've been improved a bit by implementing some hands-on exercises and more specific explanations

Good course for people wants to know the background of FPGA.

Got a knowledge on basics of FPGA and its amazing uses

I learned a lot of invaluable things in this course such as Reconfigurable computing, Intellectual Properties (IPs), Partial reconfiguration, etc.. A general description of the low-level configuration details of FPGAs, to the bitstream composition and configuration registers. A view on how CAD frameworks evolved through the years. This is done to show how fast the technology is evolving and the rationale behind the choice made to improve the users' experience when working with an FPGA-based system. I really recommend this course. Finally, I would like to thank Professor Marco d. Santambrogio for his effort and Coursera for the opportunities it gives to students, engineers, researchers and even hobbyists who are passionate about the field.

An excellent course if you want to know the basics of FPGAs and the state of the art associated to their application. If you are trying to find a course with real examples, an specific CAD software for FPGAs this is not your course.

Not that much interesting, they might have used real-time images and applications for the explanation.

More focus should be put on practical assignments

Way too theoretical, introduction seems vague without something to get your hands on.

When I enrolled this course, I didn't I was about to be explained about football nor that the questions of the tests could have been that badly phrased. I mean, when I am asked "can I reconfigure the FPGA without stopping it from doing calculations", as far as I am concerned, I always proceeded that way with two Terasic boards I worked with. I mean, I don't have to power them off and flash them. Then if we think about what happens in internal and with the JTAG bus, it is another thing.
Other point, most of the articles/papers I was invited to read were on the IEEE website and they required me to be part of an organisation and to provide loads of credentials. I mean, when one wants to subscribe to a training, I hardly think that he/she wants to be sent to loads of websites and make one inscription per website. The articles should have been available directly on the platform.

the content is far too general and doesn't offer any valuable insight into the subject matter
