Timothy Scherr

TIm Scherr earned his Bachelor of Science degree from Washington University in St. Louis and his Master of Science from the University of Utah, both in Electrical Engineering. He has over 30 years of engineering experience designing military communications systems, cable TV equipment, analog telephony Circuits, VoIP systems, license free radios, single board computers, and scientific instrumentation. During this time he held positions as an engineering manager, Director of Engineering, and President of a startup company. A common thread through all this was digital signal processing and embedded system design. He is excited to share his experience and continue working in this burgeoning field.

FPGA Capstone: Building FPGA Projects (Coursera)

This course will give you hands-on FPGA design experience that uses all the concepts and skills you have developed up to now. You will need to purchase a DE10-Lite development kit. You will setup and test the MAX10 DE10-Lite board using the FPGA design tool Quartus Prime and the System Builder.

FPGA Softcore Processors and IP Acquisition (Coursera)

This course will introduce you to all aspects of development of Soft Processors and Intellectual Property (IP) in FPGA design. You will learn the extent of Soft Processor types and capabilities, how to make your own Soft Processor in and FPGA, including how to design the hardware and [...]

Hardware Description Languages for FPGA Design (Coursera)

Hardware Description Languages for Logic Design enables students to design circuits using VHDL and Verilog, the most widespread design methods for FPGA Design. It uses natural learning processes to make learning the languages easy. Simple first examples are presented, then language rules and syntax, followed by [...]

Introduction to FPGA Design for Embedded Systems (Coursera)

Programmable Logic has become more and more common as a core technology used to build electronic systems. By integrating soft-core or hardcore processors, these devices have become complete systems on a chip, steadily displacing general purpose processors and ASICs. In particular, high performance systems are now almost [...]
