Second All Nepal FPGA Design Competition 2017 is going to take place on Kathford Int’l College of Engineering and Management, Balkumari, Lalitpur. This event is organized to promote and enhance hardware design skills with a chip technology called Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA).
This competition is jointly organized by Kathford Int’l College of Engineering and Management, National College of Engineering, Sagarmatha Engineering College, Kathmandu Engineering College and Digitronix Nepal Pvt Ltd.
The competition is the continuation of ‘First National FPGA Design Contest 2016’, which was held on July 2, 2016 at the Institute of Engineering (IOE) Pulchowk Campus.
FPGA is a programmable chips technology widely used in hardware systems such as mobile phones to applications in automotive, telecom and space missions. The FPGA technology is fast becoming one of the market leaders in hardware system design around the world.
The second edition of the competition hopes to lay the foundation of FPGA research in Nepal by enhancing FPGA application development skills and encouraging engineering students to do their projects on FPGA.
