Essentials of FPGA Design

Course Cost: 1 day, live with an instructor = AU$495

Use the ISEĀ® software tools to implement a design and gain a firm understanding of the Xilinx FPGA architecture. Learn the best design practices from the pros and understand the subtleties of the Xilinx design flow.

This course covers ISE software 12.1 features, such as the Architecture Wizard, I/O Planner, and the Constraints Editor. Other topics include FPGA architecture, good design practices, understanding report contents, and global timing constraints.

After completing this comprehensive training, you will have the necessary skills to:

  • Take advantage of the primary features of the Spartan-6 FPGA
  • Use the Xilinx Project Navigator to implement and simulate an FPGA design
  • Read reports and determine whether your design goals were met
  • Use the Clocking Wizard to create DCM instantiations
  • Use the I/O Planner to make good pin assignments
  • Use the Xilinx Constraints Editor to enter global timing constraints

This coure is part of the Xilinx Academy I, though can be sat individually. For course details please refer to the relevant section in the Academy I course summary:
