Xilinx FPGAs provide a new level of system design capabilities through soft MicroBlaze™ processors, hard PowerPC® processors, AXI interconnect, and silicon-efficient architectural resources. This course brings experienced FPGA designers up to speed on developing embedded systems using the Embedded Development Kit (EDK). The features and capabilities of the Xilinx MicroBlaze soft processor are also included in the lectures and labs. The hands-on labs provide experience with the development, debugging, and simulation of an embedded system.

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

  • Describe the various tools that encompass the Xilinx Embedded Development Kit (EDK)
  • Rapidly architect an embedded system containing a MicroBlaze processor and Xilinx-supplied AXI architecture IP by using the Base System Builder (BSB)
  • Utilize the Eclipse-based Software Development Kit (SDK) to develop software applications and debug software
  • Create and integrate your own IP into the Project Navigator environment
  • Simulate your own custom peripherals with Bus Functional Models (BFMs)
