Course Description

The training provides an introduction to the Vivado® Design Suite. Learn about the Vivado Design Suite projects, design flow, Xilinx design constraints and basic timing reports.

Participants will also learn about the underlying database and Static Timing Analysis (STA) mechanisms. Utilize Tcl for navigating the design, creating Xilinx Design Constraints (XDC) and creating timing reports. Learn to make appropriate timing constraints for SDR, DDR, source-synchronous, and system-synchronous interfaces for your FPGA design.

In addition, participants will learn about making path-specific, false path and min/max timing constraints, as well as timing constraint priority in the Vivado timing engine

The minumum number of participants for this course is 5.


Course Objectives

  • Build an effective FPGA design using synchronous design techniques
  • Understand the configuration process
  • Instantiate appropriate device resources
  • Use proper HDL coding techniques
  • Learn sophisticated aspects of the Vivado Design Suite to use its advanced capabilities to achieve design closure

Who Should Attend?

  • Digital designers who have a working knowledge of an HDL (VHDL, Verilog or SystemVerilog) but are new to Xilinx FPGAs.
  • Existing Xilinx ISE users who have little or no knowledge of 7-Series or UltraScale devices.
