Are you interested in learning how to effectively utilize Spartan®-6 or Virtex®-6 FPGA architectural resources? This course supports both experienced and less experienced FPGA designers who have already completed the Essentials of FPGA Design course. This course focuses on understanding as well as how to properly design for the primary resources found in these popular device families.
Topics covered include device overviews, CLB construction, DCM and PLL clocking resources, global, regional and I/O clocking techniques, memory, DSP, and source-synchronous resources. Memory controller support and the dedicated hardware resources available in each of the sub-families (EMAC, PCI Express® technology, and GTP transceivers) are also introduced.
This course also includes a detailed discussion about proper HDL coding techniques that enables designers to avoid common mistakes and get the most out of their FPGA. A combination of modules and labs allow for practical hands-on application of the principles taught.
Note: A two-day Spartan-6 family only course or two-day Virtex-6 family only course is also available.
* This course focuses on the Spartan-6 and Virtex-6 architectures. Check with your local Authorized Training Provider for the specifics of the in-class lab board or other customizations.
