Training & Services

AMD offers courses about SI and PCB considerations when designing with high-performance FPGAs. For example, the “Signal Integrity for High-speed Memory and Processor I/O” course teaches signal integrity techniques applicable to high-speed interfaces between AMD FPGAs and semiconductor memories. The course covers:

  • High-speed bus and clock design effects such as transmission line termination, loading, and jitter.
  • Hands-on opportunities to work with IBIS models and complete simulations using CAD packages.
  • PCB effects and on-chip termination.

Our partners provide a broad range of design services including signal integrity analysis and PCB design.
