Spartan-6 to 7-Series/UltraScale+ Migration - LIVE ONLINE

Many existing projects have been using Spartan-6 FPGAs. These projects are still valuable but may require some upgrades. The Spartan-7, Artix-7, Kintex-7, Virtex-7 or Zynq7000 devices can offer more capabilities and lower power consumption. Since the introduction of the 7-Series devices, the upgrade to the more powerful Vivado is necessary.

This online course session will cover the differences between the architectures, the process of toolchain migration and the reusability of existing source code.
