Designing with Ethernet MAC ControllersMunich / Stuttgart / Berlin / Frankfurt
The Ethernet protocol is used in a variety of applications. Xilinx offers various software and embedded hardware implementations for this, which require comprehensive knowledge for quick and effective use. The 2-day PLC2 workshop “Designing with Ethernet MAC Controllers” trains designers in the practical use of these Xilinx specific Ethernet solutions. Starting with the basics of the Ethernet standard, the workshop covers protocol description and the OSI layer model. It describes the application of Xilinx specific Ethernet solutions and reinforces this with exercises.
Participants learn the hardware-design and software-development skills they need for successful implementation.
To complete the workshop, an example will be implemented and tested in real hardware communication with the computer using a XILINX FPGA evaluation board.
Advanced knowledge on XILINX FPGA architectures
Basic knowledge in VHDL
