Designing with the Spartan-7 FamilyBerlin / Stuttgart
The XILINX FPGA Spartan family offers the most affordable price / performance ratio of XILINX FPGA technologies. It is therefore used in particular in products of high volume.
The Spartan-7 technology offers a performance increase of approximately 30% and power reduction of up to 50% compared to the previous Spartan-6 technology.
This workshop will guide you through the architecture of the Sprtan-7 technology to allow a best optimizing, whether resource-conserving or for high performances.
The lab exercises are performed on the computer both simulatively and on the hardware.
The FPGA DesignFlow with the Vivado Tool Suite, such as project management, HDL coding and best methods are dealt with. Important topics such as Synthesis and implementation options will also be discusseda and how to analyzing the project results.
A Spartan-7 evaluation board is included in the price.
Basic knowledge on VHDL implementation
Basic knowledge in digital design techniques
