Designing with the XILINX Analog Mixed Signal Solution
Processing analog mixed signals (AMS) in a FPGA is already feasible today! This course is an introduction to the analog mixed signal design solution with XILINX FPGAs and their associated tools and techniques.
This class’ target audience are analog and digital hardware engineers interested in using different AMS techniques. This course mainly takes advantage of the XILINX Analog-to-Digital-Converter Core (XADC).
The complete front-to-back design flow is covered. This includes generation of test signals, binding the different digital processing components and in particular the analysis of the XADC block.
Using a XILINX evaluation board with an FMC add-on card, accompanying exercises assure the different possibilities to be applied practically. This starts with the simulation of an analog input signal and finishes with a digital analysis of that stimulus in the FPGA design like with e.g. a FFT.
