Easy Start FPGA Vivado - LIVE ONLINE


The online training course ”Easy Start FPGA Vivado“ covers the basic approach to the FPGA development cycle. It teaches the participant everything that is necessary to get started. In this workshop, the XILINX design tool Vivado will be used. After a short introduction to the FPGA design techniques and the process of development, this class concentrates on synthesis/ simulation, circuit implementation and startup of the FPGAs.

The theoretical content is supplemented by exercises carried out by the participant.

Duration: 2 mornings of 4 hours each

Times:    9.00 a.m. - 11.00 a.m.      Lecture part 1

              11.00 a.m. - 11.15 a.m.    15 minute break

              11.15 a.m. - 1.15 p.m.       Lecture part 2

Exercises:  self paced by the participants. Estimated time for completion appr. 2-3 hours. At the end of a lecture, the exercises to be performed by participants are discussed. The results / sample solutions are presented by the trainer the next day.

After registration: The participant receives the presentation documents in electronic form (PDF) as well as the workbook for the exercises, the login data and a list of 
requirements to be done in advanced.
