VIVADO Design Suite Tool FlowStuttgart / Freiburg / Stuttgart / Frankfurt / Berlin
The Vivado™ Design Suite is a new and highly integrated design environment explicitly created for handling huge, system oriented programmable designs. The main pillars are a unified and scalable data base allowing great cross probing possibilities and a unique test environment for a shortened learning curve. In addition, increased adherence to industry standards such as AMBA® AXI4, IP-XACT (for meta data for self developed IP cells), Tool Command Language (Tcl), Synopsys® Design Constraints (SDC) etc. allows for easy scalability and a simplified automation of the development process. Vivado™ is conceptually designed in a way to deal with all aspects (logic, SW, I/O, mixed signal, etc.) of programmable technology and this for designs of a complexity of up to 100M ASIC gates.
This is an introductory class. It teaches planning techniques and strategies as well as different software functions. The class guides the attendee through a complete design flow: Starting with the specification of the functionality, passing through synthesis, verification and implementation to the final test in hardware.
