Vivado High-Level-Synthese for Hardware Designers - LIVE ONLINEPLC2 ONLINE
The productivity of FPGA development can be significantly improved with the integral Vivado HLS and should be known to VHDL as well as Verilog developers, since the development effort for many modules can be reduced. The web seminar is aimed at hardware developers who have not yet worked with the Vivado-HLS to show you how to use the tool and what type of modules are suitable for C / C ++ synthesis and thus as an alternative to HDL coding.
The theoretical content is supplemented by exercises carried out by the participant.
Duration: 3 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.
