Webinar "Understanding Versal: the AI Engines" -jetzt anmelden-

Versal Power and Board Design - Essentials - LIVE ONLINE

With the powerful Xilinx Versal ACAP device family the system level design requires an approach to create a power system that supports the device’s engines for full capability. This course provides the background to plan designs with these devices based on analysis of the design resource usage. Xilinx provides the tooling and guidance to successfully adopt such designs. The application of the Xilinx XPE power estimator tool will be explained and the lectures also describe the approaches to choosing a suitable package. With these methods a PCB design can be planned for with respect to power supply, decoupling and thermal management, that can be documented in the Versal ACAP Schematic Checklist.

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.
