Course Overview

This is a one-day version of the Designing with the UltraScale Architecture course and introduces new and experienced designers to the most sophisticated aspects of the UltraScale™ and UltraScale+™ architectures. Targeted towards designers who have used the Vivado® Design Suite, this course focuses on designing for the new and enhanced resources found in our newest FPGA family.
Topics covered include an introduction to the clock management resources (MMCM and PLL), global and regional clocking resources, memory resources, and source-synchronous resources. A description of the improvements to the dedicated transceivers and Transceiver Wizard is also included. Use of the Memory Interface Generator (MIG) and the new DDR4 memory interface capabilities is also covered.
In addition, you will learn how to best migrate your design and IP to the UltraScale architecture and the best way to use the Vivado Design Suite during design migration. A combination of modules and labs allow for practical hands-on experience of the principles taught.

Level:

FPGA 3

Who should attend?

Anyone who would like to build a design for the UltraScale or UltraScale+ device family

Prerequisite:

• Designing FPGAs Using the Vivado Design Suite 1 course
• Intermediate VHDL or Verilog knowledge

Software Tools:

• Vivado Design or System Edition 2017.3

Hardware:

• Architecture: UltraScale and UltraScale+ FPGAs*
• Demo board: None*

Skills Gained: After completing this training, you will be able to:

• Take advantage of the primary UltraScale architecture resources
• Describe the new CLB capabilities and the impact that they make on your HDL coding style
• Define the block RAM, FIFO, and DSP resources available
• Properly design for the I/O and SERDES resources
• Identify the MMCM, PLL, and clock routing resources included
• Identify the hard IP resources available for implementing high-performance DDR4 memory interfaces
• Describe the additional features of the dedicated transceivers
• Effectively migrate your IP and design to the UltraScale architecture as quickly as possible

Lab Description:

1. UltraScale Architecture Clocking Resources
Use the Clocking Wizard to configure a clocking subsystem to provide various clock outputs and distribute them on the dedicated global clock networks.

2. FPGA Design Migration
Migrate an existing 7 series design to the UltraScale architecture.

3. UltraRAM Memory
Use UltraRAM for a design requiring a larger memory size than block RAM.

4. DDR4 Design Creation Using MIG
Create a DDR4 memory controller with the Memory Interface Generator (MIG) utility.

5. UltraScale Architecture I/O Resources – Component Mode
Implement a high-performance, source-synchronous interface using I/O resources in Component mode for the UltraScale architecture.

6. UltraScale Architecture I/O Resources – Native Mode
Implement a high-performance, source-synchronous interface using I/O resources in Native mode for the UltraScale architecture.

7. UltraScale FPGAs Transceivers Wizard
Use the Transceivers Wizard to build a design that uses a single serial transceiver and observe the created file structures.
