This Guide discusses a design methodology process to follow in order to achieve an efficient and quicker design implementation, and to derive the maximum value from Xilinx devices and tools.
New All Programmable Abstractions initiative improves productivity of hardware designers and empowers systems and software developers to directly leverage Xilinx All Programmable devices.
New All Programmable Abstractions initiative improves productivity of hardware designers and empowers systems and software developers to directly leverage Xilinx All Programmable devices. These abstractions have already proven to accelerate development of complex FPGAs and SoCs up to 15X over traditional RTL flows. To learn how you and your development team can take advantage of the right abstraction to fit your design needs, read the backgrounder.
Ian Ferguson, VP of Segment Marketing at ARM, introduces the Zynq®-7000 All Programmable SoC as the result of a strong partnership between ARM and Xilinx. He discusses how Zynq is opening up new markets for ARM and is alleviating the need for a multi-chip solution in many applications. Ferguson also speaks to Zynq's compatibility with leading operating systems and tools, and challenges designers to develop new and creative ways to design with a Zynq-7000 SoC.
Ian Ferguson, VP of Segment Marketing at ARM, explains how an ARM processor combined with an FPGA addresses the embedded space. He also discusses three areas where programmable logic provides the most value along with the new markets addressed by the Zynq®-7000 All Programmable device.
The UltraScale™ Architecture addresses these challenges by applying leading-edge ASIC techniques in a fully programmable architecture. This architecture scales from 20nm planar through 16nm FinFET technologies and beyond, while also scaling from monolithic through 3D ICs. The UltraScale architecture not only addresses the limitations to scalability of total system throughput and latency, but directly addresses interconnect - the number one bottleneck to system performance at advanced nodes.
UltraScale ™ architecture-based FPGAs extend Xilinx’s highly successful Virtex® and Kintex® FPGA and 3D IC families and enable massive data flow, system performance and lower power. To learn how the UltraScale architecture addresses key design challenges by applying leading-edge ASIC techniques in a fully programmable architecture, read the whitepaper.
Early power estimates help designers to define the architecture within the power budget by applying power saving strategies. It also aids the board designers to design and select the power supplies and heat sink. The power calculator spreadsheet is a power estimation tool which provides the ability to estimate power consumption at every project stage. Device resources, Flash*Freeze settings, operating frequency, clock resources, toggle rates, and many other parameters are entered into the spreadsheet. These parameters are combined with the power models to estimate the power needed for the design inputs.
This demo is intended to demonstrate the error detection and correction (EDAC) capabilities of SmartFusion®2 SoC FPGA on the embedded SRAM. The EDAC controllers implemented in SmartFusion2 SoC FPGAs support single error correction and double error detection (SECDED). All memories within the microcontroller subsystem (MSS) of the SmartFusion2 SoC FPGA are protected by SECDED.
Intellectual property (IP) is a key component in system designs for many different end markets. This white paper explores how Altera and partner IP solutions can provide the differentiation you need for your next-generation applications. This white paper examines the feasibility of developing IP in-house or buying from a third party, and also presents Altera's innovative IP scalability, integration, and delivery model. With this model, Altera not only simplifies the process of acquiring, evaluating, testing, and integrating IP into your design, but also mitigates the risks of using third-party IP.
