Essential DSP implementation techniques for Xilinx™ FPGAs

(ref.D_ESS)

2 days - 14 hours

Objectives

  • After completing this training, you will have the necessary skills to:
    • 1 - Describe the advantages of using FPGAs over traditional processors for DSP designs, utilize fixed point binary arithmetic and identify how to use this knowledge to create efficient designs in FPGAs
    • 2 - Recognize how both the CLB slices in FPGAs and the more advanced DSP48s are used to implement DSP algorithms
    • 3 - Explain the dataflow through the device and how to use distributed memory, block RAM, registers, and SRLs to properly implement these designs
    • 4 - Construct different FIR filter and FFT implementations and how to optimize these implementations in the FPGA

Prerequisites

  • Fundamental understanding of digital signal processing theory and an appreciation of the principles of the following :
    • Sample rates
    • FIR (Finite Impulse Response) and IIR (Infinite Impulse Response) filters
    • Oscillators and Mixers
    • FFT (Fast Fourier Transform) algorithm
