Designing with the Xilinx™ UltraScale and UltraScale+ Families


2 days - 14 hours


  • After completing this comprehensive training, you will have the necessary skills 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
    • Describe the UltraRAM features
    • 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
