Designing with the Xilinx™ 7-Series Families


2 days - 14 hours


  • After completing this comprehensive training, you will have the necessary skills to:
    • Describe all the functionality of the 6-input LUT and the CLB construction of the 7 series FPGAs
    • Specify the CLB resources and the available slice configurations for the 7 series FPGAs
    • Define the block RAM, FIFO, and DSP resources available for the 7 series FPGAs
    • Properly design for the I/O block and SERDES resources
    • Identify the MMCM, PLL, and clock routing resources included with these families
    • Identify the hard resources available for implementing high performance DDR3 physical layer interfaces
    • Describe the additional dedicated hardware for all the 7 series family members
    • Properly code your HDL to get the most out of the 7 series FPGAs
