Designing with Dynamic Function eXchange (DFX) Using the Vivado™


3 days - 21 hours


  • After completing this training, you will have the necessary skills to:
    • 1 - Describe what Dynamic Function eXchange is, and the DFX tool flow with Vivado
    • 2 - Identify how Dynamic Function eXchange affects various resources for Xilinx Devices
    • 3 - Use the block design container feature of Vivado IP integrator to create a DFX design
    • 4 - Generate the appropriate full and partial bitstreams for a DFX design
    • 5 - Implement and debug a Dynamic Function eXchange system
    • 6 - Implement a DFX system in an embedded environment using the Vitis IDE


  • Designing FPGAs with Vivado™
  • Working HDL knowledge (VHDL or Verilog)
