Free Versal Adaptive SoCs: Network on Chip ONLINE WORKSHOP


Course Description

The Versal® adaptive SoC from AMD is multi-featured, offering unprecedented system level performance and integration.

This workshop (delivered in 2 half day sessions) introduces the Versal™ adaptive SoC Network on Chip (NoC).

Besides providing an overview of the major components in the Versal device, the course illustrates how the NoC is used to efficiently move data within the device.

The workshop is designed to maximize individual engagement and learning.

Each attendee is encouraged to informally ask pertinent questions throughout, to actively participate in the learning process.

Course Duration

2 half day sessions

Audience & Pre-requisitis

Hardware developers and system architects whether migrating from existing Xilinx devices or starting out with the Versal adaptive SoC.

Course Outline

  • Architecture Overview for Existing Xilinx Users  – Introduces to students that already have familiarity with Xilinx architectures to the new and updated features found in the Versal ACAP devices.
  • Versal ACAPs Compared to Zynq UltraScale+ Devices The Versal ACAP has a number of similarities to the Zynq® UltraScale+™ MPSoC devices. Understanding what is the same, what is different, and what is brand new helps put this powerful new part into context.
  • NoC Introduction and Concepts – Reviews the basic vocabulary and highlevel operations of the NoC.
  • NoC Architecture – Provides the first deep dive into the subblocks of the NoC and how they are used. Describes how the NoC is accessed from the programmable logic.
  • Design Tool Flow Overview – Designers come to the Versal ACAP devices with different goals. This module explores how traditional FPGA designers, embedded developers, and accelerated system designers would use the various tools available in the Xilinx toolbox.
  • NoC DDR Memory Controller – The integration between the NoC pathways and the DDR memory controllers must be understood to have efficient data movement on and off chip. This discussion of the NoC’s DDR memory controller blocks provides the background for properly selecting and configuring DDR memory and the memory controller for effective use.
  • NoC Performance Tuning – Synthesizes everything about the NoC and its DDRMCs, illustrating how to fine tune the NoC for the best performance.
  • System Design Migration – Describes how different users will leverage tools and processes to migrate their designs to the Versal ACAP devices.
