  • Using the design tools and methodology provided by Xilinx to create complex systems
  • Describing the network on chip (NoC) and AI Engine concepts and their architectures

Workshop Duration

  • Duration: 1 day
  • Time: 09:00 – 16:00 CET


Software and hardware developers, system architects, and anyone who wants to learn about the architecture of the Xilinx Versal ACAP device.


Workshop Outline

  • 09:00 – 09:30 Introduction – Talks about the need for Versal devices and gives an overview of the different Versal families.
  • 09:30 – 10:00 Architecture Overview – Provides a high-level overview of the Versal architecture, illustrating the various engines available in the the Versal architecture.
  • 10:00 – 10:15 Break
  • 10:15 – 11:00 Design Tool Flow – Maps the various engines in the Versal architecture to the tools required and describes how to target them for final image assembly.
  • 11:00 – 11:30 Adaptable Engines (PL) Describes the logic resources available in the Adaptable Engine.
  • 11:30 – 12:00 Processing System – Reviews the Cortex™-A72 processor APU and Cortex-R5 processor RPU that form the Scalar Engine. The platform management controller (PMC), processing system manager (PSM), I/O peripherals, and PS-PL interfaces are also covered.
