Xilinx – Vivado HLS ONLINE
PLEASE NOTE: This is a LIVE INSTRUCTOR-LED training event delivered ONLINE.
It covers the same scope and content, and delivers similar learning outcomes, as a scheduled face-to face class.
The course provides a thorough introduction to Vivado™ HLS (high-level synthesis). It covers:
- synthesis strategies
- improving throughput
- interface creation
- testbench coding
- coding tips.
You will learn how to utilize Vivado HLS to optimize code for high-speed performance in an embedded environment and download for in-circuit validation.
This training also provides an essential background for developing Software Defined SoCs (find out more about Doulos SDSoC Adopter Training).
Who Should Attend?
Software and hardware engineers looking to utilize high-level synthesis.
Engineers looking to develop Software Defined SoCs (see SDSoC Adopter Training).
- C, C++, or System C knowledge
- High-level synthesis for software engineers OR high-level synthesis for hardware engineers
After completing this comprehensive training, you will know how to:
- Enhance productivity using Vivado HLS (high-level synthesis)
- Describe the high-level synthesis flow
