After completing this comprehensive training, you will have the necessary skills to:
▪ Describe the UltraFast™ design methodology checklist
▪ Identify key areas to optimize your design to meet your design goals and performance objectives
▪ Define a properly constrained design
▪ Optimize HDL code to maximize the FPGA resources that are inferred and meet your performance goals
▪ Build resets into your system for optimum reliability and design speed
▪ Build a more reliable design that is less vulnerable to metastability problems and requires less design debugging later in the development cycle
▪ Identify timing closure techniques using the Vivado Design Suite
▪ Describe how the UltraFast design methodology techniques work effectively through case studies and lab experience
