Training programmes for Xilinx-based designs
- Comprehensive VHDL (5 days)
Comprehensive VHDL has been the industry's gold standard VHDL training class since 1991. It is quite simply the fastest, most effective way to get project-ready. You'll gain the expertise you need to write efficient, re-usable RTL code, and create test benches powerful enough to cope with complex designs.
Comprehensive VHDL comprises 2 modules:
- VHDL for Designers (days 1-3)
Prepares the engineer for practical project readiness for FPGA designs. While the emphasis is on the practical VHDL-to-hardware flow for FPGA devices, this module also provides the essential foundation needed by ASIC and FPGA designers wishing to apply the more advanced features of VHDL covered in the next module. Delegates targeting FPGAs will take away a flexible project infra-structure which includes a set of scripts, example designs, modules and constraint files to use, adapt and extend on their own projects.

- Advanced VHDL (days 4-5)
Builds on the foundation of the previous module to prepare the engineer for complex FPGA or ASIC design. It focuses on the use of VHDL for large hierarchical designs, design re-use, and the creation of more powerful test benches.

- Expert VHDL (5 days)
Expert VHDL has become essential training for engineers working on large or complex designs. Without it, efficiency and productivity can suffer, causing time-to-market and development costs to increase.
Expert VHDL is presented in two modules.
- Expert VHDL Design (days 1-2) teaches you to write better, more efficient code that is easier to maintain and re-use.
- Expert VHDL Verification (days 3-5) shows you how to speed up and improve design verification; make testbench writing easier and more effective for even the most complex testbenches, and create behavioural models to make tests run faster.

- Xilinx - Essentials & Design for Performance
Master the tools and design methodologies presented in this course and you will be able to shorten your development time, lower development costs, and reduce system costs by creating more efficient designs targeting smaller FPGAs, or lower speed grade.
- Xilinx - Advanced FPGA Implementation
This class delivers the training you need on tools, device features and work-flow to really get the most out of Xilinx FPGAs, and push design performance or density to the limits. Delegates learn how to optimize the size and performance of their designs using timing and placement control, incremental design techniques an manual routing and placement editing.
