Signal Integrity and Board Design for Xilinx FPGA's
Learn when and how to apply signal integrity techniques to high-speed interfaces between Xilinx FPGAs and other components. This comprehensive course combines design techniques and methodology with relevant background concepts of high-speed bus and clock design, including transmission line termination, loading, and jitter.
You will work with IBIS models and complete simulations using Mentor Graphics HyperLynx. Other topics include managing PCB effects and on-chip termination. This course balances lecture modules with instructor demonstrations and practical hands-on labs.
Digital designers, board layout designers, or scientists, engineers, and technologists seeking to implement Xilinx solutions. Also end users of Xilinx products who want to understand how to implement high-speed interfaces without incurring the signal integrity problems related to timing, crosstalk, and overshoot or undershoot infractions.

Lab 1: Invoking HyperLynx – Become familiar with signal integrity
tools. Use HyperLynx for schematic entry, modeling, and
simulation. Modify a standard IBIS model to define a driver and
then use its stackup editor to define a PCB. Lab 2: Reflection Analysis – Define a circuit and run various
simulations for effects of reflection. Lab 3: Crosstalk Analysis – Using simulation, analyze circuit
topology and PCB data for strategies to minimize crosstalk. Lab 4: Power Prediction – Estimate initial power requirements
using an Excel spreadsheet, then use XPower Analyzer to
accurately predict board power needs. Lab 5: Pin Planning – Use the PlanAhead software to identify pin
placement and implement pin assignments. Lab 6: Thermal Design – Determine maximum junction
temperature and calculate acceptable thermal resistanc
