Attending the Designing for Performance class will help you create more efficient designs. This course can help you fit your design into a smaller FPGA or a lower speed grade for reducing system costs. In addition, by mastering the tools and the design methodologies presented in this course, you will be able to create your design faster, shorten your development time, and lower development costs.
FPGA designers with intermediate knowledge of HDL and some experience with the Xilinx ISE® software tools.

ChipScope Pro Software (optional)
Lab 7: Chipscope Pro Software (optional)
Lab 1: Designing with FPGA Resources – Create block RAM and
clocking FPGA cores using the CORE Generator™ tool. Instantiate
these cores and other clock resources and implement the design. Lab 2: Synthesis Techniques – Experiment with different synthesis
options (including timing constraints, resource sharing, synthesis
optimization effort, and register balancing) and view the results. Lab 3: Review of Global Timing Constraints – Use the Constraints
Editor to enter global timing constraints. Lab 4: Achieving Timing Closure – Review timing reports and enter
path-specific timing constraints to fully describe your performance
requirements. Lab 5: Designing for Performance – Improve performance and
maximize results solely with implementation options and SmartXplorer. Lab 6: FPGA Editor Demo (optional) – Use the FPGA Editor to view a
design and add a probe to an internal net. Lab 7: ChipScope Pro Software (optional) – Add an internal logic
analyzer to a design to perform real-time debugging
