Implementing a Design Lab 4: Implementing with the PlanAhead Tool

LAB DESCRIPTION

 Note: All labs within this course are also available as self-guided tutorials, which are packaged with the PlanAhead tool.

Lab 1: Getting Started with the PlanAhead Tool – Illustrates the steps you take to import a synthesized design into the PlanAhead tool so that you can begin floorplanning. Also introduces the PlanAhead tool environment and views.
Lab 2: Assigning I/O Pins – Introduces the PinAhead environment for performing I/O pin assignment. You will create a project, import and export I/O ports lists, create I/O ports and interfaces, and make pin assignments.
Lab 3: RTL Development and Analysis – Provides an overview of the RTL development and analysis environment. You will analyze the RTL logic hierarchy, RTL schematic, RTL resource estimations and run RTL Design Rule Check (DRCs).
Lab 4: Implementing with the PlanAhead Tool – Illustrates a walkthrough of the front-to-back, RTL-to-bitstream design flow. You will run synthesis, import synthesis results, run implementation, and import and analyze the implementation.
