Xilinx has a webinar titled, Accelerating High-Bandwidth System Design Implementations with FPGA-based platforms. The webcast will explain how the Targeted Reference Design, delivered through the Xilinx Connectivity Kits, jumpstarts application development by providing a complete design flow for an end-to-end system application — hardware design and RTL source files, simulation environment, implementation flows and scripts, software device driver source files, performance/status monitor application, and documentation.
Xilinx Webinar Overview
FPGAs provide multi-gigabit serial transceivers to implement high-speed serial protocols and have become the platform of choice for a large and growing number of applications today. In addition to providing flexibility for system design implementation through the FPGA architecture, designs can also be easily modified to meet different performance requirements and support legacy and newer serial / parallel protocols to reduce development and debug costs, significantly accelerating time to market.
While designers have been traditionally integrating multiple IPs, design flows and migrating them from one FPGA platform to another, Xilinx is simplifying and accelerating system design implementations by providing a complete and comprehensive Connectivity platform to design, develop and debug high bandwidth applications through the Targeted Reference Designs.
The Targeted Reference Design, TRD, is delivered through the Connectivity Kits and jumpstarts customer application development by providing a complete design flow for an end-to-end system application — hardware design and RTL source files, simulation environment, implementation flows and scripts, software device driver source files, performance / status monitor application and documentation.
