The workshop introduces you to fundamental embedded design concepts and techniques for implementation in Xilinx FPGAs. The focus is on fundamental aspects of Xilinx embedded tools, IP, and the Embedded Targeted Reference Design (TRD). Design examples and labs are drawn from the Embedded TRD.Only essential theory is introduced in order to lay a foundation for the material and topics covered in this workshop, which complements more detailed training found in subsequent Xilinx courses.
