Custom IP Development Using Avalon and AXI Interfaces (OQSYS3000)

113 Minutes Online Course

Course Description

A custom component (or Intellectual Property (IP)) is a user-defined hardware design block that can be instantiated into a Qsys system. In this class, you will learn about the many ways that custom components can be created and how to use the Component Editor to import them into your system. The basics of the standard interfaces required for creating custom components, Avalon and AXI™, will also be covered. You will examine several multi-port components in detail. Multiple ports on a single component allow you to exploit the true simultaneous multi-mastering capabilities of the system interconnect and to enable very high bandwidth systems. Finally, you will see how to simulate a component that sits in both the control and data plane of a simple data processing application.
