Fast & Easy I/O System Design with BluePrint (OBLUEINTRO)

40 Minutes Online Course

Course Description

High speed I/O interfaces and the standards to support them are increasing in complexity. To support these interfaces in modern FPGAs, interface resource placement rules must be followed to the letter. However, there is no easy way for a designer to follow all the rules and achieve a valid resource floorplan without multiple cycles of placement, compilation, validation, and adjustment. In this training, learn about the BluePrint Platform Designer, an easy-to-use tool in the Quartus Prime Pro Edition software (for Arria 10 devices and newer) that uses the power of the Fitter to create a legal floorplan that used to take months in less than a week. Make guaranteed legal resource location assignments interface-by-interface instead of pin-by-pin to shorten your I/O planning cycle.
