Introduction to Serial IO Workshops

The full day “Introduction to Serial IO” workshops introduce the GTP RocketIO transceiver available in the new Virtex 5 LXT family of Platform FPGAs. The training covers the basic architecture of the GTP_DUAL primitive and provides a basic explanation of functional blocks and their roles. Attendees will use COREGEN and Chipscope to generate, implement, download, and test a GTP design.

Prerequisite
Attendees should have a familiarity with the ISE tool flow and basic HDL knowledge.
