Designing for High Performance
1. Choose the best architecture ( EPLDs vs XC3000 vs XC4000 )
with four examples.
2. MSI-PAL-CPLD User Expectations vs Gate-Array user expectations
3. Design Entry, Floopplanning, Optimize schematics for speed.
4. High-performance circuit issues:
Input setup and hold, metastability,
simultaneous switching outputs,
transmission line effects,
Power considertions, thermal management, designing for low power.
There will be hand-outs that combine a dozen presentations,
total ca 350 slides on 180 pages.
