FPGA Devices and SoC Design Tools

This chapter will begin by providing an overview of the Xilinx FPGA hardware design flow in general and the tools associated with it, before highlighting the specific tools that are used when designing an SoC for FPGAs. We will also introduce the SoC design hardware verification using the available simulation tools. Finally, we will cover the high-level software design flow and its different steps and introduce the tools involved in the software design for an FPGA-based SoC.

In this chapter, we’re going to cover the following main topics:

  • FPGA hardware design flow and tools overview
  • FPGA SoC hardware design tools
  • FPGA and SoC hardware verification flow and associated tools
  • FPGA SoC software design flow and ...
