Lab setup instructions for your upcoming AMD Xilinx training

This will take 1-2 hours to complete and MUST be done prior to your class.

You may require assistance from your IT Department. BLT also offers office hours to help with your setup.

STEP 1:

You will need an AMD Xilinx username. Follow the directions from AMD Xilinx to get your username if you don’t already have one.

 

STEP 2:

You will need Vivado 2021.2 installed on your system for your class. We understand that you may have a different version of Vivado already installed, however the labs for your class will only work with this version of Vivado. This course is not compatible with other versions of the tool.

  • It is strongly recommended to be fully licensed for the best class experience.

 

STEP 3:

Please download and install the lab files for your class.

  1. Download lab files sent in your lab instructions email. (This will be a link in your email with lab setup information and office hours.)
  2. Create a “training” folder under your home directory, place lab files there: i.e. /home/<user>/training/<lab files>

My instructor was very professional

My instructor was very professional and answered all of my questions thoroughly. I enjoyed hearing about his professional experience with certain aspects of the course / labs as we went through the course.

My instructor took time

My instructor took time during some of the breaks to look up and distribute information about questions that he didn’t happen to know direct answers to, and I always appreciate when instructors take the time to do that.

Expert tidbits

I liked the expert tidbits my instructor threw in to keep in mind when working on projects in the future regarding best practices. I also appreciated the questions the more experienced students asked, and how he was knowledgeable in order to address them.

College course fit into 3 days

The instructor certainly knew the material and could explain the concepts as well as answer questions. Even the instructor said that this is a college course fit into 3 days.

I had a wonderful instructor

I had a wonderful instructor. His pacing throughout the course was good and made sure to allow for student questions and have conversations about related topics and experiences. I think the atmosphere was great for everyone to both learn and to share experiences, tips, and tricks about using the tool and the features discussed throughout the course.

Thanks for a great class!

I have attended a bunch of training courses over the years. This one was definitely one of the best I have attended. Erich did a great job, and the material is very well done. Thanks for a great class!

Erich was engaging

Erich was engaging and had good pacing during the course. Although the course was all day for 3 days I didn’t feel exhausted at the end of sessions.
