Any serious hardware or software development effort will have a regression test suite. Continuous integration, automated daily tests, manually-executed scripts, etc. represent the different ways in which developers define, create and run validation procedures to determine the quality, performance and/or reliability of products. This article focuses on those tests that require constant (re-)compilation of FPGA […]

You may think that it’s impossible to run Vivado on a lightweight machine like a Chromebook. After all, FPGA design is a compute-heavy task that is only practical with your company’s workstations and high-performance servers. So how do we do it? Mission Impossible? Okay, we confess; We can’t bend the laws of physics so we […]

In FPGA design optimization, it is practically impossible to predict the effect of every possible placement and route in advance. Exploring the endless combinations of settings to find good ones is like navigating correctly through a teeming traffic thoroughfare. So drawing inspiration from autonomous driving that successfully solved the road navigation problems, how do you […]
