Advanced Qsys System Integration Tool Methodologies

Course Description

In this class, you will learn advanced features of Altera’s Qsys system level integration tool in the Quartus® Prime design software v. 15.1. You will learn how to simulate Qsys systems in ModelSim-Altera Edition using Avalon bus functional simulation models (BFMs), exercise, monitor, and debug systems with System Console, and build hierarchical Qsys systems. You will also learn how to further customize your components through Tcl scripting. Optimization techniques for improving performance and closing timing are also discussed. The class provides a significant hands-on component, where you will gain exposure to tool usage as well as system design.

At Course Completion

You will be able to:

  • Test custom components and entire systems with the Avalon Verification Suite in the ModelSim-Altera Edition simulation tool
  • Perform in-system control & debugging with System Console
  • Optimize systems to maximize performance and help close timing
  • Customize components using Tcl
  • Exploit Qsys’ hierarchical capability to add flexibility & scalability to your design

Skills Required

  • Background in digital logic design
  • Working knowledge of the Quartus design software
  • Knowledge of HDL coding methodology (helpful but not mandatory)
  • Completion of the “Introduction to the Qsys System Integration Tool” class
