These tutorials were given in the Sunday afternoon session of FPGA 2019 (February 24th).

Supplimentary Materials:

Getting Started

Before attempting the tutorials above, please install and/or setup the following tools:

  1. RapidWright 2018.3.1

  2. Vivado 2018.3

  3. Eclipse or IntelliJ (not required, but mentioned in Pipeline Generator)

  4. Jupyter Notebook and the RapidWright Kernel (for Jupyter Notebook tutorials)

  5. Download the RapidWright-binder repository by running the following at the command line:

git clone https://github.com/clavin-xlnx/RapidWright-binder.git
  1. Start the Jupyter notebook server and point it at your RapidWright-binder directory:

jupyter notebook --notebook-dir=RapidWright-binder

At this point the above Jupyter notebook tutorial links should open properly.
