Synchronization Circuits Design in Intel FPGAs

Course Objectives

This course focuses on synchronization circuits design in Intel FPGAs using TimeQuest to measure MTBF.
The course starts with the motivation to increase circuit reliability by understanding synchronization circuit role for cross clock domain design.
The course continues with deep dive study of the synchronization techniques for various use cases, then choosing the right solution for your specific design.
The course covers also the synchronization circuit design for reset.
The course ends with the flow in Quartus Prime to make sure the software identifies your synchronization circuits, then analyze their reliability (using circuits for cross clock domain designs MTBF calculations) in TimeQuest.
The course embeds hands-on lab that encapsulate all theory into one final practical work, where the participant needs to add synchronizers into an already made design, then add timing constraints and analyze its MTBF in TimeQuest.
