In this step, you will learn how hardware-efficient fixed-point types can be used to create a design which meets the required specification but is more efficient in resources, and understand how to use Xilinx HDL Blocksets to analyze these systems.

This step has two primary parts:

  • In Part 1, you will review and synthesize a design using floating-point data types.
  • In Part 2, you will work with the same design, captured as a fixed-point implementation, and refine the data types to create a hardware-efficient design which meets the same requirements.
