Topic of this thesis is complete design of an Artix-7 based FPGA development board. I aim to create a device that can be used as training aid on embedded systems-related laboratory courses. Students can examine their FPGA hardware design after downloading it to the board from Vivado HLS environment or other compatible platform.
In this thesis I would like to introduce the method of the design, main problems that have occured and the achieved results. I explain the requirements I set down for the board, and the efforts I took to make the board fulfill them. I introduce the detailed schematic diagram, and the arrangement of parts on the printed board circuit. I evaluate the achieved results and I also give recommendations regarding further progress and available improvements.
During my work I gained experience in system design, connecting the most common peripherals, drawing circuit diagrams and designing printed circuit boards. I could exert and extend the theoretical and practical knowledge I gained during my university studies.
