Yes. You are provided three attempts to access a lab, and the time allotted to complete each lab is 2X the time expected to complete the lab.
We know that interruptions do occur, so you are provided twice the amount of time that a lab is expected to take for the CloudShare environment.
Alternatively, you can contact the registrar to request an extension to your lab time.
To test your connection and resolve performance issues (slowness in the environment, for example), follow the steps provided in the “Resolving Performance Issues in the CloudShare Environment” document available under the Overview tab section of the CloudShare environment.
No, the virtual machine used in the CloudShare environment is not available for separate download.
The VM is intended for training purposes only. Students have access to this VM via two avenues: CloudShare and ATP instructor-led classes. No support is provided for the VM outside of these training environments.
If you want to run the labs locally, you can still do so by downloading the lab files from www.xilinx.com/training/downloads.html. Note that you will need to install the necessary software tools with the appropriate licenses.
As long as your local machine is properly provisioned for the given lab, the labs can be run. The lab files are available from www.xilinx.com/training/downloads.html. Note that these lab files represent the starting point for the lab and do not contain any student-generated work.
You should also review the instructions available here (bottom of page). First review the Lab Setp Guide and then the Localize Labs document.
Note: Xilinx does not officially support local execution, and thus, the instructions provided are offered as is with no explicit or implicit guarantees, nor any Xilinx support.
Most labs do not require an actual physical board. In cases where an actual board may be necessary, students can still follow along with the lab instructions.
While it is possible to target other boards, the designs must be reimplemented using the constraint file appropriate for the target board. Most designs are portable among boards. Some designs used in the embedded curriculum are moderately complex and there may be non-trivial porting issues. Xilinx does not provide porting as a service.
