    I want to design my own Artix-7 board.

    I was looking for reference power design for Artix-7 FPGA, when I came across this solution offered by Linear Technology which has been used in the Digilent Basys 3 board: LTC Solution for Basys 3

    I downloaded their LTPowerCAD tool and accessed the power tree. My question is how I can go from this tree to a schematic? I am also reading this reference manual for the Basys 3 board.

    In case the solution schematics are not available, and I have to deduce my own, I have the following questions.

    • The block diagram, in the Basys 3 reference manual, shows the chips LTC3633 and LTC3621 connected directly with wires. Is this how it is meant to be in the layout as well (i.e, direct traces)

    • Do I just take the reference design for these chips and add them up?
    Any help is greatly appreciated.
