FPGA-Based System Design with High-Speed Data Converters Workshops

Avnet Electronics Marketing Americas (EMA), MathWorks, and Texas Instruments (TI) are offering a series of workshops on digital signal processing (DSP) system design using Xilinx FPGAs with high-speed data converters. The two-day workshops will take place throughout North America. Engineers attending the workshop will receive a coupon or discount for their choice of either: $400 off an AES-V6DSP-LX240T-G Xilinx Virtex-6 FPGA DSP Development Kit or an AES-S6DSP-LX150T-G Xilinx Spartan-6 FPGA DSP Development Kit. Attendees will also receive $650 off a TI TSW4200 Dual ADC and Dual DAC Development Platform for Xilinx Virtex-6 and Spartan-6 FPGAs or any other combination of compatible TI high-speed converter EVMs.

Avnet Electronics FPGA Workshop Dates and Locations

  • San Jose, CA – 9/21/2010
  • Boston, MA – 9/21/2010
  • San Diego, CA – 9/28/2010
  • Rochester, NY – 10/5/2010

  • Salt Lake City, UT – 10/21/2010

The topics of the hands-on workshops includedata converter architecture, analog signal conditioning, high-performance clocking, high-speed interfaces and FPGA-based digital signal processing. Developers will learn about TI’s portfolio of high-speed data converters and ways to integrate them into Xilinx Targeted Design Platforms based on Virtex-6 and Spartan-6 FPGAs. Hands-on labs, featuring TI’s data converter EVM bundle, Xilinx DSP design tools/IP and MathWorks’ MATLAB and Simulink model-based design, will introduce engineers to system-level concepts.

The cost of workshop is $595 per attendee and includes two days of lectures, labs, and meals.
