X-fest 2009 Technical Seminar Series

X-fest 2009 is a 36-city global technical seminar series that offers practical, how-to training for FPGA, DSP, and embedded systems designers. X-fest seminars will take place in locations around the globe beginning in October 2009, and ending in February 2010. X-fest features multi-track training sessions ranging from building block to system level solutions that utilize the latest FPG technologies. Attendees will discover the advantages of using the new Xilinx Virtex-6 and Spartan-6 FPGA families in their designs, and learn how to leverage the many supporting technologies from Avnet’s other X-fest partners. Engineers will have access to industry experts and partner exhibits from Cypress Semiconductor, Intel, Maxim Integrated Products, National Semiconductor, NXP, Texas Instruments (TI), and Tyco Electronics.
