DSP for FPGAs Technical Course

hueggenberg gbr is offering a DSP for FPGAs course on October 14th to 17th, 2008, in Munich, Germany. The course is organized by hueggenberg gbr and presented by Steepest Ascent Ltd, who have more than 10 years of experience in the delivery of professional training. The 4 day intensive course is coordinated by Prof. Bob Stewart with the assistance of the Steepest Ascent team and in cooperation with the Institute for System Level Integration (iSLI).

The technical course will present and examine the use of FPGAs for DSP algorithms, applications and architectures and will feature the entire software design flow from concept and bit true simulation, to actual hardware implementation. Special attention is paid to practical experience; after each presentation a hands-on session will follow in which attendees will be able to simulate and implement the structures and architectures introduced. Each attendee will receive a comprehensive set of notes and examples for in depth study after the course. Lectures about this topic have been successfully presented in the USA at University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) since 2002, and at ISLI since 2004 as well as on-site to number customers.
