FPGAs and Embedded Processors Technical Course

The FPGAs and Embedded Processors technical course will take place on June 16th to 18th, 2009, in Munich, Germany. The target audience is Digital, DSP, FPGA/ASIC, and Software engineers who want to learn how embedded systems may be designed and implemented within FPGA technologies. The training features hands-on sessions where attendees will be able to simulate and implement the structures and architectures introduced. All attendees will receive electronic and printed versions of the teaching materials. A DVD containing all the simulation models used during the course will also be distributed.

The class will offer a comprehensive overview of how embedded styled systems can be implemented within a Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) and discuss how FPGAs can be used as a platform for System-on-Chip (SoC) styled designs. An introduction to FPGAs and their DSP capabilities will be presented along with a detailed overview of the embedded processor and connectivity options that are available. The course has a significant practical element to show to the attendees how to implement simple hybrid software/hardware DSP algorithms. Attendees will develop existing Intellectual Property (IP) cores into hardware co-processors and combine these with soft processor cores using the various connectivity options available. Hardware/software debugging techniques will also be presented and demonstrated.
