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.
