Altera is offering several free online technical training courses. The educational classes help designers stay up to date on the latest FPGA products, features, and design techniques. Engineers can learn the recommended debug methodology and analysis techniques and how to use the latest debugging tools. Topics cover include debug, timing analysis and closure.
Every year, the brilliant students at Cornell University work on some fabulous projects for their ECE 5760. The students were given the responsibility of choosing their project, then designing and building it. Projects were built using the Altera/Terasic DE2 Development and Education board. This year’s projects include: prime number generator and RSA encrypter/decrypter, Conway’s life synthesizer, hand video-tracking virtual piano and drums, finger video-tracking virtual string instrument, and hand video-tracking video game.
qaqadu announced three technical short courses starting in October 2010. The training courses are: FPGAs for Embedded Processors (October 12-14, 2010); DSP for FPGAs (November 16-19, 2010); and DSP Theory, Algorithms and Architectures (December 7-10, 2010). After each presentation, a hands-on session will follow in which engineers will be able to simulate and implement the structures and architectures introduced. The events will take place in Munich, Germany. The classes will be in English. 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.
