Analog Devices, Xilinx, MathWorks and Avnet Electronics Marketing are teaming together at the ADI Design Conference. The virtual event will give analog, mixed-signal and embedded systems engineers the opportunity to learn from leading, high-performance signal processing industry experts. The online conference will take place from 12 pm to 5 pm EDT with a live keynote speaker and interactive Q&A sessions.
Avnet Electronics Marketing Americas and MathWorks teamed on a new development kit. The tool combines a MathWorks software package with the Xilinx Kintex-7 FPGA DSP Development Kit with High-Speed Analog. The MathWorks Software Package for Xilinx DSP Kits is ideal for FPGA and DSP design engineers. It is available now from Avnet. Prices start at $13,995.
Altera, Arrow Electronics, and MathWorks are hosting the DSP Forum. The event will discuss application-specific digital signal processing design methodologies targeted for Altera FPGAs. DSP Forum will also explain how the combination of DSP Builder’s model-based design flow and MathWorks tools helps implement high-performance floating-point DSP. The one-day event will take place in multiple cities from May 1st to June 7th.
MathWorks introduced HDL Coder and HDL Verifier. HDL Coder automatically generates HDL code from MATLAB and helps engineers implement FPGA and ASIC designs from the MATLAB language. HDL Verifier features FPGA hardware-in-the-loop capabilities for testing FPGA and ASIC designs. HDL Coder and HDL Verifier are available now. Pricing for HDL Verifier starts at $3,250 and pricing for HDL Coder starts at $10,000. With HDL Verifier and HDL Coder, MathWorks now provides HDL code generation and verification across their MATLAB and Simulink tools.
MathWorks and Altera are offering a webinar about how to reduce FPGA design cycle time by 33-50% by adopting workflows based on MATLAB and Simulink. The webcast will demonstrate how MATLAB and Simulink are used to design FPGAs for applications such as signal processing, image processing, communications, and control systems. The Introduction to FPGA Design Using MATLAB and Simulink webinar will take place October 5th. The online event will take place at two different times: 6:00 AM and 11:00 AM PDT.
MathWorks introduced xPC Target 5.0. The real-time rapid control prototyping and hardware-in-the-loop simulation tool now includes support for FPGA devices. With xPC Target, computationally intensive algorithms can now run on FPGA boards. Control systems engineers can now program FPGA boards for xPC Target Turnkey systems using code generated by Simulink HDL Coder. xPC Target is available now with prices starting at $4,000.
MathWorks rolled out version 3.3 of their EDA Simulator Link. The latest version features FPGA-in-the-loop (FIL) capabilities for Xilinx FPGA development boards. FIL enables engineers to verify their designs at hardware speeds while using Simulink as a system-level test bench. EDA Simulator Link v3.3 is available now with prices starting at $2000 (US list price).
Avnet Electronics, MathWorks, Texas Instruments (TI), and Xilinx are offering a new series of SpeedWay Design Workshops. The hands-on training sessions will focus on designing co-processing solutions with TI’s DSP + ARM OMAP-L138 processors, Xilinx Spartan-6 FPGAs and MathWorks Simulink Model-Based design tools. Course materials and lab work will be based on the newly released Avnet Spartan-6 FPGA/OMAP-L138 Co-Processing DSP Kit. The workshops will take place next month throughout North America. The three-day workshops are $695 per person.
Avnet Electronics Marketing Americas (EMA), MathWorks, and Texas Instruments (TI) are offering a series of workshops on digital signal processing (DSP) system design using Xilinx FPGAs with high-speed data converters. The two-day workshops will take place throughout North America. Engineers attending the workshop will receive a coupon or discount for their choice of either: $400 off an AES-V6DSP-LX240T-G Xilinx Virtex-6 FPGA DSP Development Kit or an AES-S6DSP-LX150T-G Xilinx Spartan-6 FPGA DSP Development Kit. Attendees will also receive $650 off a TI TSW4200 Dual ADC and Dual DAC Development Platform for Xilinx Virtex-6 and Spartan-6 FPGAs or any other combination of compatible TI high-speed converter EVMs.
