Avnet Memec announced a new series of Microsemi SpeedWay Design Workshops. The focus of the events is the new Microsemi SmartFusion2 SoC FPGAs. The workshops will be held in 26 cities throughout North America. The first workshops will take place on February 19th in San Jose and Philadelphia. The cost of the one-day workshops is $99 per person. Each attendee will receive a SmartFusion2 Starter Kit ($299 value).
Avnet Electronics Marketing will hold a series of SpeedWay Design Workshops focusing on the Xilinx Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC. The technical training features a choice of three day-long sessions run by Avnet technical experts. The three Xilinx Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC SpeedWay design workshop sessions can be taken independently based on an engineer’s design needs or desired outcome.
Avnet Electronics Marketing Americas will conduct a series of SpeedWay Design Workshops focusing on the design and development flows for the Nano-ITX/Spartan-6 FPGA Development Kit. The workshops will show engineers how to implement different interface options with the Xilinx Spartan-6 PCI Express (PCIe) card. Designers will learn about the benefits of using an FPGA-based solution for peripheral expansion. The seminars will present a detailed technical overview for each of the reference design components, including Intel Atom E640 processor, the Xilinx Spartan-6 FPGA PCIe card, and the Emerson Network Power Nano-ITX motherboard.
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.
