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.
Altera will be hosting a series of instructor-led and virtual classroom courses next month. The classes offer unparalleled insight into the fine points of FPGA design. The training was developed by experienced engineers and system architects.
Lattice Semiconductor is offering a series of free @MachXO2 Speed seminars. The Lattice events include hands-on technical training and live hardware demonstrations that focus on the MachXO2 PLD features that speed the design process and reduce time-to-market. The seminar’s hands-on hardware demonstrations utilize the versatile, battery-powered MachXO2 Pico Development Kit, which is discounted to $29 for the remainder of 2012.
Avnet Electronics Marketing and Xilinx are co-hosting X-fest 2012, which is a series of free, day-long seminars in North America, Europe, Asia and Japan. X-fest 2012 features twelve technical courses based on Xilinx’s new Artix-7, Kintex-7 and Virtex-7 FPGAs, and Zynq-7000 Extensible Processing Platform (EPP) family. The global event will also include hands-on demonstrations from Analog Devices, Cypress, Freescale Semiconductor, Maxim, Micron Technology, TE Connectivity, and Texas Instruments (TI). X-fest 2012 will take place in 22 cities around the world.
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.
qaqadu event gmbh is offering a DSP for FPGAs course from May 4 to 7, 2010, in Munich, Germany. The four-day DSP for FPGAs course will present and examine the use of FPGAs for DSP algorithms, applications and architectures. The DSP for FPGAs course will review DSP fundamentals from the perspective of implementation within the FPGA fabric. Particular emphasis will be given to highlighting the cost, with respect to both resources and performance, associated with the implementation of various DSP techniques and algorithms.
