MSC and eVision Systems will be hosting Lattice FPGA workshops next month. The one-day events will focus on FPGA design with VHDL using MachXO2 devices from Lattice Semiconductor. The workshops are held in German language with English slides. The workshop costs 129€ per person plus VAT. The training includes a MachXO2 Breakout Board and Lattice SW starter kit.
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.
Altera will showcase their industrial embedded solutions for energy-efficient and safety-integrated drive systems at SPS/IPC/DRIVES Electric Automation Exhibition and Conference. Altera will show how their Cyclone FPGA devices enable industrial systems like drive systems with a high-performance control loop in floating point. The event will take November 22-24 in Nuremberg, Germany.
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, 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.
At the Embedded Systems Conference (ESC) Boston, Actel will offer demonstrations and workshops about integrating an FPGA, embedded processor and programmable analog into designs. The embedded systems show will take place September 20-23, 2010 at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston, Massachusetts. The Embedded Systems Conference will also feature a keynote address by Actel’s CEO John East on Wednesday, September 22, 2010 at 9:30 a.m.
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.
