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.
The Avnet seminar series are ideal for engineers either new to FPGAs, are looking to enhance their current design capabilities, or are designing complex embedded applications. Designers will receive hands-on training and information on finding new ways to get technology to market faster.
Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC SpeedWay Design Workshops
Introduction to Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC (cost $100)
Boston, MA ~ November 6, 2012
San Jose, CA ~ November 13, 2012
This course demonstrates the techniques and tools to create a basic Zynq-7000 SoC design. Through a series of instructor presentations and hands-on labs, hardware and firmware developers will learn the required steps for creating a complete Zynq-7000 SoC design on the ZedBoard. The Zynq architecture is explained, including the ARM Cortex-A9 processing system (PS) and the 7 series programmable logic (PL).
Linux on Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC (cost $100)
Boston, MA ~ November 7, 2012
San Jose, CA ~ November 14, 2012
This course explores the Linux operating system running on the Xilinx Zynq-7000 SoC. Starting with a pre-built hardware platform, the hands-on lab allows engineers to build an embedded Linux system from the beginning. An application and device driver are developed to interface to a custom hardware peripheral. A key objective for the course is to show how the ARM processing system and programmable logic work together inside a Linux framework.
Analog Devices and Xilinx Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC Software-Defined Radio (cost $200)
This course focuses on the integration of high-speed analog signal chain from RF to baseband, with Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC-based digital signal processing techniques for wireless communications. Topics will include high-speed analog signal chain, direct conversion radio architecture, high-speed data converter interface and FPGA-based digital signal processing for software defined radio. Attendees will work with the latest generation Analog Devices high-speed data converters, RF and clocking, combined with Xilinx Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC.
