Workshops help with integration of FPGAs and high-speed data converters


Avnet Electronics Marketing Americas (EMA), the MathWorks and Texas Instruments is running a series of workshops focusing on digital signal processing (DSP) system design using Xilinx FPGAs with high-speed data converters.

These workshops are being offered to design engineers beginning September 21, 2010 in Milpitas and Boston. They will also be held in San Diego, Rochester, Denver aND SALT LAKE CITY.

Engineers from Avnet and TI will present at the two-day, hands-on workshops with topics ranging from data converter architecture, analog signal conditioning, high-performance clocking, high-speed interfaces and FPGA-based digital signal processing.

Attendees will learn about TI's portfolio of high-speed data converters and ways to integrate them into Xilinx Targeted Design Platforms based on Virtex-6 and Spartan-6 FPGAs.

Hands-on labs, featuring TI's data converter EVM bundle, Xilinx DSP design tools/IP and MathWorks' MATLAB and Simulink model-based design, will introduce engineers to system-level concepts.

The intention is that designers will leave with a greater understanding of ways to incorporate FPGA-based solutions for high-speed data converters with FPGAs and will uncover new ways optimize system performance.

Each workshop is $595 per attendee and covers the full two days of lectures, labs and meals. Attendees will also 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.

They 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.
