“We are building upon the success of the SpeedWay Design Workshops^TM to bring
these application-specific trainings featuring Avnet’s and our partners’
extensive technical expertise,” said Jim Beneke, vice president of global
technical marketing for Avnet Electronics Marketing. “In these sessions,
engineers can learn about the various Zynq-based solutions available today for
specific embedded applications, including software-defined radio, vision, and
motor control.”

Attendants can choose to participate in any or all of the following sessions:

  *Smarter Vision Design Seminar: This free seminar introduces students to
    the Xilinx Smarter Vision offering, featuring the Zynq-7000 All
    Programmable SoC, complemented with Vivado®, a robust development
    environment consisting of IP Integrator and Vivado HLS (High-Level
    Synthesis), Open CV libraries, SmartCORE™ IP and video development kits.
  *Smarter Vision Design Workshop: Presented in conjunction with the Smarter
    Vision Design Seminar, this workshop introduces embedded vision SoC
    application development using the Xilinx Vivado Design Suite to target the
    Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC. The student will be guided on how to move
    a software-based OpenCV algorithm to hardware using Vivado HLS and
    included video libraries. This hands-on lab costs $49, with limited number
    of seats available.
  *Motor Control from Concept to Production with Zynq: This free seminar is
    offered in conjunction with ADI, MathWorks and Xilinx. It bridges the gap
    between systems and hardware engineers by introducing an automated tool
    flow using Simulink® for modeling and C and HDL code generation targeting
    the Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC. Demonstrations will feature Avnet’s
    ZedBoard^TM tightly coupled with Analog Devices’ precision signal chain
    and comprehensive reference design.
  *Integrated Software-Defined Radio on Zynq: This free seminar is given by
    Avnet, ADI and MathWorks. It introduces wireless communication system
    design on the new Software-Defined Radio Kit II featuring Analog Devices’
    AD9361 single-chip, RF agile transceiver.

Avnet Design Seminars will take place in locations across the Americas,
Europe, Japan and Asia beginning in January. For more information and to see
