Bottom Line Technologies Joins Xilinx Authorized Training Provider Program

Xilinx, Inc. (Nasdaq: XLNX) announced the expansion of its Authorized Training Provider (ATP) program to include Bottom Line Technologies, Inc. (Pennsylvania) as its exclusive training provider for the Northeast U.S. region, including Connecticut, New Jersey, New York, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, Eastern Pennsylvania and the District of Columbia.

Bottom Line Technologies now offers more than 20 courses to customers in the Northeast U.S., including FPGA design/architecture, embedded processing, DSP, HDL (VHDL/Verilog), and PCI(TM) solutions.

The ATP program offers engineers a broad network of local providers certified to deliver high quality training in Xilinx(R) programmable logic and system-level design. Today, the company’s worldwide ATP network includes 23 providers empowered to train engineers on the latest Xilinx programmable silicon solutions, including its flagship Virtex(TM)-5 and Spartan(TM)-3 FPGA families.

“We’re pleased to extend our longtime relationship with Xilinx, equipping FPGA designers with best practice design skills and methodologies to tackle increasingly complex projects faster, cheaper and with optimal performance,” said Bottom Line Technologies President Ed McCauley. “Time and again, our clients tell us that their investment in training pays long-term dividends. To maximize that investment, we now offer follow-on coaching to designers to reinforce lessons learned during coursework. We’ve found this to be a great supplement to training for experienced and novice designers alike.”

“We’re delighted to welcome Bottom Line Technologies to our ATP network,” said Xilinx North American ATP Manager Jason Fegley. “BLT has a solid working relationship with our sales organization and a proven track record of delivering high-quality, flexible, affordable design services to our customers for nearly 20 years. A former Xilinx field applications engineer, Ed has a keen understanding of our customers’ design challenges and Xilinx solutions. I’m confident that he and his team will continue to deliver tremendous value to our customers in the Northeast U.S. region.”

The Xilinx ATP program delivers training to engineers interested in learning how to develop low-cost, efficient programmable logic and system-level designs. Customers can enroll in Xilinx Education Services directly with their local ATP, or they can register for classes using training credits, if their company has purchased a Xilinx Productivity Advantage (XPA) package.
