hueggenberg Announces DSP for FPGAs Technical Course

hueggenberg gbr, the experts for technical training courses, are pleased to announce the upcoming short course on “DSP for FPGAs” on October 14th to 17th, 2008, in Munich, Germany. Digital signal processing for programmable logic technology is still an ongoing topic as FPGAs afford highest DSP-capability due to their flexibility and will therefore further penetrate into the DSP communication market. “There is a high demand for professional training in this future-oriented field. We receive numerous inquiries”, describes Joachim Hüggenberg, managing director with hueggenberg gbr. “The participants of the recent trainings are ardent about the technical course DSP for FPGAs. This is the result of absolutely positive discussions and excellent evaluation.”

This course is organised by hueggenberg gbr and presented by Steepest Ascent Ltd, who have more than 10 years of experience in the delivery of professional training. The 4 day intensive course is coordinated by Prof. Bob Stewart with the assistance of the Steepest Ascent team and in cooperation with the Institute for System Level Integration (iSLI). The technical course will present and examine the use of FPGAs for DSP algorithms, applications and architectures and will feature the entire software design flow from concept and bit true simulation, to actual hardware implementation. Special attention is paid to practical experience; after each presentation a hands-on session will follow in which attendees will be able to simulate and implement the structures and architectures introduced. Each attendee will receive a comprehensive set of notes and examples for in depth study after the course. Lectures about this topic have been successfully presented in the USA at University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) since 2002, and at ISLI since 2004 as well as on-site to number customers.

14th – 17th October 2008 in Munich, Germany
1st – 4th December 2008 in Livingston, Scotland

Background DSP for FPGAs
FPGAs with DSP functionality are a rapidly growing market with vast potential. They target a broad field of applications including industrial, automotive, communication systems, broadcast video SD/HD, image processing, infotainment, radar, sonar and security systems. Furthermore, the growing requirements for processing speeds of the order of 10-100 billions of operations per second, the need for rapid prototyping and software definable architectures will further the penetration of FPGAs into the DSP communication market.
