Analog Devices Inc., in collaboration with Xilinx® Inc. and MathWorks Inc., is launching a series of design conferences for analog, mixed-signal and embedded systems engineers. Based on the theme “Discuss. Design. Deliver.,” the conferences will bring together experts in high-performance analog, field-programmable gate arrays (FPGA) and modeling tools to present complete signal chain and system-ready solutions for complex design challenges. Engineers attending Design Conference 2013 will leave with practical knowledge and understanding of new products and solutions they can use in their designs. Experts from multiple engineering disciplines will lead the conferences and instruct engineers on advanced techniques of high-performance signal processing, reference designs and systems applications. Design Conference 2013 will take place in the United States, Germany and China. Avnet, Digilent and 4DSP, sponsors of the U.S. conferences, will showcase their industry-leading solutions based on ADI’s analog and mixed-signal technologies.
US Conference Dates/Locations
April 25: Greater Boston, MA
April 30: Santa Clara, CA
“More than ever, analog and digital engineers are required to design across the entire signal chain in order to meet today’s intense time-to-market pressures,” said Raj Seelam, director of Solutions Marketing at Xilinx. “Xilinx and Analog Devices have worked together to co-develop kits and reference designs that combine FPGAs, data converters and high-speed serial interconnects for easier system integration and faster time to market. Educational conferences such as these, extend our collaboration and help designers better meet the demands of multi-channel, data-intensive applications in industrial, healthcare, communications and other markets.”
Each day-long conference will include live demonstrations and 16 technical sessions addressing a wide range of technology areas and application solutions in industries such as aerospace and defense, high-speed RF communications, process control, motor control and instrumentation. The conferences are designed to expose attendees to the latest technology and signal processing innovations as well as real-world system level reference applications and tools showing how that technology can be rapidly applied within the broader ecosystem.
“When connecting a high-speed analog module to an FPGA platform, the right design tools are critical for developing systems efficiently,” said Ken Karnofsky, senior strategist, Signal Processing, MathWorks. “During the conference, attendees will learn how MATLAB® and Simulink® can be used to develop, model and deploy high-performance signal processing systems.”
