element14 has declared that it will be providing educational enrichment and skill-building opportunities for engineers all summer long with its ‘Summer of FPGAs’.
FPGAs are synonymous with artificial intelligence, high-performance computing, embedded vision, automated vehicles and the 5G transformation. element14 is making them the main focus this summer to help community members be ready to work with FPGAs in the future and hone their existing skillset.
“FPGAs are integral components for future innovations in electronics design,” said Dianne Kibbey, Global Head of Community and Social Media for the element14 Community. “That’s why we’re partnering with leaders in the FPGA space and sharing their expert advice to help make sure members of our community continue to have the knowledge set they need as the electronics design world continues to evolve.”
Over the summer months, element14 will be offering a wide range of educational workshops, webinars, training courses, and even opportunities for members to RoadTest the latest FPGA products, such as the Microchip PolarFire Splash Kit and the Lattice Semiconductor MachXO3L Starter Kit .
The events and training opportunities will be geared toward everyone, from makers who are just getting started to experienced engineers looking to keep their skills sharp. element14 Community members will also have the chance to win FPGA products to include in their designs.
To ensure members of the element14 Community can get the most out of these sessions, element14 has partnered with the leaders in FPGA and related technologies, including Xilinx, Microchip, Lattice, Digilent, Delkin, Samtec, On Semiconductor and more.
On July 22, element14 will host a live virtual panel with experts from Xilinx, Lattice and Microchip to discuss “Getting Started with FPGAs”. This lively conversation will dive into the benefits of FPGA technology, how to begin the journey and what FPGA components need to be considered in new product designs.
The panel discussion will conclude with an overview and tips on FPGA development environments, programming, design tools, and the development process. There will also be a time in the end for an audience Q&A.
