Electronics Marketing, an operating group of Avnet,
Inc. (NYSE: AVT),
is launching an extensive set of training seminars for designers of
embedded applications based on the Xilinx® Zynq®-7000 All Programmable
SoC. These half-day technical sessions will be presented across the
globe by Avnet subject matter experts in conjunction with Xilinx, Inc.,
Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI) and MathWorks.
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
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
