Avnet Memec Actel Ultra Low Power Workshops

Avnet Memec recently announced their Actel Ultra-Low Power SpeedWay Design Workshop. The “how to” workshops provide hands-on experience to designers interested in leveraging Actel’s 5-microwatt IGLOO field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) for battery-operated and portable applications. Developed by Avnet’s factory-certified field application engineers (FAEs), the $49 Actel Ultra-Low Power workshops will be available through August 26, 2008, in 36 locations throughout North America.All participants will receive Actel’s battery-powered IGLOO Icicle Kit and a 7-segment digital multi-meter – a $100 value.

Agenda

  • Introduction to Libero IDE v8.3
  • IGLOO/A3P Product and Architecture Overview
  • FPGA Fabric Features – clocking, routing, memory
  • Low Power Design Considerations
  • Low Power optimization and analysis tools
  • Board level considerations
  • Processor and IP Overview

Avnet’s Actel Ultra-Low Power SpeedWay is a full-day session that introduces customers to the Actel IGLOO family and the Actel Libero Integrated Design Environment (IDE). Hands-on labs using the 1.4″ x 3.6″ cell phone-sized Actel Icicle Kit allow designers to easily and rapidly program, evaluate and modify their low-power IGLOO-based portable designs.
