Montreal, QC (PRWEB) June 20, 2011
Hardent, an electronic design services company, reported today that its popular PlanAhead™ training courses scheduled for late June have filled up at record pace. With three weeks before the scheduled start, one of two Xilinx PlanAhead™ Essential courses have already sold out, and its PlanAhead™ Advanced training sessions are also near capacity. Designed for FPGA designers, system architects, and system engineers, Xilinx PlanAhead™ Training assists you make tradeoffs between RTL Coding and Synthesis and Implementation, with extensive design exploration and analysis features. .
“Xilinx PlanAhead™ is the core of the ISE implementation tools, and these courses are the ultimate groundwork for creating and verifying RTL designs in either Verilog or VHDL, including access to the Xilinx IP catalog through CORE Generator integration,” said Simon Robin, CEO and founder of Hardent. “This would explain the high demand.”
PlanAhead™ training courses will focus on managing design performance, planning I/O pin layouts, and implementing by using the PlanAhead™ software tool. Topics in the Essential course include tool overviews, running Design Rule Check (DRC) and Simultaneous Switching Noise (SSN) analyses of pin assignments, design and timing analysie, creating cores, and completing synthesis and implementation with the PlanAhead™ tool. FPGA designers will learn to increase design performance and achieve repeatable performance by using the PlanAhead™ software tool. Topics in the Advanced course include synthesis and project tips, design analysis, creating a floorplan, improving performance with area constraints and Pblocks, design debugging with the ChipScope™ Pro tool, and design preservation with partitions.
The PlanAhead™ Essential course dates are scheduled for June 27th in New England and June 28th in Burlington, MA. The PlanAhead™ Advanced sessions are June 29th-30th in Burlington, MA. For more information on PlanAhead™ and other FPGA courses, please visit the Hardent training course schedule.
