SUNNYVALE, USA: Maxim Integrated Products Inc. announced that the company is collaborating with Xilinx and Avnet during the 2012 season of X-Fest. Maxim will provide content for several technical seminars and present demos on the company’s highly integrated analog and mixed-signal solutions for the Xilinx 7 series and Kintex-7 field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) and the Zynq-7000 Extended Processing Platform.
X-Fest 2012 is a series of free, day-long technical training seminars cohosted by Xilinx and Avnet from April through September 2012. The seminars are presented in 22 locations worldwide. Attendees customize their course by picking up to four seminars from among the unique training tracks offered. Maxim will be present in three tracks, the FPGA Fundamentals, Applications, and Zynq-7000 EPP sessions.
“X-Fest is a great environment to discuss real-life challenges with fellow FPGA and embedded systems designers,” said Jason Green, VP of Global Distribution at Maxim. “Maxim helps FPGAs interface to the analog world around us. Our products and reference designs will feature the latest, highly integrated, analog and mixed-signal products that complement Xilinx FPGAs and help simplify design.”
Demos will highlight ease of use with Maxim’s power-management ICs, ultra-low-power ADCs, robust yet cost-effective IP security devices, high-precision voltage references, wideband DACs, and more. Field Application Engineers (FAEs) will be present to discuss solutions for attendees’ next-generation design challenges.
