FREE Webinar

The third in a series

June 3

2 pm EDT, 11 am PDT

Throughout the year, Mentor Graphics and UP Media Group will bring you a series of Webinars addressing how to efficiently design today's increasingly complex PCBs -- complexity necessary to be a player in today's competitive electronics industry. All events will be recorded for on- demand viewing. 

Coming on June 22: Design for Performance. See  the UPMG Webinars home page for more information.

Optimize System Performance With FPGA/PCB Co-Design


In the past, FPGAs were typically low density and low performance used primarily as "glue" logic to piece together a system. Today, FPGAs are high density, high performance components used to implement major system functionality.

Since the current trend is to use multiple FPGAs on a PCB, how do you effectively and efficiently integrate the two? New FPGA/PCB concurrent design processes and tools significantly improve system performance, product costs, and designer productivity. This session will discuss these new design approaches.


You Will Learn:

  • Elements of an effective FPGA on-board strategy
  • Specific implementation options
  • How to boost productivity and PCB quality

Who Should Attend:

  • System designers
  • FPGA designers
  • PCB designers
  • Project managers
  • Librarians involved in FPGA design
