2nd Workshop on Fast design of digital systems

The Spain Chapter of the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society co-organizes for the second year in a row the  Workshop on Fast Design of Digital Systems, which is locally organized by the "Universidad San Pablo CEU" in Madrid, Spain on February 20-21, 2019. The workshop will be held at Escuela Politécnica Superior, University San Pablo CEU.  It is a two-day event aimed at researchers and hardware engineers and covers the fast design of digital systems (e.g. FPGA, ASIC) with the electronic design tool AHIR. AHIR enables the hardware compilation of a circuit description. The input entry is a high-level programming language and the output is fully functional VHDL. All sessions are composed of theory and practice. Examples will be tested on FPGA boards. In day 1 there will be an overview on the latest FPGA trends provided by AVNET-Silica Engineers.  

 

The workshop is free but it is necessary to register due to limited seating capacity. Please send an email to gabriel.caffarena@ceu.es
