element14, an Avnet community, is providing educational enrichment and skills-building opportunities for engineers all summer long with its ‘Summer of FPGAs’.

FPGAs are synonymous with artificial Intelligence, high performance computing, embedded vision, automated vehicles and the 5G transformation. element14 is making them a main focus this summer to help community members be ready to work with FPGAs in the future and hone their existing skillset.

“FPGAs are integral components for future innovations in electronics design,” said Dianne Kibbey, Global Head of Community and Social Media for the element14 Community. “That’s why we’re partnering with leaders in the FPGA space and sharing their expert advice to help make sure members of our community continue to have the knowledge set they need as the electronics design world continues to evolve.”

Over the summer months, element14 will be offering a wide range of educational workshops, webinars, training courses, and even opportunities for members to RoadTest the latest FPGA products, such as the Microchip PolarFire Splash Kit and the Lattice Semiconductor MachXO3L Starter Kit The events and training opportunities will be geared toward everyone, from makers who are just getting started to experienced engineers looking to keep their skills sharp. element14 Community members will also have the chance to win FPGA products to include in their designs.

To ensure members of the element14 Community are able to get the most out of these sessions, element14 has partnered with the leaders in FPGA and related technologies, including Xilinx, Microchip, Lattice, Digilent, Delkin, Samtec, On Semiconductor and more.

On July 22, element14 will host a live virtual panel with experts from Xilinx, Lattice and Microchip to discuss “Getting Started with FPGAs”. This lively conversation will dive into the benefits of FPGA technology, how to begin the journey and what FPGA components need to be considered in new product designs. The panel discussion will conclude with an overview and tips on FPGA development environments, programming, design tools, and the development process. There will also be time at the end for an audience Q&A.

Additional workshops and courses include:

  • A tour of Zedboard
  • Developing your first projects using the Ultra-96
  • Getting started – Creating board definition files
  • Vision and Sound AI Workshop
  • High speed interconnects for FPGA applications
  • Debugging a Linux application using Vitis

element14 is part of Newark, An Avnet company, which helps design engineers, maintenance and test engineers, makers, parents, and teachers develop the future generation of coders and products that apply technology to change our world for the better.
