DSP Design Using System Generator | Online & Onsite - San Diego, CA
Please note: This course is scheduled to run Onsite and Online simultaneously. If there is not adequate enrollment for Onsite, it may run in the Online version only.
Onsite and Online versions of this course have the exact same material and content.
This course allows you to explore the System Generator tool and to gain the expertise you need to develop advanced, low-cost DSP designs. This intermediate course in implementing DSP functions focuses on learning how to use System Generator for DSP, design implementation tools, and hardware co-simulation verification. Through hands-on exercises, you will implement a design from algorithm concept to hardware verification using the Xilinx FPGA capabilities.
