We currently offer training from the following partners:
Doulos VHDL and FPGA training courses
SmartFusion Mixed Signal FPGA Training
Designing with SmartFusion is a 2-day class for FPGA designers, embedded designers and firmware engineers who are designing with Microsemi's SmartFusion mixed signal FPGAs. This course describes the SmartFusion architecture, including the microcontroller subsystem (MSS), analog compute engine (ACE) and FPGA fabric along with software tools and design flows for implementing SmartFusion designs. Hands-on lab exercises targeting the SmartFusion evaluation kit are included to provide practical applications of the material presented.

HDL Designer Series
HDL Designer is a complete design and management solution that includes all the point tools of the HDL Designer Series. This course teaches you to use HDL Designer Series effectively in your FPGA or ASIC design process. The lectures take you through the HDL Designer Series design flow. This includes modeling the design with both graphics and text, generating HDL, and then simulating and animating the design to verify behavior. Hands-on lab exercises will reinforce lecture topics and provide you with extensive tool usage experience.

Introduction to Boundary Scan Workshops
These full-day sessions are designed to provide design, development, test, and production engineers with a practical hands-on introduction to boundary scan.
Find out how boundary scan can be used right across the product lifecycle to improve designs, reduce respins and enhance test coverage, fault diagnosis and production yields on complex BGA-populated circuits.
The workshops outline the following:
Overview of the IEEE 1149.x standards
Introduction to the XJTAG boundary scan technology
How to communicate with the JTAG chain
Tools to interact with JTAG devices, such as FPGAs or BGAs
Introduction to board testing using the JTAG chain
How to describe a circuit in order to enable JTAG testing
Fault finding abilities of a JTAG connection test
How to test non-JTAG elements of a board design using boundary scan
