Stocks in this article: AVT MSCC

Avnet Electronics Marketing Americas, a business region of Avnet, Inc. (NYSE: AVT), will host a series of SpeedWay Design Workshops™, featuring Microsemi Corporation’s (NASDAQ: MSCC) new, low-power, cost-optimized IGLOO ®2 FPGAs. The workshops, taught by Avnet technical experts, kick off Feb. 25 in San Jose, Calif., and will be held in 26 cities throughout North America.

As one of the largest distributors of electronic components in the world, Avnet understands the value Microsemi’s IGLOO2 family provides to a comprehensive range of mainstream market applications. The Microsemi IGLOO2 delivers low-power consumption and innovative security features that contribute to significant competitive end-application differentiation for Avnet customers. SpeedWay Design Workshops enable Avnet’s customers to immediately start using Microsemi FPGAs in their designs.

The training is recommended for FPGA designers, system architects and design engineers who are new to IGLOO2 FPGAs or seek to enhance their expertise with low power and secure designs. Workshop topics range from introductory to advanced, demonstrating the techniques and tools used to create a basic IGLOO2 FPGA design that utilizes IGLOO2 FPGA fabric, built-in PCI Express ® controllers, low power design capabilities, advanced security processing and other important features used in FPGA-based designs.

“IGLOO2 FPGAs provide up to three times lower static power than competing solutions, making them a great option for designs that need significant overall system power reduction,” said Rondekka Moore, vice president, demand creation, Avnet Electronics Marketing Americas. “Through these SpeedWay courses, Avnet provides engineers a demonstration of how to analyze power for their own designs — whether they just started learning about FPGAs or they’re designing complex systems for industrial, military, aviation, communications or medical applications.”

“Due to its size and global footprint, Avnet is the ideal partner to facilitate these hands-on workshops on behalf of Microsemi,” said Jorgen Makitalo, global distribution channel director at Microsemi. “Avnet has the experience and technical know-how to train design teams who are ready to implement Microsemi’s next-generation, low-power, mainstream IGLOO2 FPGAs.”
