Global Design Conferences Connect Attendees with High-Performance Signal
Processing Experts from ADI, Xilinx and MathWorks.
NORWOOD, Mass.--(Business Wire)--
Analog Devices, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADI), in collaboration with Xilinx Inc. and
MathWorks Inc., is launching a series of design conferences for analog,
mixed-signal and embedded systems engineers. Based on the theme "Discuss.
Design. Deliver.," the conferences will bring together experts in
high-performance analog, field-programmable gate arrays (FPGA) and modeling
tools to present complete signal chain and system-ready solutions for complex
design challenges. Engineers attending Design Conference 2013 will leave with
practical knowledge and understanding of new products and solutions they can use
in their designs. Experts from multiple engineering disciplines will lead the
conferences and instruct engineers on advanced techniques of high-performance
signal processing, reference designs and systems applications. Design Conference
2013 will take place in the United States, Germany and China. Avnet, Digilent
and 4DSP, sponsors of the U.S. conferences, will showcase their industry-leading
solutions based on ADI`s analog and mixed-signal technologies.

"More than ever, analog and digital engineers are required to design across the
entire signal chain in order to meet today`s intense time-to-market pressures,"
said Raj Seelam, director of Solutions Marketing at Xilinx. "Xilinx and Analog
Devices have worked together to co-develop kits and reference designs that
combine FPGAs, data converters and high-speed serial interconnects for easier
system integration and faster time to market. Educational conferences such as
these, extend our collaboration and help designers better meet the demands of
multi-channel, data-intensive applications in industrial, healthcare,
communications and other markets." 

Each day-long conference will include live demonstrations and 16 technical
sessions addressing a wide range of technology areas and application solutions
in industries such as aerospace and defense, high-speed RF communications,
process control, motor control and instrumentation. The conferences are designed
to expose attendees to the latest technology and signal processing innovations
as well as real-world system level reference applications and tools showing how
that technology can be rapidly applied within the broader ecosystem. 

"When connecting a high-speed analog module to an FPGA platform, the right
design tools are critical for developing systems efficiently," said Ken
Karnofsky, senior strategist, Signal Processing, MathWorks. "During the
conference, attendees will learn how MATLAB and Simulink can be used to develop,
model and deploy high-performance signal processing systems."
