Xilinx Inc. announced the formation of its Authorized Training Provider (ATP) network in Asia-Pacific to provide electronics design engineers across the region with FPGA design courses.

In the past year, eight ATPs operating 22 training locations in ten countries have been opened on Xilinx's latest programmable silicon solutions including both Virtex-4 and Spartan-3 90nm FPGA families. Each ATP currently provides 19 international-standard design courses covering FPGA, CPLD, VHDL/Verilog languages, DSP, embedded processing, serial connectivity and PCI solutions. The ATPs were selected because of their strong technical training track record, high-quality training facilities, and experienced training staff in programmable technologies, software and system-level design.

Design engineers can take a free online skills assessment to determine which courses are appropriate for them. They can then enroll and pay for the courses directly with the ATPs or sign up with training credits if their company has purchased a Xilinx Productivity Advantage (XPA) package.

"With the wide adoption of programmable technologies in telecommunications, consumer, automotive and industrial applications, we are experiencing high demand from our customers and the electronics design community across the region to learn about the latest PLD design methodology," said Mr. Yang Chiah Yee, Vice President of Sales, Xilinx Asia-Pacific. He added that the design cycle has become more complex as PLDs have integrated DSP and embedded processing capabilities, increasing the market need for engineers that are trained to do programmable system-level design.

Mr. David Keefe, Director, Global Services Division, Xilinx Asia-Pacific, stated "As part of our comprehensive education services framework, we are excited to work with our partners that specialize in training activities to provide the highest-quality, most cost-effective learning experience for our customers," Keefe further explained that since Xilinx is the only PLD player in the region with an ATP network, they have the best training resources and facilities to help local electronics design engineers learn how to complete their programmable designs faster, cheaper and with optimal system-level performance.
