 Some of the comments from the participants at this particular event:

  • Lots of detailed relevant information that applies directly to my day-to-day work.
  • Will improve quality of both design and test benches a lot with a good structure

  • Every FPGA designer from our company should have been here, but too expensive

  • I think the material is need-to-know for every designer.

  • The course makes you think through how you and your colleagues company are doing things.

  • Good course. I had experienced much of the topics in one way or another in my career. But to get the stuff in one sitting makes it easier to formulate my thoughts on the topics so this was good for me.

  • Excellent!
