Welcome back to the Digilent blog!
Xilinx University Program and Digilent China, our licensed partner in China, recently attended the Teaching Electronics Innovation Technology for Higher Education Conference 2014. The conference was organized by 360 Electronic Engineering Technology, one of the most popular engineering education portals in China. This conference is held for a month across China in Beijing, Shanghai, Harbin, Xian, Nangjing, Wuhan, Chengdu, and Guangzhou. The theme of this year’s conference is Embedded Systems Training and Practice. Over 500 educators, including those from Tsinghua University and Shanghai Jiao Tong University, participated in the conference.
Mr. Kevin Xie, Xilinx University Program Manager in China, presented about the All Programmable Portable Lab using ZYBO and Basys 3 powered by Xilinx 7 series FPGA. Mr. Frank Zhao, Director of Educational Initiative at Digilent China, spoke about using ZYBO and Pmods to build the SMART Intelligence System.
National Instruments (NI), our parent company, also attended the conference. Mr. Bin Li from the NI China academic team gave a talk of Do Engineering. It was a very unique experience and a fantastic event!
