The Design Automation Conference (DAC) will be taking place this month from June 6-9 at the Austin Convention Center in Austin, TX. It is recognized as the premier conference for design and automation of electronic systems. There is an entire section dedicated to the growing maker movement this year, so Digilent will be exhibiting in the Maker Market!
At Digilent, our mission is to help create more engineers by providing development boards and instruments for rapid prototyping. It’s our common phrase, “Engineers are also makers”. Thus, we will be present at DAC 2016 for the first time to highlight our new hardware platforms for engineers and makers, including Arty and chipKIT Wi-Fire, EDN hot 100 products of 2015, and the Nexys Video and Genesys 2, our HD video processing platforms. In addition, we will feature our Analog Discovery 2, a high performance portable all-in-one instrument.
One of the must-see demos that we will be showcasing is measuring the passive low-pass filter on the embedded System-on-Chip (SoC) platform. We will create a Linux machine powered by Zybo so that the waveform of the passive low-pass filter will be acquired through an Analog Discovery 2 and displayed in WaveForms 2015. This was one of the most popular demos at Embedded World 2016!
The other popular demo is high definition (HD) video processing powered by Nexys Video. It was featured by Embedded Computing Design in Embedded World 2016 and picked up by the Xilinx Xcell daily blog.
Come to see us at booth 939 in the maker market and check out all of our interesting demos. Learn how to start your own fun project and find out how to enter for a chance to win a Zybo! No admission fee is required.
