Xilinx for Managers

Managers of Xilinx-based programs are under pressure to produce quality results and don’t have time to reinvent the wheel or deal with avoidable problems. Recognizing and mitigating risk, knowing how to accelerate schedules, along with handling issues and additional costs, are all facets that can make or break a project… especially with new or challenging technologies.

Xilinx for Managers addresses these issues. BLT has been involved with hundreds of FPGA/SoC designs in over three decades and has directed the efforts of hundreds of engineers. We’ll teach you how to accelerate your projects and turn the mystery of FPGA/SoCs into a straightforward discipline.

While BLT’s other courses are targeted at hard-core engineers, expanding and deepening their knowledge, this course offers a management perspective.

For Xilinx-based projects, management’s commitment to methodology is essential to a project’s schedule or budget. With the right knowledge, as a manager, you can really make a difference.
