Training centre for FPGAs and solution stacks
Lattice Semiconductor has announced an agreement with Krassin Consulting to establish the Lattice Education Competence Center (LEC2), a comprehensive training centre. The LEC2 will provide Lattice’s customers and partners with the hands-on product training and application design expertise needed to get Lattice-based solutions to market quickly and easily.
Focused solely on low-power Lattice FPGAs and award-winning solutions stacks, the LEC2 will help customers design and implement solutions for the industrial, automotive, communications, and computing markets.
Eugen Krassin is the owner of Krassin Consulting and founder of PLC2, a field application engineer (FAE) training and design services company. Krassin said: “We are excited to work with the company who has modernised the low-power FPGA. The Lattice Nexus platform is a completely redesigned FPGA fabric based on a 28 nm FD-SOI process technology that delivers previously unavailable levels of low-power performance, reliability, and ease-of-use to the FPGA ecosystem. Lattice technologies are enabling FPGA-based solutions that were previously not possible.”
Esam Elashmawi, Chief Strategy and Marketing Officer at Lattice, added: “Eugen Krassin and his team bring decades of combined FPGA expertise to the LEC2. We look forward to seeing this partnership facilitate more innovative application designs based on Lattice FPGAs and solutions stacks so OEMs can add cutting-edge technologies like Edge AI and smart vision to new and existing product designs.”
First-hand knowledge is increasingly essential for the successful implementation of new technologies. Only well-trained engineers can cope with the design demands placed on them in the time allotted. The LEC2 will help customers and partners train their engineers and technicians to be experts in the use of Lattice FPGAs and solutions stacks to address their design challenges.
The LEC2 uses an extensive and structured training program covering the entire development process – from initial application concept to physical implementation. The structured training program is offered in different formats (on-line, in-person, and pre-recorded webinars) that engineers can choose from based on their specific needs.
