ARM TechCon participants will have the opportunity to learn how to boost performance by leveraging custom accelerators on ARM-based SoCs with FPGA technology.
Hardent, an ARM Approved Training Center (ATC), has announced that it will be delivering a training session as part of ARM Training Day at ARM TechCon 2015. The training session will introduce developers to the concept of boosting performance by leveraging custom accelerators on ARM-based SoCs with programmable logic.
As ARM technology is deployed in more and more market segments, engineers are turning to training in order to stay up-to-date with the latest technology. ARM Training Day at ARM TechCon brings together ARM training partners from around the world to deliver technical training to attendees. Hardent’s training session, entitled “Boosting Performance from ‘C’ to Sky with Custom Accelerators”, highlights new techniques designed to help developers overcome the challenges faced when boosting software performance with hardware. The presentation will highlight how modern SoCs have combined ARM processing power with programmable logic allowing software to be offloaded to custom, scalable accelerators.
“Our training session at ARM TechCon is unique in that it highlights how software developers can explore beyond the typical hardware/software barrier by both using and producing the hardware at hand,” says Shaun Purvis, ARM accredited engineer and trainer at Hardent. “We look forward to sharing an example of a tool and design methodology that, when combined, can be used to successfully convert software into hardware.” At the end of Hardent’s training session, students will have learned how to partition a software defined system between software and hardware, convert C/C++ code to custom hardware and use cache coherent interfaces such as AXI ACP to reduce latencies associated with data transfers to and from accelerators. The training will take place on November 10, 2015 at the Santa Clara Convention Center.
