To allow engineers to benefit from hands-on online software design training, Hardent has redeveloped its Xilinx embedded software design courses using the ZYBO Zynq Board.
Hardent, a leading Xilinx® Authorized Training Provider and ARM® Approved Training Center, has announced that it has redesigned its embedded software design training for the online classroom. The training is provided live by expert trainers and a Digilent® ZYBO Zynq™-7000 development board is made available to each student in the course to assist embedded software developers in reducing time-to-market using the latest technologies.
As embedded software design technologies continue to evolve at an ever-increasing pace, more and more engineers are looking to expand their expertise through embedded software design training in order to accelerate development and enhance product quality. “An in-person course is obviously the preferred manner,” says Simon Robin, president of Hardent, Inc., “but nowadays many engineers are short on time and budget, and most developers are looking to stay up-to-date with online training.” Online training courses at Hardent focus on the practical aspects of embedded software design, enabling engineers to apply their newly developed skills in their current projects while acquiring experience with the latest tools.
The first of Hardent’s embedded software courses to use this new online format is Xilinx’s “Embedded Design with PetaLinux Tools.” To ensure that the online embedded software design training includes practical hands-on exercises, Hardent provides participants with the opportunity to either borrow or purchase the ZYBO Zynq development board. Students who choose to purchase the board have the opportunity to re-run the training labs or use the board for their own development projects. “As the ZYBO is a feature-rich, price accessible board, it enables Hardent students to learn Xilinx’s Zynq architecture in an online setting,” says Larissa Swanland, Marketing Manager of Digilent, Inc. In addition to the ZYBO Zynq development board, each online course participant receives a set of headphones and printed training material. Throughout the session, Hardent’s experienced trainers interact live with students to assist them with any questions they may have relating to the course or their current embedded design projects.
Hardent offers a wide variety of both in-person and online courses covering topics such as embedded software design, Xilinx FPGA training and ARM courses. Trainers at Hardent are experts in their field, bringing their real-world engineering background to the classroom. Hardent has trained over 7,000 engineers worldwide since 2007.
