2nd Workshop on Fast Design of Digital Systems


The Workshop on Fast Design of Digital Systems is a two-day event aimed at researchers and hardware engineers and covers the fast design of digital systems (e.g. FPGA, ASIC) with the electronic design tool AHIR. AHIR enables the hardware compilation of a circuit description. The input entry is a high-level programming language and the output is fully functional VHDL. All sessions are composed of theory and practice. Examples will be tested on FPGA boards. In day 1 there will be an overview on the latest FPGA trends provided by AVNET-Silica Engineers. This is the second edition of the Workshop, the first one took place in 2018.
