  • William Wadkins (Speaker) Product Manager - FPGA, Digilent Inc. Full-time


Speaker: William Wadkins, Digilent Inc.

As more RF communications, test, software defined radio (SDR) and other similar applications press the technology further, Digilent has been hard at work to not only keep up the pace but also explore ways to influence the direction of this evolution. We're aiming to harness our unique knowledge of FPGAs, instrumentation, and software to fill the existing void of products that do all three areas well. The Eclypse Z7 forms a new ecosystem that includes high-speed Zmod ports using the open source SYZYGY standard, a development board featuring Xilinx’s Zynq SoC technology, and pre-built Linux images accompanied by the API for bulk data transfer. With this system, embedded Linux developers can leverage the power of FPGA while possessing minimal hardware experience. The Eclypse Ecosystem is an ideal solution for edge-computing, medical, and communications applications. Engineers all over the world use Digilent Test and Measurement devices to decrease their design cycle time and increase their impact by always having an oscilloscope, logic analyzer, waveform generator and more within reach. Our line of Test and Measurement products enables engineers to continue their designs in the library, home office, or even a coffee shop without having to reserve a lab that has all the necessary equipment.
