element14 Community and AMD host webinars on adaptive computing and simplifying motor control

element14, an Avnet Community, in collaboration with AMD, has announced a series of webinars aimed at developers and engineers interested in cutting-edge technologies.

AMD Versal Visions: Exploring the Frontier of Adaptive Computing
Date: 21st May 2024, 5:00 PM to 6:00 PM BST and 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM CEST
AMD Versal Adaptive SoCs present an innovative adaptive SoC to developers. AMD Versal Adaptive SoCs mark a significant evolution from previous generations of AMD SoCs. This webinar will introduce the AMD Versal Adaptive SoC, its unique architecture and use cases along with a demonstration of the Versal adaptive SoC’s capabilities in AI and other applications. This introduction to the AMD Versal architecture will also explore the differences between the various families of AMD Versal devices e.g., AMD Versal Prime, Premium, Edge, etc., along with delving into the different development frameworks and entry points available depending on the target application.
The webinar will conclude with a brief introduction to the range of Versal edge development boards currently in development which will broaden developers’ access to the AMD Versal portfolio.

Simplifying Motor Control with the Kria KD240 Drives Starter Kit
Date: 18th June 2024, 5:00 PM to 6:00 PM BST and 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM CEST
With the Kria KD240 Drives Starter Kit, Motor accessory pack, Kria App Store, and support for Python as well as MATLAB and Simulink flows enable developers to be spinning a motor with field-oriented control loops out-of-the-box and then onto the next step to tune the pre-built algorithms to their needs very quickly for 1-to-n independent axes of control. With a curative out-of-the box experience, entry-level developers can get started without downloading an AMD tool or having prior FPGA development experience.
In this webinar, Karan Kantharia from AMD will provide an introduction to the Kria KD240 Drives Starter Kit and how it can be used to accelerate the design of size, power, and price-sensitive industrial edge applications such as electric drives/motor control and other digital signal processing-intensive applications.
