Arcobel Embedded Solutions Offers Training for Synplicity Products

4/30/2004 - As of May 2004, Arcobel Embedded Solutions will be Synplicity's Partner for product training. They will become the exclusive delivery partner for Synplify/ Synplify PRO training activities for the region Benelux.

Arcobel will provide the basic and advanced trainings on a regular base and fixed time schedule at commercial pricing. You can subscribe to these trainings via the website

"The Synplicity trainings 'FPGA Synthesis with Synplify Pro' and 'Advanced Synthesis with Synplify Pro' are a welcome addition to our trainings program" according to Frank de Bont who, as manager at Arcobel, is responsible for all trainings.

Besides the usual FPGA toolflow trainings there is an ever increasing need of specialised trainings in the field of synthesis, integration and simulation. For years Arcobel has been using the Synplicity tooling not only for FPGA but also for ASIC developments. For this reason it is not surprising that Arcobel and Synplicity have been making mutual approaches to set up a trainings program for the Benelux countries.

"We are very pleased to announce Arcobel Embedded Solutions as our new official training partner for the Benelux region." according to Harold Stevens from Synplicity. "Arcobel has a broad experience with the Synplicity tooling and we see this as an added value, as next to the training, the attendees can learn from Arcobel's real life ASIC- and FPGA design experience using the Synplicity tools."

Synplicity has been organizing free basic Synplify training for over 2 years now on a ad hoc basis. As the customer base is growing rapidly and designs as well as the FPGA devices are growing both in size and complexity, there is a need to offer basic as well as advanced product training on a more structured basis. Arcobel has the infrastructure and knowledge in place to take over the training responsibility for the Synplicity FPGA synthesis products.
