Nov 19th , 2011【 Terasic Technologies 】
This year's "EDA/SOPC Technology and Research Seminar" held on November 19, 2011 and organized by Wuhan University's School of Electronic Information and Hubei EDA/SOPC Technology Research Association took off to a grand start! With the goal of raising the level of EDA/SOPC training, improving exchange of technological teaching experience, and promoting further development of research, senior research manager Rosaline Lin from Taiwan's Terasic Technologies was invited to this year's seminar to share her deep experience and laboratory applications in the field of digital television and IC design. The seminar attracted seventy-two professors from thirty-one different universities to participate, hailing from cities such as Jiangsu, Henan, and Hunan.
The seminar was hosted by Hubei EDA/SOPC Technology Research Association's executive manager/China University of Geosciences professor Guangjun Wang. Wuhan University's School of Electronic Information vice president and professor Deshi Li, Research Director / Wuhan University Professor Zhao Maotai, and Terasic Technologies' CEO Sean Peng also shared the outstanding results in the field of FPGA technology. Ms. Lin proceeded to open the seminar on aspects of digital television design and IC design, along with detailed explanations paired with block diagrams to warm up for the afternoon laboratory session. The intriguing new content from the presentation resulted in unwavering attention from the audience.
The afternoon hands-on curriculum was held in Wuhan University's Altera Joint Lab which featured 50 sets of the latest Terasic DE2-115 Development and Education Kits, perfect for design with digital TVs. The lab used was the second Joint Lab established by Altera in the university. The course focused on the introduction of digital TV chip design and developing the DE2-115 to become a television box, and included detailed Verilog tutorials, Quartus II operation, and Terasic's Wuhan branch engineers even arrived to assist the professors. Every professor was meticulous and diligent while concentrating to the very end until completing the final goal of LCD control, which made the learning process fun along a sense of accomplishment. With the completion of the workshop, all the teachers concluded that they had benefited enormously; Not only did everyone gain hands-on experience, they also learned new design skills! Every teacher expressed extreme gratitude to the Hubei EDA/SOPC Technology Research Association and Wuhan University, and was deeply impressed with the display from Rosaline Lin. We'll be sure not miss the next seminar, they said!
