Managers of Xilinx based programs are under pressure to produce quality results on time and on budget. They don’t have time to reinvent the wheel or deal with avoidable problems. Recognizing and mitigating risk, knowing how to accelerate schedules, along with handling project issues and additional costs, are all facets that can make or break a project…especially with challenging designs.

When managers have a working knowledge of the range of Xilinx devices, hardware & software development tools, and emerging applications, they can help their team make better decisions. From device selection to understanding the challenges engineers face, developing a working knowledge of Xilinx devices and tools can help managers accelerate projects and take the mystery out of FPGAs and Adaptive SoCs.



The Manager’s Unique Perspective

Engineers are focused on the highly technical aspects of Xilinx hardware and software, and the wide range of Xilinx training is traditionally geared toward broadening that expertise. Managers, however, have a unique perspective. For Xilinx based projects, management’s commitment to methodology is essential to a project’s schedule and budget. With the right tools, a manager can really make a difference.

That’s why Bottom Line Technologies (BLT), a Xilinx Authorized Training Provider and Certified Alliance Member, realized the need to provide training specifically for managers, geared toward their roles and perspectives.


Xilinx for Managers Workshop

BLT Training’s Xilinx for Managers workshop provides a thorough, less-technical understanding of Xilinx devices and tools, illuminates best practices to effectively design with Xilinx solutions and make the most out of engineering resources, and explores techniques and methodologies for project success.

In this course, BLT is sharing their knowledge gained from the hundreds of FPGA/Adaptive SoC projects they have managed over the past 3 decades. Learn from their successes (and missteps) on how to make projects go smoother and help engineers be more productive.
