The Avnet Speedways were specific to North America, although they also ran events in Europe earlier this summer. In Europe we are also working with Doulos on seminars and they will be hosting several events in Germany with MSC our local distributor there. In general thought check with Doulos for European options. http://www.doulos.com/content/training/ARM_RG_CortexM3.php

Glad that you enjoyed the seminar. You were fortunate to have 2 of Avnet's best FAEs running the class. Sharps... you can request similar content/training from your European Actel contact. NOTE: The discount for the Keil/ARM tools is 25% off the web resale... so attendees are able to save $1K! (Or $100 off ULINK2) GetSmart!

Dare I say $%^&% -- take me outside and spank me now! I'll see if I can tweak that....

I think you mean Avnet. Maybe if they would have provided a bit better breakfast you would have got the name right...

What are your experiences with regard to mastering the design tools associated with Actel's SmartFusion mixed-signal FPGAs

michigan0 Sang Kim First, 28nm bulk is in volume manufacturing for several years by the major semiconductor companies but not 28nm FDSOI today yet. Why not? Simply because unlike 28nm bulk the LDD(Lightly Doped Drain) to minimize hot carrier generation can't be implemented in 28nm FDSOI. Furthermore, hot carrier reliability becomes worse with scaling, That is the major reason why 28nm FDSOI is not manufacturable today and will not be. Second, how can you suppress the leakage currents from such ultra short 7nm due to the short channel effects? How thin SOI thickness is required to prevent punch-through of un-dopped 7nm FDSOI? Possibly less than 4nm. Depositing such an ultra thin film less then 4nm filum uniformly and reliably over 12" wafers at the manufacturing line is extremely difficult or not even manufacturable. If not manufacturable, the 7nm FDSOI debate is over!Third, what happens when hot carriers are generated near the drain at normal operation of 7nm FDSOI? Electrons go to the positively biased drain with no harm but where the holes to go? The holes can't go to the substrate because of the thin BOX layer. Some holes may become trapped at the BOX layer causing Vt shift. However, the vast majority of holes drift through the the un-dopped SOI channel toward the N+Source,...
