Vai Logic and Technically Speaking each offer a library of more than 20 courses to customers, including FPGA design/architecture, embedded processing, DSP, HDL (VHDL/Verilog), and PCI Express® solutions.

The ATP program complements the company's Education Services curriculum, offering engineers an expanded network of local providers certified to deliver high quality Xilinx-authorized training in programmable logic and system-level design. The program provides Xilinx customers valuable assistance and instruction in maximizing the potential of the company's latest programmable silicon solutions, including both the Virtex®-5 and Spartan®-3A FPGA families.

"The Xilinx technology and customer base is an ideal fit for the skills and experience of our training personnel, and we are confident we can help designers leverage the complete benefits of Xilinx solutions, including its programmable platforms and accompanying development tools," said Vai Technology CEO Mark Kosiarek. "We look forward to a long term relationship with Xilinx and are committed to providing high quality programmable logic training to their customers in our region."

"Vai Logic is a great addition to the Xilinx ATP network," said Xilinx North American ATP Manager Jason Fegley. "Their team has a solid working relationship with our sales organization and an understanding of Xilinx customer needs. With a main training facility in Indiana, they are in a centralized location to provide a comprehensive schedule of courses for that region. By expanding the coverage offered by Technically Speaking from its original Southwest US area, access to proven expertise is provided in another important region for us, the Northwest. Our customers in all ATP regions benefit from a great educational experience to help them design better products faster with programmable solutions."

The Xilinx ATP program delivers training to engineers interested in learning how to develop low-cost, efficient programmable logic and system-level designs.
