About this course

Because Micros and FPGAs are so ubiquitous and are available in a large variety of performance levels, it is not always easy to decide which timing sources to use as the required input clocks.  This class focuses on the key concepts a digital designer needs to understand the various timing source parameters. Next, the class provides relevant, practical approaches to selecting the right timing source for your application. After attending this class, you will be able to choose the best timing source solution for your devices, thereby reducing time-to-market and achieving reliability, performance, and cost-effectiveness.
