Fountain Valley, CA, United States, 2007/02/23 - Training course for Nexperia Media Processors from NXP Semiconductors, including PNX1500, PNX1700, and PNX8550/8950 processor families. Featuring Set-Top Box development using NXP’s PNX8950 Programmable Media Processor.
Momentum Data Systems is sponsoring a Nexperia/TriMedia training course in Fountain Valley, CA during 2007. The first session will be given during the week of March 12 – 16, 2007. The course is taught by Dr. Chris Bore, of Bores Signal Processing, who has been teaching media processing classes through several generations of Nexperia/TriMedia device hardware and development software.
The course is aimed at Software and Systems engineers who need to quickly learn how to develop audio and video processing software for set-top boxes, digital media adaptors, security applications, custom video processing systems, video and audio codecs, etc. The focus is on Nexperia Media Processors from NXP Semiconductors, including PNX1500, PNX1700, and PNX8550/8950 processor families.
Real-world development techniques are emphasized, including development software, media processing frameworks, hardware reference design usage, and hardware development platforms. Also, in-depth coverage is given to CPU architecture and TSSA (TriMedia Software Streaming Architecture) programming, software optimization, and creating new software components.
The course is structured to allow different "topic streams" depending on the needs of different attendees. For example, those interested only in set-top box development might only attend Monday and Tuesday of the week. Those interested only in TSSA techniques might only attend Wednesday and Thursday classes. Those that want to learn everything would attend the entire week, Monday through Friday.
The price of the classes depends on how many days are attended. 2 days are $1700. 3 days are $2400. 4 days are $3000. 5 days are $3500. All prices are in $US. Other 2007 classes are tentatively scheduled in Fountain Valley, CA, during the weeks of June 18, September 24, and December 3.
More information on the classes (including brochures) and the current schedule is available from the MDS website.
