September training?

Discussion in 'Embedded' started by Richard Henry, Aug 29, 2006.

  1. We have been encouraged to spend some of our remaining training budget
    by taking a week-long seminar in September. I am looking for something
    concerning FPGA design, wireless networks, or just general engineering.
    My preference would be somewhere in southern California, but other
    places may be negotiable.

    Any suggestions?

    We can book a 7 days cruise from LA to Mexico and do hand-on
    training/experiments with FPGA. How many are coming?

    7 days cruise would be:

    Los Angeles, Cabo San Lucas, Mazatlan, Puerto Vallarta, Los Angeles

    But we probably would not leave the ship anyway, since rooms and foods
    are excellent on-board.

    We can look into interfacing portable instruments with Micro/Avr
    (always on) to FPGA/Xilinx (on and off), including issues such as power
    regulations and monitorings, battery chargings, programmings and
    debuggings. If time permitted, board layouts and mountings (Micro-lead
    frames and Ball Grid Arrays).

    If it were me, I'd save it for the Paris airshow :)

    Oh, hell, then: They've _GOT_ to spend the money - just make something

    For a price, I can give you a week-long seminar in just about anything
    you want to study!

    Good Luck!

  9. How hard would it be to carry a couple of ozs of Acapulco Gold back from
    the cruise? Like, does Customs pat you down or use dogs or anything? Or do
    they just assume that anyone who can afford a week-long cruise has better
    things to smuggle than pot? ;-)

    You do have to go through airport like security. They don't want you
    to sink the ship or bring in foreign plants (fruits and pot included)
    to the state.
