SINGAPORE, Dec. 29, 2014

Avnet Electronics Marketing Asia (http://www.em.avnetasia.com/), an operating group of Avnet, Inc. (http://www.avnet.com) (NYSE: AVT) marked the conclusion of its hallmark event, X-fest 2014 with the last technical seminar held in Hangzhou, China after a successful six weeks run in 15 cities across Asia. More than 4,000 engineers across Asia benefitted from the practical, how-to training workshops, setting a new record-breaking attendance for the biennial seminar.

In China alone, 3,100 engineers participated in the full day seminar which featured twelve technical courses from three educational tracks: Zynq and the IoT, Design Essentials, and Techniques and Applications.

"Avnet is committed to deliver continuous technical trainings of the breeding edge technology, which have over the last 15 years, delivered immediate and practical benefits to enhance our customers'' design engineering capabilities," said Stephen Wong, President, Avnet Electronics Marketing Asia. "The engineers who have participated in X-fest have strengthened their knowledge of how to use Zynq and FPGAs in their systems as well as to determine which software, tools, development kits and third parties IPs are available to enhance their design efforts. They have also built a better understanding of components that sit next to the SoC/FPGA, and how to integrate them in a complete system. The knowledge gained will help improve a designer's efficiency, reduce risks and
shorten their total system design cycle time."
