Nordic – Global seminar to deliver free high-intensity training to embedded systems engineers (nRF51 Series)Aug 15 2012 - Design Applications [More Design Applications Articles]
To be held in sixteen separate locations in the U.S, Asia, and Europe, between September 17 and October 29, and designed to coincide with the launch of its ground-breaking nRF51 Series of 2.4GHz SoCs, the Nordic Semiconductor Global Tech Tour will take a team of the company’s top wireless application technical experts on the road to deliver a free, high-intensity training seminar. The seminar is designed to get embedded systems engineers up-to-speed within a day on how to build their first – or next generation – Bluetooth Smart or ANT+ wireless smartphone application accessories (‘appcessories’).
Each seminar is designed to be intensive, fun, and fully hands-on, and will include a detailed technical walk-through starting from a ULP wireless sensor within an appcessory through how it wirelessly connects to a smartphone and ending with how this all interfaces to a developer’s app running on the smartphone’s operating system. The agenda will include an overview of ULP wireless, Nordic’s latest nRF51 Series SoCs, Bluetooth low energy (including Bluetooth Smart) qualification, and a full afternoon of software development application examples taken from Nordic’s brand new nRF51 SDK (Software Development Kit) which each participant will be able to take home free-of-charge.
“Each of these Global Tech Tour seminars is designed to be far more than a set of presentations given in PowerPoint format,” said John Leonard, tactical marketing manager, Nordic Semiconductor. “They will be a genuine and unique opportunity for smartphone app developers to kickstart their next Bluetooth Smart or ANT+ application accessory within a single day with the help of some of the world’s most experienced and knowledgeable ULP wireless application engineers and system software architects. In fact I would not be surprised if a sizeable number of participants went away with the knowledge they need to start building their first or next generation smartphone appcessory immediately.”
The Global Tech Tour will start in the U.S. on September 17 starting at Minneapolis and then travelling to San Jose in California (Sep 19), Orange County in Irvine (Sep 21), and ending in Boston on September 24. This will be followed by an 8-location tour in Asia Pacific starting in India (Bangalore) on October 3 and then travelling to Singapore (Oct 5), Taiwan (Oct 8), and then onto China – Shenzhen (Oct 10), Shanghai (Oct 12), and Beijing (Oct 15) – followed by South Korea (Seoul) on October 17 and ending in Japan (Tokyo) on October 19. A final European leg of the tour will then begin in Amsterdam in the Netherlands on October 22, moving to Paris, France (Oct 24), Munich, Germany (Oct 26), and ending in Copenhagen, Denmark (Oct 29), says the company.Electropages - Electronics Components News, From Leading Electronics Distributors.
