Beginning 2016, the European New Car Assessment program (NCAP) will allocate increased scoring measures for pedestrian detection capabilities. This means that any car fitted with technologies that enable detection of a pedestrian in a hazardous situation and as a result perform collision avoidance measures shall be rewarded with an increased NCAP score. These systems must be designed and manufactured based on a solid automotive development flow. This session will address the vision processing requirements for pedestrian detection and provide training on how vision algorithms may be implemented to respond to NCAP requirements in a safe, secure and reliable way.
Attendees will be taught the pros, cons, and differences between Accelerometers, Magnetometers, Gyroscopes, and Pressure Sensors. This will be followed by hand-on labs using time, frequency, and sensor fusion dataloggers. A Java based GUI will be used to implement and explore different sensor algorithms before testing them on real embedded hardware. By the end of this hands-on class, the attendees will have gathered experience in using specific enablement tools to recognize a variety of motion/events and recognize most complex sensor patterns.
This session will provide an opportunity to view a demo with the QorIQ LS1021A Tower board. We will go over using CodeWarrior for Digital Networking ARM®-based products, learn how to use the Processor Expert for QCS tool to generate RCW, how to load up uboot and RCW to the Tower board, and gain experience with the SDK.
This session provides an overview on the security technologies Freescale offers to secure a system through two complementary technologies: 1) the Trust Architecture already present in QorIQ P and T series including Secure Boot and 2) the TrustZone® technology introduced in the ARM®-based QorIQ LS series processors. We will outline the motivations for offering these technologies in embedded processors and show how they can be complementary for making a final system “Trustable” in the sense it does what its users and suppliers expect it to do.
This presentation will highlight the key lessons learned of these deployments and how today's designs need to be architectured to be prepared to this massive innovation wave seen in the metering space including wide variety of markets requirements, wide variety of networks topologies, wide variety of communications protocols and silicon innovation acceleration. The presentation will also review how Freescale has developed a complete strategy around its Kinetis product line that will enable customers to quickly start their designs with low risk, high flexibility and security while being at the optimum price point.
This session provides an overview of our automotive general purpose roadmap, with microcontroller products ranging from 8KB of flash up to 2MB of flash. Come learn about our line of new ARM® Cortex®-M microcontrollers that address general purpose and low-end automotive body applications, and also our line of highly integrated mixed-signal MCUs, combining a microcontroller and high-voltage analog components in a single piece of silicon to address LIN/CAN nodes in space-constrained applications, with optional motor-control pre-drivers.
During this presentation we will explain what makes the SoloX special within the i.MX 6 family, why you should use the SoloX for your real-time product, and how you can make the most of it. We will provide an analysis of the architecture and shop a demo we developed on the SoloX reference platform. The demo will show how the M4 core controls the backlight of a LVDS with MQX and MMA8451Q accelerometer input (placeholder for a sensor/real time processing), and will the A9 for advanced UI (HTML 5 + Node.js). To emphasize the advantage of such heterogeneous architecture, we will load/unload the A9 CPU via an button, to show that the UI is degraded, but the real-time processing is not.
The Kinetis software development kit (SDK) provides a comprehensive software framework for Kinetis MCU-based applications. Join this session to get hands-on experience with the basics of Kinetis SDK, including MCU boot-up, board setup, interrupt handling, HAL and drivers.
This session will give you an understanding of how power is dissipated in a motor driver. You will also get a hands-on demonstration showing the waveforms of the MC33926 and MC33HB2001 as they are driven into current limit.
Learn the major components of an Automotive Traction Inverter by walking through a prototype hardware and software design. I will be highlighting our IGBTs, GDICs, micros, and voltage / frequency (V/F) software to control an induction motor. This class provides a solid foundation on motor control and inverter design and an excellent class for engineers that are involved with EV systems but not yet motor control experts.
As new Automotive and Industrial systems increase their features and complexity, nowadays most of the features are being controlled by MCU upon human or mechanical interaction such as buttons, switches, sensors, etc. Along with tighter and more robust requirements, markets are pushing for the best price-per-feature solutions for switch monitoring and feature control systems. To address such needs, Freescale created the MSDI family of devices, to provide integrated solutions, with multiple switch detection channels and flexible programmability through SPI communication, addressing many different needs in the Automotive and Industrial market without the need of sacrificing space, robustness, resources and design effort related to the implementation of discrete solutions that may provide limited capabilities for today’s demanding markets.
This workshop intends to provide a basic overview of the LIN protocol and guide assistants through creating a basic LIN network with Freescale’s driver and MagniV devices. At the end of this training you will be capable of: Describing the LIN protocol and understand its main features. Create a basic LIN application with any of the devices supported by the driver.
High-level training session designed to enlighten first-time users of i.MX applications processors with three critical hardware design areas: DRAM Interface Register settings, Major Processor Power Rail Treatment, and high-speed signal layout. Available Freescale resources designed to help customers in these areas will be highlighted.
There are many stakeholders in the development of cyber security for the automotive market ranging from car makers, Tier 1/Tier 2 suppliers, service providers, governments, and consumers. This leads to wide variety of requirements, market drivers, and use cases for automotive cyber security. This session will give an overview of these with a focus on the relationship between safety and security, the emerging SAE J3061 recommended practice, and the tradeoffs involved in implementing security features in the automobile. Sample cyber security both from Freescale and 3rd-party software providers will also be described.
As geometries continue to shrink and switching speeds increase, designing electromagnetic systems and printed circuit boards to meet the required signal integrity and EMC specifications has become even more challenging. A new design methodology is required, specifically, the utilization of an electromagnetic physics-based design methodology to control the field energy in your design. This session will walk through the development process and provide guidelines for building successful printed circuited boards.
In addition to fail safe system architectures, fault tolerance is gaining more and more importance in the context of highly-automated vehicles. This session addresses the theoretical foundations about fault tolerant system architectures and shows how those can be built with Freescale microcontrollers especially in the area of Advanced Driver Assistant Systems (ADAS). Leveraging key functional safety concepts built into Freescale's Automotive product portfolio enables efficient and scalable solutions spanning the range from fail safe systems to fault tolerant and fail operational architectures.
