A modern car is more than just transport, it provides comfortable heating and cooling, navigation systems, entertainment systems, and a lot of data about the car's health and performance. Including how well you are conserving fuel or when to seek service. All of this is a challenge to present to the driver and passengers, without distraction to driving, under all conditions from bright daylight to the dark of night, in any temperature. We talk about both Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) and Light Emitting Diode (LED) component solutions that keep your dashboard simple, readable, and helpful. Watch Video Presentation

As the Smart Home starts to gather momentum, a number of competing Wireless Communication standards are fighting for dominance. With ZigBee® now becoming dominant in the low-power networking market, there is no surprise that two new low power technology Thread and Bluetooth® Low Energy with the new Mesh capability are both trying to enter this market to get a piece of the cake. Moreover competing IoT platforms from the Thread Group (Google/Nest), Allseen Alliance (Qualcomm), Apple's Homekit, the Open Interconnect Consortium (Intel) and many others are creating even more confusion. So in this confusing array of Wireless Communication standards and Iot platforms, what are the main features of each and what does it means for NXP? This session will provide an overview of these Wireless connectivity standards and IoT platforms, their capabilities, and their implication for NXP IoT. Watch Video Presentation

Countless devices are joining the Internet of Things (IoT) daily. It is a key requirement that the device architecture of the device itself is secure; above and beyond the mandatory connection privacy. Embedded devices also require a device security approach that can follow future security trends, changes, and threats throughout their entire product lifecycle. This session looks at reported cases of device vulnerability in the industry, available technology, and best practices for designing secure connected products. Based and built on the Digi ConnectCore for i.MX6UL connected SOM platform, and without the traditional burden of effort related to design and implementation.
Using Accelerometers, Magnetometers, Gyroscopes, gathering Sensor data can be tricky and not straight-forward. In this class, we will go into a Sensor Deep-Dive, where each sensor will be visualized and explained in detail. When collecting data there are several things that can make collecting the data easier, more efficient, and avoiding erroneous data all together. We will have several demonstrations and examples to show the pitfalls and successes of collecting data.
