Embedded system developers often have the impression that adding wireless connectivity to a device is a “black art,” only suitable to be performed by hardware and software wizards. We'll provide an overview of the challenges to overcome when building connected devices. We'll show how GainSpan wizards have made adding wireless connectivity to NXP-based MCUs an easy task suitable for any muggle. We will showcase GainSpan’s easy-to-use Wi-Fi modules and features of the built-in networking stack and services that take the difficulty out of adding wireless connectivity to an embedded design using NXP MCUs by demoing wireless connectivity using the Kinetis SDK, i.MX Application processor platforms and LPCXpresso-based development board. Audience will leave the session with the knowledge and motivation to get started on integrating wireless connectivity into their next NXP-based embedded design.
For the Internet of Things (IoT) in the home to become a reality, companies need an open ecosystem approach that addresses all aspects from the IPv6 based mesh networking protocol to the end user experience. This class will explain how Thread fits into the smart home landscape, the key benefits Thread provides and how to take your Thread product concept from an idea to a product in the market using building blocks provided by NXP and other resources in the Thread ecosystem.

This session will provide an introduction to developing Made For iPod (MFi) accessories including audio, non-audio, CarPlay, AirPlay and HomeKit applications based on NXP microcontrollers (MCUs), microprocessors (MPUs), HomeKit Software Development Kit (SDK), MFi SDK, and software from NXP Professional Services.
The course will detail RFC 7668 (6LoBLE), Bluetooth® low energy 4.2 and the Internet protocol support profile that are used to transport IPv6 frames in an IoT environment. The demo will be based on the Kinetis KW41 MCU.
Brillo is a lightweight OS based on Android for connected devices with a small footprint that is open, extensible and secure. Brillo extends the Android platform to all your connected devices so they are easy to set up and work seamlessly with each other and your smartphone. It comes with 'Weave' Googles communication API, which easily allows Brillo devices to communicate and exchange with each other or store data in the cloud. In this class we will introduce you to Brillo and how NXP has worked with Google to bring Brillo to the i.MX 6UltraLite processor and other platforms. Watch Video Presentation
Advancing technology has brought down the cost of 24 GHz radar system significantly bringing a whole range of new applications into reach. Historically radar was a pure military and industrial application due to high application costs. With the latest generation of NXP BiCMOS technology this has changed. A 24 GHz radar frontend can now be fully integrated into a single IC bringing the costs and power dissipation down to consumer levels. This opens up a whole range of applications which were previously not possible. This lecture will show the possibilities of radar in different applications such as presence detection and consumer drone collision avoidance. A live demonstration based on first test chips in combination with ARM processors will be given.
This session explain how to achieve a higher level of security with NXP's latest NFC controller solution with customizable firmware, the PN7462, using a Secure Access Module (SAM) for applications like corporate access. The session follows the NFC access control hands-on workshop with a particular focus on security. In this session the PN7462 development kit will be used to demonstrate how high security using MIFARE DESFire EV1 and a SAM can be achieved.
By adding NFC to a door lock, the same smartcard technology that protects some of the world’s most valuable objects can now be brought to everyday places like homes, apartment buildings, and hotels. An NFC-enabled smartphone can be used to configure the lock, so homeowners can grant temporary access to a specific person or group. This hands-on session demonstrates how the latest NFC controller solution with customizable firmware, the PN7462, can be used for access applications. For the demonstration the PN7462 development kit will be used together with the software example to develop a door access application.
This session will provide a detailed introduction to NXP's HomeKit Software Development Kit (SDK) architecture, APIs and code adaptors.
