Since the early 1920’s, the source of microwave power generation has traditionally been vacuum tubes and magnetrons. Some high power RF applications today still rely on vacuum tube technology, even though there has been a multitude of advances in solid state RF power generation. This class will cover the technological advantages of solid state including dynamic range control, spectral purity, manufacturing economies of scale and product longevity.
Learn about wireless trends and solutions for home, enterprise, industrial and infrastructure markets. Includes discussion on the QorIQ LS Series platform for 802.11ac, Kinetis platform for 802.15.4 and BLU for home and enterprise IoT control.
From solving a simple problem - How did a 1980s TV 'talk' to your new Video Cassette Recorder (VCR)? - The Inter-Integrated Bus has solved many of today's low speed communication problems. Known affectionately as the I2C (pronounced eye-squared-see) bus, just two wires can connect a variety of electronic components that help us enjoy many products from Smartphones to Cloud Server farms. In industry the I2C bus is a simple and reliable link for sensors, indicators, human interface, and behind-the-scenes equipment set up and control. We talk about how it works, and what it can do for your next electronics project. Watch Video Presentation
Learn how to easily drive powerful three-phase brushless DC (BLDC) motors which require large field effect transistors (FET). This training will cover how to quickly use a three-phase pre-driver IC in order to control a BLDC motor with protection and diagnosis as well as relevant current and voltage measurements for secure, safe, and accurate control. This course will be based on KDS, Processor Expert MCU agnostic analog software component, and complete Freedom development platform including MCU FRDM-KV10Z, 3-phase FET pre-driver expansion board FRDM-GD3000EVB and a power stage accessory board FRDM-PWRSTG1EVB. All participants will receive a free hardware development kit for BLDC motor control applications support.

New entrepreneurs and innovators today can quickly prototype, thanks to the new Maker movement. This seemingly endless world of possibilities, however, hits a strong limitation when it comes to manufacturing a product in mass production, due to a missing step, or link, between making a proof of concept and manufacturing it. This speech, will show how SECO picked up on the gap between Makers and Industry, by fusing its embedded expertise with the newly acquired Maker Movement experience, through its community movement and board: UDOO.
This technical lecture presents how Toradex built a balancing robot demo application using the new i.MX 7's heterogeneous asymmetric architecture. i.MX 7 features a secondary Cortex-M4, which can be used for real-time or low-power applications. We will discuss how to make use of the secondary core with a FreeRTOS based firmware implementing the closed loop controller to keep the robot balanced upright. On the powerful main CPU complex, a dual Cortex-A7, Linux is running a Qt based user interface. We will go into details about the rpmsg/OpenAMP based messaging offerings provided by NXP. The robot demo application makes use of rpmsg to communicate between the two independently running processor cores and operating systems.
This class will show the benefits of NXP devices for 3D printing technology. The lecture will look at using microcontrollers, analog products, MOSFETs and other standard products as well as software algorithms like BLDC motor control to create a 3D printer.
Learn how to improve your design cycle time and system efficiency with the new Kinetis Motor Suite (KMS) software solution. Built on the high performance Kinetis V Series MCUs, KMS makes motor control simple for any experience level. In this hands-on class we will take you from initially turning you own motor to building your first custom application using KMS. Bring your own PMSM motor and learn how to get it spinning and tuned in minutes.
All MOSFETs are NOT the same, a truism particularly relevant to motor control. The session will explain how feedback from 50+ companies active in this field has given rise to NXP’s unique MOSFET portfolio and roadmap designed specifically for battery-powered motor control applications. From drones and power tools, to vacuum cleaners and electric lawnmowers, NXP now offers exceptional power components to compliment the company’s microcontroller products. The latest 300A MOSFETs and example Freedom board designs will be demonstrated. Watch Video Presentation
