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 presentation will present a simple EM physics and geometry based approach to designing power distribution networks on PCBs. From input power connection to the IC die, the simple rules discussed can be used to reduce power supply noise and improve EMC.
Charging smartphones without the need to plug in a charging wire increases convenience and enables on-the-move charging in public spaces. First generation wireless chargers consist of over 100 components and are too expensive for mass market adoption. The NXQ1TXH5 is a one-chip Qi low power wireless charging transmitter integrating all the digital, analog and power functions for a Qi wireless charger. The high integration enables a very low component count and an easy to design wireless charger. This also reduces the cost of a wireless charger by as much as a factor 3. The NXQ1TXH5 is a real digital plug & play platform without the need for external analog design effort. A 2-layer PCB with signal & power routing at the top layer and a full copper bottom layer for thermal performance is all you need. Connect power supply and decoupling at the input and an LC circuit at the output to transmit the power to the receiver, and your wireless charger is ready to go! Watch Video Presentation

Wayland and Weston are gaining popularity as Window Manager and Compositor on Linux, and they are part of our reference board support package (BSP). This lesson dives deep into the setup of Wayland/Weston on custom BSPs, enabling xWayland, and successful configuration of advanced multi-display and multi-input setups on i.MX applications processors.
In this session, Linear Technology will provide detailed design guidelines for robust and scalable power solutions for the latest QorIQ processors. Using proven NXP reference design examples for the T1023, LS1043, LS1046 and LS1088 this session will explore the key considerations of each design and show you how to leverage and scale the reference designs for your applications.
As connected edge devices gain momentum with consumers, the security approaches and assumptions of the past will fail and create new threats and vulnerabilities to consumer safety and privacy. Additionally, the cost for security in mobile phones, tablets, and PCs will present a challenge for applications such as occupant sensors and heart rate monitoring patches. Lastly, the teams of security experts in connected industries do not yet exist at suppliers who are connecting products to the network. Join this session to learn how industries are providing cost effective, highly secure, certified hardware that can hasten the learning cycle for emerging edge node applications, bring solutions for security, drive down costs, and limit the supplier specific required expertise.
This beginning hands-on session will walk you through the steps to configure the device and boot U-Boot. Learn how to configure the device reset control word (RCW), flash the device, and debug U-Boot. This session will use the CodeWarrior Development Studio for ARM®v8 ISA to boot the QorIQ LS1021A Reference Design Board (RDB).
With the trend of frequent and remote software updates on the vehicle, the need of managing this properly at the microcontroller is critical. This session will present the challenges on microcontroller reprogramming and how our S32K144 microcontroller properly addresses it safe and efficiently.
The CodeWarrior Development Suite for the QorIQ LS series includes a variety of tools targeted at analyzing the operation and performance of a multicore Linux system. Tools utilitize hardware trace and system logs to monitor operation and performance. CodeWarrior Development Suite includes tools for performance analysis with the Hierarchical Profiler, Flat Profiler and CodeCoverage; path analysis with Timeline and CallTree; real-time monitoring with DebugPrint and TraceCommander in addition to interval profiling.
The I2C bus has expanded from its humble beginnings in 1980s home electronics to both small and large scale systems in the modern world. Applications range from Smartphones to Server farms, and while they're true to the original simple signaling protocol other I2C bus components are needed to expand, adapt or buffer those signals. We take an in depth technical look at the simple Bus Buffer. Often needed, and seldom understood. Watch Video Presentation
Designer have a simple way to achieve functional safety standards with NXP's functional safety microcontroller portfolio. During this session we will cover how functional safety applies to both the automotive and industrial markets and the support NXP offers in each step. Watch Video Presentation
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

The standard CAN protocol has been extended into CAN Flexible Data (FD) to provide higher bandwidth while keeping the physical characteristics that have made it the most popular automotive in-vehicle communications protocol . This presentation will provide an overview of the changes to the standard as well as address the challenges faced while rolling out and implementing the technology. Watch Video Presentation
White box switches are network switches that are sold independent of the software that will run on them. Open Network Linux (ONL) is used as the basis for the "network operating systems" that run on the switches. Open Network Install Environment (ONIE) is used to create the software used to install the networking operation system onto the switch. This presentation highlights NXP's involvement in ONL/ONIE on the QorIQ P2041 and QorIQ T2080 platforms as well as the roadmap for LS2085. This session will expand on NXP's approach to ONL/ONIE and the white box market. Watch Video Presentation
Aimed to be a hands-on the exercise would consist in using a vision processor to run CNN on various pictures to recognize traffic signals (Stop, Turn, Yield, etc). First we will cover basic concepts on machine learning for the algorithms to be used. After the class part is over, we will use a vision processor to run CNN to recognize between traffic signs and no traffic signs.
