Mechanical engineers who want to learn more about LEDs will have an opportunity next Wednesday, September 29th in the Chicago area. Designing With LEDs, a seminar and hands-on workshop, will help engineers learn how to save power, reduce space, manage heat and use LED color in a broad array of applications. The seminar, to be held in Rosemont, IL, on September 29th, will be part of a three-day event that includes Design & Manufacturing Midwest and four other trade shows.
In addition to the sessions on power management, packaging, connectors and high brightness LEDs, the seminar will also include a pair of targeted presentations for mechanical engineers. National Semiconductor will anchor a session called, “What Mechanical Engineers Should Know About LEDs,” and Cool Innovations will discuss “Cooling High Brightness LEDs With Natural Convection.”
The seminar, sponsored by Design News and EDN magazines, is aimed at circuit designers, lighting component designers, systems architects, LED lighting designers and mechanical project engineers who want to learn more about LEDs.
If you’re developing an embedded monitoring and control application, then you’ll want to take note of the upcoming Design News Continuing Education Center class, “Embedded Development Using Microchip Microcontrollers and the CCS C Compiler."
At the recent Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, 3,600 exhibitors demoed new products, most of which used sensors. Accelerometers, magnetometers, gyroscopes, cameras, touch screens, infrared and radar sensors endowed products with the ability to see, hear, and feel.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
