Connectivity is the name of the game in today’s most advanced electronic products. Hot application topics include Ethernet, USB, TCP/IP and ZigBee™ technology. The afternoon Advanced Connectivity Solutions seminar discusses all of these standards-based embedded applications. If you start from scratch, the newest standard for wireless networks, ZigBee, has over 12,000 pages of documentation and can take you days or even weeks to get up to speed. Microchip’s experts have condensed ZigBee and the other network standards documentation into concise course content and added systems’ demonstrations to simplify and reinforce the training process.
Find out how these networks operate, the reality of expected data rates, and how to get the most out of them. Using some of our newest products, we will show you how easy it is to add any of these to your next design. If you have an upcoming project that involves one or more of these networks, the payback will be immediate. And you can get started right away with the new PICDEM™ HPC Explorer demo board that is included in the registration price.
If you are just getting started using microcontrollers, our FREE morning Introductory Embedded Control Solutions seminar is for you. Hot components are a major concern in system design, whether it involves safety, functionality, or reliability. The Introductory Embedded Control Solutions seminar targets embedded control designers who are new to the PIC® microcontroller architecture or analog designers who need to learn how to integrate digital components into their applications. This session focuses on an application that uses temperature as the common theme and provides real world examples for getting up to speed on 8-bit microcontrollers. Starting with temperature limits, and progressing to displays, feedback for protection, and data logging with USB connectivity, the session goes from very simple to complex applications at a manageable pace and uses Microchip analog products that make temperature measurements easier.
The true value of these seminars is best judged by previous attendees, who said,
“Excellent product overview.”
“Wide range of solutions.”
“Microchip has a good analog capability product line”
“The PIC microcontroller is variable, flexible and easy to migrate from chip to chip.”
“Many new Microchip products and upgrade path.”
By attending one of these seminar sessions, you will appreciate how easy it is to get started in new applications with PIC microcontrollers and related analog products at either the beginner or advanced level. Both seminars will explain the software that Microchip provides and the different types of tools, including demo boards that are available. The flexibility and versatility of PIC microcontroller products simplify your job, and attending one of the 2005 seminars will make it even easier to get started.
