Arrow Electronics is hosting a series of seminars covering application and market specific technical solutions, with the first series focused on motor control applications. Industry leaders from STMicroelectronics, Texas Instruments, and Microchip Technology will discuss how to design efficiently, reduce system costs, and solve motor control issues. Additionally, the seminars will include new motor control reference designs and discounts on development tools and reference boards. The seminars started March 17 and will run through May 27.

When you think of the DARPA Robotics Challenge, you may imagine complex humanoid contraptions made of metal and wires that move like a Terminator Series T-90. But what actually happened at the much-vaunted event was something just a bit different.
Traditional dev kits are based on a manufacturer’s microcontroller, radio module, or sensor device. The idea is to aid the design engineer in developing his or her own IoT prototype as quickly as possible. A not-so-traditional IoT development kit released by Bosch aims to simplify IoT prototyping even further.
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.
