Semester 3 Is Getting Started

If you've perused Design News at any time over the past 12 months, you're probably aware that we offer online training through our Continuing Education Center, sponsored by Digi-Key. It started a year ago, with semester 1 running from last January through June. Semester 2 ran through the end of 2012. Semester 3 will start on January 14, with a class called Getting the Most Out of Low-Power MCUs.

The classes always run from Monday through Friday, at 2:00 p.m. ET, with a new series of classes beginning nearly every other week. But don't worry if you miss a class. They're all archived on Design News, so you can hear classes from earlier in the year or from last year, or you can re-take a class to reinforce some of the fundamentals.

Like always, this class on MCUs will run for five days, with each day going into different aspects of the MCU's implementation.

Attendees to these classes have told us they find them extremely valuable, partly because they have the ability to ask questions of the instructor each day, immediately following the class. I know I've certainly learned a lot by tuning in.

The topics will vary over the course of the year (no pun intended), and they run from a basic fundamentals level up to advanced. We've plotted the classes for the next few months, but we're happy to entertain topics for the remainder of the year.
