MELVILLE, N.Y. -- Arrow Electronics Inc. and Freescale Semiconductor have teamed up to host global technology seminars in more than 60 locations on Dec. 8. The seminars will provide training on the new Kinetis(TM) microcontroller from Freescale, and how Arrow can provide ready-to-use solutions with partners Linear Technology, Redpine Signals and IAR Systems.
Seminars in the Americas, Europe and Asia will focus on the new Kinetis ARM(R) Cortex(TM)-M4 core, its portfolio of tools and software, and applications such as motor control, battery-operated devices, sensor apps and 802.11a/b/g/n connected devices. Attendees will also learn about complementary solutions such as IAR Systems Embedded Workbench for ARM(R) for building and debugging Kinetis-based embedded applications, in addition to WiFi(TM) implementation with Redpine's ultra low power modules and high-precision data conversion from Linear Technology.
"We brought together these industry-leading suppliers to provide a forum for learning about the latest products and solutions to help our customers achieve their goals," said David West, vice president supplier marketing and asset for Arrow Electronics. "These global seminars are a part of Arrow's ongoing commitment to provide the highest level of training, tools and support throughout the product development cycle, from conception to market."
Registration is free and all attendees will receive a free Kinetis Tower System kit and coupons for other Tower System boards and IAR Embedded Workbench for ARM. For a list of locations and to register for Arrow's Kinetis technology seminars, visit http://www.arrow.com/freescalektsday.

Peter Drucker famously said "Trying to predict the future is like trying to drive down a country road at night with no lights while looking out the back window." Yet in the razor's-edge world of electronics—with a lean supply chain and just-in-time demands—the need to know the future is vital.
While no one really can accurately predict the future, we can take guidance from another Drucker saying which is the best way to predict the future is to create it.
You've heard the saying "the No. 1 supply chain risk is your people." That hasn't always been the case. But today's complex global supply chain requires a new type of multitalented employee. It's one who understands, finance, marketing, economics, is savvy with technology, graceful with relationships and can think analytically.
Where are these people? Are universities properly preparing the next generation supply chain professionals? How do train your existing workforce for these new, demanding positions?
Brian Fuller, editor-in-chief of EBN, will lead a 60-minute Avnet Velocity panel discussion that will ask and answer these and other questions swirling around today's supply-chain talent challenges.
