“We’ve designed the Kinetis family of microcontrollers to be the ideal hardware and software solution in the marketplace. Avnet’s SpeedWay gives us the opportunity to teach engineers how to choose and implement this technology in their future designs”
Spend the day with Avnet and Freescale field application engineers (FAEs) and design experts, learning the fine points of Freescale’s industry leading microcontroller portfolio. The Kinetis family of microcontrollers is the first on the market to be based on the new Cortex M4 core from ARM. Hands-on labs will demonstrate ways to utilize IAR tools, MQX™ threads and MQX connectivity. Engineers will also have an opportunity to learn techniques for IAR’s kernel aware debugging and advanced MQX debugging. Attendees will also learn about the high-precision mixed-signal processing capabilities of the Cortex M4 core, and will have the opportunity to test tools from MathWorks that enable engineers to accelerate designs requiring high performance signal processing.
“We’ve designed the Kinetis family of microcontrollers to be the ideal hardware and software solution in the marketplace. Avnet’s SpeedWay gives us the opportunity to teach engineers how to choose and implement this technology in their future designs,” said Aiden Mitchell, director of industrial and multi-market microcontrollers for Freescale.
“Freescale is one of the premier leaders in microcontroller technology. This SpeedWay gives Avnet and Freescale an opportunity to introduce the latest in low-power, high performance innovations to our mutual customers – in a way that meets both their time and budget constraints,” said Chuck Delph, senior vice president of Avnet Electronics Marketing Americas.
