i.MX RT Workshop
01 May 2018 - 01 May 2018
ATTENTION: THIS SEMINAR HAS BEEN CANCELED. A DATE FOR THE RESCHEDULED SEMINAR WILL BE ANNOUNCED.
Avnet Silica invites you to a one day workshop "i.MX RT and MCUXpresso hands-on training“. You will learn about NXP's new ‘Crossover’ processor, based on an ARM® Cortex®-M7 core with the best performance in its category: 3020 CoreMark score, 1284 DMIPS and 20ns interrupt latency at 600 MHz and plenty of useful peripherals. All this for a 10k pcs starting price less than 3 USD.
Intention of the workshop
Every attendee will leave the workshop with a properly set-up PC with all the needed SW and needed HW, an iMXRT-EVK evalboard will be handed out free to the attendees, to be able to start an i.MXRT without further investment in time and equipment after the workshop.
The ‘Crossover’ processors are microcontrollers built using the architecture of the well-known NXP processors (i.MX...) and offer a high level of integration, high-speed peripherals, advanced security and HW accelerators, and low-power MCU usability capable of running real-time applications.
‘Crossover’ processing defines a new standard that helps MCU designers achieve superior performance while maintaining their current microcontroller tool chain and without having to add time, cost or complexity of software development (Linux or other complex operating systems ).
The workshop will allow you to experiment directly, on the free for the workshop attendees, i.MX RT1050 Evaluation Kit the performance and the main features of the new microcontroller and the new tool MCUXpresso.
Start – morning session:
|10:45||Hands-on demonstrations and labs (testing of installations, modifying earlier projects, labs using MCUXpresso tools)|
Start – afternoon session:
|14:30||Simple FreeRTOS hands-on lab|
Please note that all attendees need to bring their own PC (standard x86, with 4GB RAM minimum, 1.5GB of available disk space - Microsoft® Windows 7, 8.1, 10 - 32-bit and 64-bit are supported) with the latest version of the MCUXpressa IDE pre-installed, as well as MCUXpresso Config tools (Windows package). You can download the tools here:
Seating is limited due to a limited amount of free i.MX RT evaluation boards. Attendees from the same company might have to share a board.
