Freescale will host its annual Designing with Freescale Solutions Seminar on Thursday, Oct. 1, at the Double Tree Hotel at 1111 Jefferson Road. Participants can register for the free full-day event online. Check-in for the symposium begins at 7:45 a.m. with the opening session beginning at 8:45 a.m.

More than 200 participants from businesses and universities in the Northeast are expected to attend. Participants can meet with industry subject matter experts and explore new advancements in embedded systems design through hands-on training, laboratory demonstrations and presentations highlighting development tools, reference designs, customer products, student applications and projects. Computer engineering students from RIT’s Kate Gleason College of Engineering will display research projects, and a product trade show takes place throughout the day.

It is open to design engineers, engineering faculty and students, industry partners and executive managers. The seminar highlights technology options from the smallest microcontrollers to the complex networking infrastructure that powers the Internet of Things such as Smart Homes, Cities or Automobiles. For example, “smart” cars can focus on the driver through telematics and streaming video, and engage with smart cities, reacting to traffic flow, car-to-car communication.

Topics will include: Healthcare and fitness wearable solutions using the WaRP reference platform and Kinetis MCU, i.MX and sensor products; Kinetis Design Studio and SDK for project creation, boot-up, board setup, interrupt handling, HAL, driver implementation and debugging; WaRP deep-dive into sensor drivers and the parts of the Android software stack; the new i.MX 6SoloX product family unique delivery of a low power heterogeneous asymmetric architecture solution to enable secure and connected homes and vehicles; as well as Kinetis V Series Overview, the new 64-bit ARM® Cortex ® -A53 and A57-based QorIQ processors and RF products that enable communications, radar and EW solutions and QorIQ processors for safe and secure avionics, airborne electronics, transportation signaling, autonomous vehicles, UAV and robotics solutions.
