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.
