Avnet Electronics Marketing, Texas Instruments (TI) and Exosite have joined to deliver a free webinar showing engineers how to use TIs new Tiva C Series Connected LaunchPad to create solutions for cloud-based applications such as home/building automation gateways, connected human-machine interface (HMI), networked sensor gateways, security access systems, programmable logic controllers and others.
_Innovation Hour: Turning the Cloud into a Rainmaker!î is the first of a series of eight webinars to be launched in 2014 by Avnet in conjunction with TI to provide solutions around the latest industry trends and cutting-edge technology. Attendees can open a gateway to the Internet of Things (IoT) by learning from experts about TIs new Tiva C Series Connected LaunchPad and Exosites scalable cloud technologies. Using the industry’s first MCU to integrate ARM Cortex-M4 with Ethernet MAC+PHY along with highly customizable, web-based, visual analytic tools from Exosite, engineers can provide valuable, customized solutions for their target markets.
_Technology is becoming increasingly more connected, and machines increasingly more human. Imagine a trash compactor that senses when its full, and schedules itself to be picked up,î said Alex Iuorio, senior vice president, supplier management and business development, Avnet Electronics Marketing Americas. _Cloud-based platforms such as the Tiva C Series Connected LaunchPad are essential to creating breakthrough technology that can give products a competitive advantage in the marketplace.î
_The Tiva C Series Connected LaunchPad is the first cloud-enabled TI MCU LaunchPad ecosystem, and this Avnet webinar will jumpstart engineers IoT designs,î said Joe Folkens, product manager, Tiva C Series MCUs, TI. _Everything is connected to the cloud in some way, it seems, and our work with Exosite and this Avnet webinar will help launch a whole new set of applications _ the skys the limit.î
_With integrated Ethernet MAC + PHY, advanced security features, LCD controller, and sensible mix of I/O options, the TM4C129x works extremely well as a secure IoT sensor hub,î said Mark Benson, chief technology officer at Exosite. _Combined with Exosite’s cloud software platform, customers can quickly deploy differentiated connected products without re-inventing the wheel.î
Attendees can choose to participate in the live training on February 27, 2014, at 11 a.m. PST, which will feature a live Q&A session after the webinar. Alternatively, engineers can also view the webinar on demand after the live training has been broadcast. For more information, or to register for the live event, visit www.em.avnet.com/innovationhour.
