Webinar: Optimal Microcontroller Solutions for Safety Critical Applications

Optimal Microcontroller Solutions for Safety-Critical Applications

Avnet Electronics and Texas Instruments are hosting a webinar next week. The title of the webcast is Innovation with Purpose: Optimal Microcontroller Solutions for Safety-Critical Applications. The online seminar will explain how TI’s Hercules safety microcontrollers can help optimize designs and speed time to market. The free training will take place on Tuesday, June 19 at 2:00 p.m. (EDT).

The webinar will provide a brief overview of the TI Hercules RM4 and TMS570 ARM Cortex-R4F safety microcontrollers. The webcast will also go over the integrated features that make the MCU family ideal for safety critical applications. In addition, the online seminar will illustrate the performance aspects of the Hercules safety microcontrollers’ ARM Cortex-R4F floating point CPU and peripheral interfaces (e.g. USB, Ethernet, Flexray).

Attendees of the Optimal MCU Solutions for Safety Critical Applications webinar will receive a 50% discount code for two TI kits:

  • TMDXRM48USB Hercules USB Development Kit
    Features an integrated XDS100v2 JTAG emulator, access to several key peripheral pins and powered by a PC’s USB port

  • TMS570LS31x Hercules USB Stick Development Kit
    Includes an integrated XDS100v2 JTAG emulator, access to several key peripheral pins and is completely powered by a PC’s USB port
