MSC Vertriebs, Renesas Electronics and KW-Software are hosting a seminar about the TPS-1 PROFINET IO Single Chip Device Interface. The seminar will explain the use, functions and possible applications of the TPS-1. The seminar also includes practical exercises. The one-day seminar will be held in Stuttgart, Düsseldorf, Lemgo, Munich and Zurich.
eSOL introduced the eT-Kernel SDK, which is a new, ready-to-use software platform. The SDK enables software developers to build application frameworks out of the box. The eT-Kernel SDK is based on the highly reliable eT-Kernel RTOS, which is ideal for car navigation systems, satellites and other spacecraft, and various embedded devices. The eT-Kernel SDK includes the EC-4260 System-on-Chip (NaviEngine-MID) from Renesas Electronics. The EC-4260 features the ARM11 MPCore Multi-core processor.
Renesas Electronics recently announced their RX Design Contest. The Renesas RX Design Contest is an opportunity for embedded engineers to showcase their skills in any type of design using an RX MCU. One thousand RX62N Renesas Demonstration Kits (RDKs) will be available to contestants for free. The use of the RDK is encouraged, but not required. The top prize is $5000 and there are over $110,000 in cash and prizes. The deadline to enter the Renesas RX Design Contest is March 4, 2011.
Renesas Electronics’ 2010 Developers’ Conference (DevCon) will take place October 11-14 in Orange County, California. The embedded systems technology event features hands-on labs, lectures, panel discussions, and product demonstrations. James B. Meigs, editor-in-chief of Popular Mechanics, will be a guest speaker at the four-day DevCon. Meigs’s presentation, The Coming Age of Ubiquitous Information, is about how emerging technologies will continue to change daily life — from crash-proof cars to a crash-proof smart power grid.
