Future Electronics: new seminar series on latest tools and technologies

Future Electronics announced dates for a series of seminars presenting the latest technologies for advanced HMI designs, including microcontrollers with multi-touch and voice-recognition capabilities and tools for rapid graphics display development.

The all-day seminars, which will take place in ten European city-centre locations in October and November 2017, will address the most common issues faced by designers of industrial and medical equipment when developing sophisticated touch-sensing graphics displays. Engineers attending the seminars will learn about:

  • the improved capabilities of the 2D graphics accelerator, display controller and touch-sensing controller built into the latest microcontrollers from manufacturers such as NXP Semiconductors, STMicroelectronics and Microchip
  • quick and effective ways to implement attractive and functional display graphics using the TouchGFX graphics library and design tool
  • the extended lifetime, robust performance and support for touch-sensing with gloves and operation in wet conditions provided by high-brightness industrial displays from Tianma-NLT
  • how to interface any microcontroller or microprocessor to any display or camera using video bridging technologies from Lattice Semiconductor
  • how MCUs can support voice-recognition services, such as Google Assistant or the Amazon Alexa Voice Service
  • the HMI options available to users looking for an off-the-shelf SoM or SBC from TechNexion or iWave

Future Electronics will also demonstrate at the seminars a series of new HMI reference designs that it has developed at its Centre of Excellence in Gdansk, Poland, based on microcontrollers from NXP, ST and Microchip, and featuring TouchGFX-derived graphics on high-quality Tianma-NLT displays.

The seminar dates and venues are:

17 October            Egham, UK
19 October            Leeds, UK
25 October            Gothenburg, Sweden
13 November         Stuttgart, Germany
21 November         Nantes, France
22 November         Paris, France
23 November         Brussels, Belgium
28 November         Madrid, Spain
29 November         San Sebastien, Spain
30 November         Barcelona, Spain
