The rise in demand for higher integration, lower power and increased connectivity has placed ARM at the forefront of a technological paradigm shift; not only in the consumer market, but also branching off into other high-growth markets such as defense and medical sectors. The “Design Strategies for ARM Systems” training sessions will be delivered by world-class industry experts. They will feature an entire ecosystem of providers showcasing the latest design solutions for ARM systems. Attendees will discover new ways to integrate this sustainable, energy-efficient technology into their designs.

Engineers will also greatly benefit from learning how to leverage the many supporting technologies from Avnet’s other Design Strategies for ARM Systems partners. They will have access to partner exhibits from Atmel®, Cypress, Freescale Semiconductor, Marvell, National Semiconductor, STMicroelectronics, Spansion, Texas Instruments and Xilinx.

Attendees will be able to build their own program, choosing from various 75-minute specialized training courses which are organized into two technology areas â€" microcontrollers and application processors. The emphasis of each course will be to demonstrate practical, real-world design solutions. Featured courses include but are not limited to:

*Leveraging open-source-based tools to balance the demands of an always-on connection against the constraints of limited battery life.
*Developing high-performance signal processing algorithms in an ultra-low footprint.
*Examining how wireless protocols and off-the-shelf, integrated RF devices can enable wireless applications in low power sensor networks.

“As technology options increase, design engineers are looking for ARM technology-based solutions. At each one-day training event, Avnet will deliver the knowledge and expertise designers need, helping them to tackle existing and future design challenges and extend the life cycles of their products,” said Andy Wong, vice president, Avnet Design Services and Segment Marketing, Avnet Electronics Marketing Asia.
