Introduction to ST’s Time of Flight Technology: FlightSense
9:30 – 10:10
Presenter: John Kvam, STMicroelectronics
ST has developed and patented its own technology, called FlightSense™, using Time-of-Flight (ToF) principles in order to propose a new generation of high-accuracy proximity sensors. In this session, attendees will learn how ST’s Time-of-Flight sensor works, how to integrate it into their industrial design and understand key performance indicators. We will also go through an overview of the Evaluation Kit and supporting GUI during the session.
Getting the Most Out of ST’s Time of Flight products
10:20 – 11:00
Presenter: John Kvam, STMicroelectronics
A deeper dive into ST’s ToF technology.
Embedded Graphics Possibilities Using the STM32
11:10 – 12:00
Presenter: Steve Miller, STMicroelectronics
Looking to add an intuitive graphical user interface to your next embedded design? Need to understand which displays can be used with a microcontroller: LED, LCD, Color TFT, or MIPI-DSI? Are you aware of the graphic tool kits available to quickly create graphical images and display them with your MCU?
In this session you will learn what options are available for displaying graphics using the STM32 family of microcontrollers. The presentation will cover:
- Graphic peripherals available within the STM32 Family
- Common display types and resolutions supported
- Graphical tool kits and libraries available to assist in your next graphical user interface design
- Performance features available to fully optimize and improve STM32 CPU performance enhancing your next embedded design
An overview of the STM32 ecosystem showing available hardware, software and documentation necessary to realize your next graphics based embedded design will also be included.
Unicleo GUI to Evaluate and Configure SensorTile
1:00 – 1:40
Presenter: Mauro Scandiuzzo, STMicroelectronics
The ST SensorTile is a tiny, square-shaped IoT module that packs powerful processing capabilities leveraging an 80 MHz STM32L476JGY microcontroller and Bluetooth low energy connectivity based on BlueNRG-MS network processor as well as a wide spectrum of motion and environmental MEMS sensors, including a digital microphone.
During this session, you will learn how to do fast evaluation and development based on SensorTile and UNICLEO GUI. Using UNICLEO GUI you can configure run time the sensors without debugger, without writing code in order to achieve a Fast Prototyping, reduce time to market in a plug a play small system solution. We will also give examples of how you can use the SensorTile platform to reduce the time to market using available HW, SW, GUI and algorithms.
Understanding Bluetooth low energy (BLE) for Industrial applications
1:50 – 2:30
Presenter: Hary Radakichenane & Raffaele RIVA, STMicroelectronics
This class will focus on the key challenges of designing Bluetooth® low energy (BLE) IoT nodes for Industrial applications. Range, reliability, security, and proximity detection are among the most important aspects in this application space. To effectively address them, three key technologies will be discussed in details: Bluetooth Mesh, BLE Beacons, and simultaneous BLE and Sub-GHz communication. Participants will learn how to understand their key performance indicators and how to leverage on ST solutions for developing their Industrial applications.
ST IPAD™ technology: A key enabler for IoT miniaturization
3:00 – 3:40
Presenter: Rahul Peravali, STMicroelectronics
STMicroelectronics proprietary IPAD™ (Integrated Passive and Active Devices) technology is leading the way in reducing the footprint of peripheral electronics surrounding intelligent ICs. In addition to resistors, capacitors, and inductors, IPAD can also incorporate ESD diodes and TVS functions for high density protections, filters, and impedance matching circuits. In this discussion, attendees will learn how the broad ST portfolio can help reduce size and cost of their IoT devices.
Low Power Microphone Acquisition and Processing for Always-on Applications
3:50 – 4:30
Presenter: Sean Newton, STMicroelectronics
This session will focus on the tradeoff between performance and low power consumption in embedded IoT platforms used for always on microphone acquisition. It will show different system architectures based on Cortex®-M microcontrollers, with one microphone acquisition and processing depending on the power budget and overall system performance, targeting always-on microphone acquisition as input for automatic speech recognition algorithms.
