Avnet Memec, today announced a series of free, hands-on HMI applications engineering workshops in partnership with Renesas in the UK. The events will focus on the latest microcontroller and display technologies and will be supported by industry experts.
The microcontroller workshop offers a full hands-on technology experience supported by specialists from Renesas. The Renesas RX600, 32-Bit high-speed/ high-performance CPU product family will be the MCU of choice for this practical section and will be followed with a short seminar on good C programming practice provided by IAR.
The displays technology section of the day will be provided by Avnet Embedded’s technology experts who have an in-depth knowledge of the industry and its trends. The displays workshop will encompass the main touch technologies including analogue resistive, surface acoustic wave, and infrared. There will also be a discussion on the projected capacitive techniques employed in the latest Smartphone’s and tablets, and Optical Bonding, a passive enhancement method to improve sunlight readability without increasing heat and power output.
