Title A LF-3 GHz Signal Analyzer with 100 MHz Signal Bandwidth and as much as 90 dB of dynamic range
Speaker Bob Clarke, Systems Applications Engineering Manager, Analog Devices
Abstract Even basic signal analyzers tend to be expensive. This analyzer use a variety of novel circuit techniques to maximize dynamic range and minimize cost, including quad, synchronized PLL/VCOs for 6 dB improvement in phase noise, differential signal paths to eliminate the need for shielding, microwave bandpass filters, a frequency plan that minimizes the number of needed LOs and spurs, and a bandpass Sigma Delta ADC with programmable center frequency and bandwidth.

Title Designing end to end IoT solutions in a digital age
Speaker Aiden Mitchell, Vice President IoT Global Solutions, Arrow and Matt Anderson, Chief Digital Officer, Arrow
Abstract For many companies IoT investment is likely to be one of the biggest financial and strategic commitments for their organisation. Critical factors and considerations for the IoT system selected will be security, scalability, longevity to meet future business opportunities and overall system integration.  To address these critical selection factors, Arrow will present Arrow IoT Things Evolved a solution which can accelerate customers into the IoT market and address business efficiencies and new business opportunities

 

Time 12h00 - 12h30
Title Automated debugging and test on production hardware
Speaker Jens Braunes, Product Marketing Manager, PLS
Abstract Tool automation and tool connection is an important feature users won’t miss anymore. With its powerful, flexible and open interface PLS’s Universal Debug Engine (UDE) addresses that demand. For scripting, the interface provides users an easy access to all internal functions of UDE. Tool partners can use it to build up a complete toolchain from the direct access to a real embedded system up to the model level covered by model based test tools.

 

Time 12h30 - 13h00
Title A femtoammeter reference design and development module for charged particle detection
Speaker Gustavo Castro, System Applications Engineer, Analog Devices
Abstract Different transducers employed in analytical instrumentation often require conditioning circuits that allow them to detect infinitesimal concentrations of certain analytes, which in turn produce extremely low currents that are difficult to measure. A reference design based on the state-of-the-art electrometer grade ADA4530 solves many of the design challenges, delivering a simple and ready to use development platform. This talk will cover all the design aspects that must be considered in the development of this type of front-end.

 

Time 13h00 - 13h30
Title Using LoRa® technology for connecting Embedded Applications
Speaker Hakim Jaafar, STMicroelectronics - in co-operation with Mouser Electronics
Abstract

Connectivity has become very important in many domains of embedded applications. There are several RF technologies and protocols available today. This presentation aims to introduce the LoRa® technology to all interested engineers and system designers. The first part of the presentation describes the main features and benefits of LoRa and practical use cases in the existing LoRa implementations. The second part attempts to answer the following questions: “How can LoRa be quickly evaluated?” and “Which hardware tools, products, and software packages can be used for easy and seamless LoRa implementation?”

 

Time 13h30 - 14h00
Title Power solutions for wearable technology
Speaker Florian Feck, Texas Instruments & Flavio Sestagalli, Coilcraft -  in co-operation with Mouser Electronics
Abstract

Modern battery-powered applications, ranging from IOT, like wireless sensors and wearable to industrial applications, are continually driving compact packaging and the highest efficiency standards for longest battery life.This presentation will feature power design examples like new package technologies as well as the combined wide VIN and 400nA Iq innovation - especially where the perfect matching of silicon and magnetic components achieve the twin goals of miniaturization and efficiency. We will also discuss the use of innovative composite material to minimize the impact of ambient temperature changes on key inductor parameters

 

Time 14h00 - 14h30
Title Reliable data matters in serious IoT applications
Speaker Christoph Kaemmerer, Analog Devices - in co-operation with Mouser Electronics
Abstract

Intelligent sensing starts with good data.  Analog Devices (ADI)  advanced sensing and measuring solutions deliver more accurate and reliable data in applications where data quality is mission critical. We will bring you through the sense, measure interpret and connect cycle of an IoT signal chain. With sensing technology such as MEMs, in applications where low noise combined with low power is critical. Intelligent sensing is about extracting insights.  ADI has a series of ultra low power processors, optimized for different performance. Optimized partitioning maximizes cloud value.  This leads to better insights and solves security, latency, storage, and other system-level problems. For connectivity within IoT ecosystems, the key needs are for reliable radio connections and extended battery life.

 

Time 14h30 - 15h00
Title LoRa: The Technology, the alliance and real world applications.
Speaker Jonathan Pearce, Microchip - in co-operation with Mouser Electronics
Abstract

LoRaWAN has become established as the leading technology within the LPWAN space, with a fast growing ecosystem of solutions ready to use today. This presentation will provide an overview of the technology and its capabilities, a view in to the LoRa Alliance and its growing membership, plus real world examples of both public and private deployments.”

 

Time 15h00 - 15h30
Title Content, Context, and Control – Involved in Obsolescence or Committed to Solving it?
Speaker Rob Picken, EMEA Director, FOM (Future of Obsolescence Management)
Abstract In the embedded electronics industry we are often struck with unexpected, highly disruptive obsolescence events, over which we seemingly have no influence. Looking more widely at the resources in the electronics industry, how can we start to intelligently utilise our supply chains and the huge amount of data they generate to bring control back from the marketplace when responding to obsolescence problems? Once you have regained control, what does this mean for future development, spend, and your business?

Title To IO-Link and Beyond - Enabling New Pathways to Adaptive Manufacturing and Improved Productivity
Speaker Jeff DeAngelis, Managing Director of Business Management, Maxim Integrated
Abstract A true evolution in manufacturing is upon us, where different products entering the manufacturing line will communicate their unique recipes so the equipment adapts to the specific products needs vs setting up dedicated manufacturing lines to accommodate an array of different products.  At the heart of this revolution is an exciting new technology called IO-Link and it enables traditional sensors to become intelligent sensors.  This article will discuss how IO-Link technology can reduce loss productivity in a factory through the power of Adaptive Manufacturing.
