BCD-Atlantik announces Spring workshops on Customised Linux Distribution and Ethernet, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Connectivity

Duxford Museum – May 8th and 9th

BCD-Atlantik will be hosting workshops in Duxford near Cambridge to help designers get the best performance from two key embedded module lines.

The first workshop on May 8th is based around the latest DIGI ConnectCore 6UL IoT development kit and YOCTO Operating System – The Industry’s smallest wireless low-power NXP i.MX6UL UltraLite System-on-Module platform. The workshop will be a hands on event intended to assist in developing customised Linux distribution for the NXP i.MX6(UL) based ARM Cortex-A7 and Cortex-A9 Multi Core System on Modules (SoM) and SBCs.

Starting with an overview of the Digi ConnectCore i.MX6UL and i.MX6 embedded product benefits the workshop will cover an introduction to the Yocto Operating System, Digi TrustFence Security Framework Overview, ConnectCore for i.MX6UL SBC Express and Yocto Hands-on Training.

Delegates will learn about the development environment setup and first steps, U-Boot Bootloader, application development using Eclipse or QT Creator, creating a custom Yocto layer and adding a custom application to a project, OS Customization and Device Tree Introduction and Kernel configuration

On May 9th the second workshop will cover designing Embedded Wi-Fi on the Lantronix – xPico 200 Series. The goal of the workshop is to assist designers to deliver seamless and secure Ethernet, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity. The Lantronix xPico 200 series allows OEMS to build and deploy their smart connected products with reduced complexity and lower risk.

The workshop will commence with an introduction to Lantronix and their products oxPico 240/250 and the MACH10 IoT application development and deployment platform. Two hands-on sessions will take place during the day.

Session 1 will cover, oLab1: FW upload + secure boot, oLab2-4: Tunnel (Serial to Ethernet, serial to WLAN0, serial to AP0), oLab5: Ethernet to WLAN0 bridge, oLab 6-8: Web manager, customise web page and multi user settings, demo MACH10 (OEM, portal, end user view), FW upload, remote reboot.

Hands-on session 2 will demonstrate Lab9: MACH10 end user view and Lab 10: SDK (Hello world, TCPtunnel)

Both workshops open at 9:00am for registration with a 9:30am start, Q and A sessions will follow each session at around 4:30pm. For further information call +44 (0)1256 818111 or visit the BCD-Atlantik website  http://www.bcdatlantik.co.uk/ or  to register email: info@bcdatlantik.co.uk
