Avnet Memec seminars focus on lower power consumption and energy management solutions

March 06, 2012 // By Paul Buckley
Avnet Memec is hosting a series of seminars focused on energy management solutions from Maxim and Energy Micro.

The free one-day seminars are being held on:

27. March 2012: Graz
29. March 2012: Ljubljana
17. April 2012: Milan
18. April 2012: Bologna
19. April 2012: Padova
24. April 2012: Katowice
25. April 2012: Warsaw
08. Mai 2012:   Zurich
09. Mai 2012:   Lausanne

Highlights include demonstrations of the evaluation platform built by Avnet Memec based on Energy Micro's 32-bit Cortex-M3 EFM32 Gecko microcontroller and the energy harvesting charger and protector from Maxim. There are also live demonstrations of LED lighting, power line communication and energy metering, along with presentations on Maxim's energy saving ADC/DAC and battery management solutions, which aim to give designers a better awareness of ways to reduce power consumption in their applications.

In addition, designers attending the seminar will have the opportunity to see a full demonstration platform for a smart meter application. Called Newport, this platform from Maxim combines an energy metering SoC with a secure co-processor, real time clock and G3-PLC.

Seminar places are limited and further details including registration are available on the Avnet Memec Website:  www.avnet-memec.eu/events/seminars.html
