Booth demos

SMASH IT

SMASH IT, a video series launching April 27 in conjunction with ESC, is a cross between Wayne's World, teardowns of your favorite products and a demolition derby, and highlights how TI products play across the board, in every aspect of the signal chain. See the premiere episode which will be running in the booth and receive additional details about the campaign.

Embedded Processing

Learn about the recently announced AM18x evaluation module featuring a LCD touch screen, Qt user interface and industrial control simulation. Also, see how the complete signal chain included in the new C5515 Fingerprint Development Kit enables developers to easily integrate fingerprint biometrics into products. The Embedded Communications and Camera Development Kits, based on the DM368 DaVinci video processor, enable affordable HD video communications and allow improved image quality and intelligent video encoding.

MCU

Experience remote energy monitoring with eZ430-Chronos, simplified digital LED control with MSP430 and C2000 solutions and intelligent motion control with the Stellaris Eval-Bot. Also, check out other application demos including pulsoximeter, energy harvesting and capacitive touch technologies.    

Low-Power RF

Stop by TI's booth to see SmartRF® Studio 7, a Windows application for evaluation and configuration of TI's Low Power RF ICs and RF4CE Remote Control, which allows developers to change infrared to RF with TI's RF4CE solution. Also, check out CC8520 PurePath™ Wireless Audio, a wireless audio transceiver featuring a 2.4 GHz system-on-chip transmitting uncompressed CD quality wireless audio over a state-of-the-art RF link.
