Energy harvesting lecture: "Implementation of Autonomous Energy Harvesting Wireless Sensor Application," by TI's Adrian Valenzuela

  • 12:30 p.m. on Sept. 22 (ESC Theater)

TMS320C5000™ eZdsp USB stick makes development easier and more affordable, all while simplifying DSP programming. Based on the TMS320VC5505 processor, it's the industry's lowest- cost DSP development tool and is ideal for customers, students and hobbyists looking for an affordable tool to develop various portable applications.

  • 1:15 p.m. on Sept. 23 (room 204)

Medical Development Kits are the industry's first medical development tool sets with a complete signal chain and software/algorithm offering for multiple medical applications. Based on the C5505 processor, the kits provide high processing performance at very low power for ECG, digital stethoscopes and pulse oximetry.

  • 3:00 p.m. on Sept. 23 (room 204)

Medical Systems: Trends and Opportunities will be held at 3:00 p.m. on Sept. 22 in the ESC Theater and will feature entrepreneurs, researchers and electronic technologists to look at current trends in medical electronics from a political, business and technological point of view. Participants include:

  • TI's medical marketing director Steven Dean
  • Charles Sodini, professor of electrical engineering, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
  • Mir Imran, chairman and CEO, InCube Laboratories
  • Steve Ohr, research director, Gartner Dataquest
  • Newton de Faria, business development manager, National Instruments

Build an Embedded Web Server using the Stellaris® LM3S8962 Evaluation Kit by Dan Nakoneczny will demonstrate the Stellaris LM3S8962 Evaluation Kit with IAR Embedded Workbench tools to set up embedded Web solutions for a remote control application.

  • 3:00 p.m. on Sept. 22 (room 205)

DEMOS: TI experts will demonstrate a variety of embedded processing solutions at the show, such as:

  • TI's solar energy harvesting kit, which converts ambient light into power for industrial, transportation, agricultural and commercial applications.
  • AdaptivEnergy's Joule-Thief™ wireless, remote sensing solution based on AdaptivEnergy's Ruggedized Laminated Piezo (RLP®) technology, which enables compact energy harvesting modules to power applications such as wireless sensors.
  • Micropelt's TE-Power NODE, thermo-powered wireless sensing system, which takes a few degrees of temperature differential and harvests the thermal energy to operate the wireless sensor node, enabling unlimited battery-free operation.
  • Stellaris Evaluation Kits, which function as both an evaluation platform and as a serial in-circuit debug interface. The kits provide a low cost, effective means of evaluating Stellaris MCUs.
