Session 5 - Introduction to Graphics Processing (Hands-On Workshop)
EE Times University  
12/13/2013   472 comments
The capabilities of microcontrollers have been steadily improving over the last few years as applications have demanded more functionality and features. More and more electronic devices are relying on a display to provide users with options and a way to interact in real-time. Traditionally, graphics and touch interfaces have proven to be complex interfaces that only a few elite can understand. This session will explore the graphics processing capabilities of the SM32F4 and how easy it is to get up and running with your own graphical user interfaces.
  • Introduction to graphics processing
  • Graphics peripheral
  • Graphics toolchain

Session 4 - Digital Signal Processing With the STM32F4 (Hands-On Workshop)
EE Times University  
12/12/2013   288 comments
While we live in an analog world, microcontrollers only have the ability to process digitized information. Analog signals are sampled at discrete times, often requiring high-speed digital signal processing to ensure appropriate conditions. This session will explore the digital signal processing capabilities of the STM32F4 and how they can be implemented in real-world applications.

Session 2 - Selecting the Right Microcontroller*
EE Times University  
12/3/2013   639 comments
Designing an embedded system is often considered to be more art than science. Selecting the right microcontroller for the job is absolutely critical to ensure proper operation of the system. This session will explore tips and tricks for selecting the right microcontroller, ensuring that development gets up and running on the right foot. *Please note the first 1,000 qualified attendees (located in the United States & Canada) will receive a Free STM32F429 Discovery Board for the hands-on workshop Days 3-5.
