Imagination IP Seminars: Brazil

Please join us for a three-day seminar to learn about requirements for next-generation IoT ecosystem and ASIC designs and how you can differentiate amidst growing competition. Hosted by CTI Campinas and IFSP, technologists from Imagination Technologies, a leading provider of semiconductor IP technologies, will provide their insights based on many decades working with leading global companies to create some of the world’s most iconic products. Whether you are designing IoT systems for consumer market, commercial automation, industrial equipment, or new growth markets such as security, automotive, medical, wearables or any other IoT system, you’ll benefit from attending these sessions.

Monday, December 5th, 2016: Imagination IP for your successful ASIC design in Brazil and Ci40 platform

Monday am

Especially tailored for Managers, Project Leads and System Level Engineers, we’ll provide an overview of Imagination’s current and future IP technologies, focused in IoT IPs and Imagination MIPS CPU, highlighting the system level advantages they provide. You will hear Imagination’s view and activities within Brazilian microelectronics communities. We’ll also share how these technologies are being used by global leaders in some of today’s most popular products, and where you’ll see them next – including IoT and autonomous driving. You’ll learn about available development platforms to accelerate IoT application development.

IMAGINATION Sponsored lunch

Monday pm (Hands on with Ci40)

Attendees will experience with the Ci40 IoT platform: The main development board is the Creator Ci40 microcomputer with a dual-core, dual-threaded 550MHz MIPS processor. Operating system (OS) support includes GNU/Linux distributions such as OpenWrt, Debian, Contiki and Google’s Brillo OS for IoT. Creator Ci40 features numerous I/Os and peripherals so users can add a wide choice of accessories and expansion boards and also features a dedicated TPM chip for added security, a vital requirement for IoT applications. In addition to the 802.15.4 6LoWPAN functionality, the Creator Ci40 microcomputer also features support for other key low-power wireless and wired protocols, including 802.11ac 2×2 Wi-Fi®, Bluetooth® 4.1 (Smart + Classic) and super-fast Ethernet. We’ll discuss the rapidly changing dynamics of the semiconductor industry, and how Imagination can help you launch successful products into the market in this increasingly competitive landscape. Finally we will provide a hands-on demonstration of the IoT boards Ci20 and Ci40.

Tuesday & Wednesday, December 6-7, 2016: Your first experience using Ci40 IoT platform and ASIC design flow utilizing Imagination IP

Tuesday am

Especially for ASIC and IoT Devices Design Engineers, we will walk through the Imagination Creator Ci40 IoT-in-a-Box development kit. Creator Ci40 is the ultimate IoT-in-a-box development kit and it includes not only the hardware building blocks needed to quickly prototype a wireless IoT system from scratch, but most importantly the open source software frameworks, network stacks and cloud connectivity capabilities required to securely connect and authenticate devices to the cloud. The Creator Ci40 board is a high-performance, low-power microcomputer based on a subsystem optimized by us specifically for IoT applications.

Tuesday pm (Sponsored by Institute the Federal – with Professor Celso)

This session will provide ASIC Design Engineers information about the factors they need to consider when choosing Imagination IP. We will take a deep dive look at the popular Imagination Technologies IP around IoT connectivity and discuss how to design an industrial SoC for successful volume production. Attendees will see a demonstration on the MIPS microAptiv CPU including simulation and verification of the actual Verilog code using waveform

Wednesday am (Imagination IP and OPEN Q&A session)

This session will provide a good understating of Imagination IPs and how companies within Brazil can use the technology to enhance SoC and ASIC design in many fronts including IoT.
