This is your formal (well, not that formal) invitation to join us for an awesome day filled with electronics goodness. What is Atmel's "Tech On Tour?" Check out the video:

The day will consist of three primary sessions - all of them are decidedly awesome. Check them out:

From 8:30-11:30 a.m. - Introduction to the Atmel SmartConnect WINC1500 Wi-Fi Module using Atmel | SMART SAM D21 Xplained Pro

This hands-on training will demonstrate the ease of use of the Atmel WINC1500 Wi-Fi to build state-of-the-art Internet of Things (IoT) applications. The following topics will be covered:

  • Technical overview of the Atmel Wi-Fi Network Controller solution, from hardware architecture to software design
  • Wi-Fi Software API for developing fast connected applications on any host MCU
  • Example of implementation for an IOT temperature sensor

** From 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.: Lunch provided to registered attendees**

You will have the opportunity to see demonstrations showcasing:

  • Hand Drill with Atmel CryptoAuthentication™
  • HP EliteBook 810 Revolve G2 – with Atmel maXStylus®
  • Philips Hue bulbs with Atmel ZigBee® and Lightweight Mesh stack
  • MakerBot 3D Printer with Atmel AVR® Microcontrollers MCU
  • Atmel XSense® capacitive touch sensor technology
  • Atmel Studio 6.2 with Atmel | SMART SAM4S-EK2 and Atmel ICE
  • Atmel | SMART SAMA5 Crank LCD
  • Atmel SmartConnect Xplained PRO Starter Kit
  • Atmel | SMART SAMR21 802.4 Wireless

From 12:30 – 4:30 p.m.: IoT Security Using Atmel CryptoAuthentication

This hands-on training will demonstrate the ease of use of the Atmel CryptoAuthentication device for security in conjunction with the Wi-Fi Network Controller based on WINC1500 to build state-of-the-art applications. The following topics will be covered:

  • Technical overview of the CryptoAuthentication Family
  • Wi-Fi Software API for developing fast connected applications on any host MCU
  • Examples of implementation for an authenticated IoT temperature sensor. We will demonstrate Node Authentication using and creating session keys
  • Examples of using the CryptoAuthentication device for Session Key Exchange between the temperature sensor and the application

You will also have a chance to speak with an Atmel tech expert to ask your toughest design questions, learn about industry trends, and get advice.

If you want to come, PLEASE REGISTER HERE. If you don't, you won't get any lunch. Think about that for a second.

We hope you'll join us for what will be an awesome day!

  • They were in nashville and our local micro group sent an email but no luck... :(

  • By the way, why did you guys take that rig out of my driveway and send it all the way to Colorado without my permission? :-)

  • Wish you would've included the more general Atmel Tour link in the text, so I wouldn't have had to juggle rewinding the video, and finding pencil and scratch paper...

    Anyway, there are several other dates/locations listed, as well as a form to sign up for notification if/when they add something near you. (I had to do that as they didn't have Phoenix listed, and it's NOT worth a day's drive [and two days in a motel] to go to the currently planned ones, IMHO.)

    Beware, though, that the site response seems VERY sluggish -- as in "get it started and go for a cup of coffee -- it'll be displayed by the time you get back".

  • Any possibility for recording and pod casting various events? or putting links to the Atmel official webcast if they exist? I wish I could attend, but I don't live close. :(

  • Ooooh, possible swag too?

  • I wish I lived closer to you guys. You are always doing cool stuff over there.

  • Uhhh..."attendee’s" is not supposed to have an apostrophe. Don't worry. I'll fix it in programming or something. :-)
