Western Digital to Host Hackathon for RISC-V CPU with the Avalanche board designed by Future Electronics

Montreal, Canada – November 28, 2018 – RISC-V (pronounced “risk-five”) is a free and open ISA enabling a new era of processor innovation through open standard collaboration. In this Hackathon, participants are tasked with adding to the RISC-V Linux community. They will be hacking on a soft RISC-V CPU running Linux on the low-cost Avalanche FPGA board.

Hackathon participants could implement a hardware hack by bringing an Arduino shield, Mikrobus or PMOD peripheral and create a solution. They could implement an application using peripherals such as the PMOD Ambient Light Sensor or Adafruit Neopixel Shield. The hack could also be a software-based solution which adds to the RISC-V Linux ecosystem, such as a security solution or a unique bootloader, or anything else that could prove to be useful.

Teams can be made up of one to two people, and eligible participants will be invited to the floor of the RISC-V Summit 2018 Expo, which will be held in the Santa Clara Convention Center on Dec 4th and 5th. First prize is a Visa gift card for USD $1000.00, with second and third-place teams receiving Visa gift cards of $500.00 and $250.00 respectively, along with goody bags for all participants.

Future Electronics and ON Semiconductor to Host Free Webinar on Bluetooth Low Energy for IoT

Summary: Future Electronics and ON Semiconductor will host a free webinar on Bluetooth Low Energy Technology for IoT Applications at 2:00 pm EST on December 6th, 2018. 

Montreal, Canada – November 27, 2018 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, and ON Semiconductor, a leading supplier of semiconductor-based solutions, are hosting a free webinar on Bluetooth® Low Energy Technology for Ultra-Low Power IoT Applications at 2:00 pm EST/11:00 am PST on December 6th, 2018.

ON Semiconductor’s RSL10 System on Chip (SoC) and System in Package (SiP) devices offer the easiest way to bring the industry’s lowest power Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technology to wireless applications. The RSL10 SiP features an integrated antenna, RSL10 radio SoC, and all passive components in one miniature solution. Pre-certified to all worldwide wireless regulations (FCC, CE, IC, MIC, KC), the RSL10 is ready to use and doesn’t require any additional RF design considerations.

The BLE webinar will be led by ON Semiconductor Applications Engineer Larry Zhu. Webinar attendees will learn about the key features of the RSL10 product family and development tools, and will be shown a range of success stories and application examples that demonstrate the breadth of its capabilities.

Participants will also be introduced to key design considerations and requirements for developing low power IoT applications across different industries, using examples developed with ON Semiconductor’s IoT Development Kit (IDK).

Attendees can fill out a survey at the end of the webinar for the chance to receive one of 20 free RSL10-SIP-001GEVB dev boards.

Click here to register for the Bluetooth Low Energy for IoT webinar. If you’re unable to attend the live webinar, you can still register, and a link to the on-demand recording will be sent to you.
