OSLO, Norway, August 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
To be held in 16 separate locations in the U.S, Asia, and Europe between September 17 and October 29 and designed to coincide with the launch of Nordic's ground-breaking nRF51 Series of 2.4GHz SoCs, the Nordic Semiconductor Global Tech Tour will take a team of the company's top wireless application technical experts on the road to deliver a free, high intensitytraining seminar designed to get embedded systems engineers up-to-speed within a day on how to build their first - or next generation - Bluetooth Smart or ANT+ wireless smartphone application accessories ('appcessories').
Ultra low power (ULP) RF specialist Nordic Semiconductor ASA (OSE: NOD) today announces that with the launch of its ground-breaking nRF51 Series of System-on-Chips (SoCs) it will embark on a Global Tech Tour in which a team of the company's top wireless application technical experts will travel around the world to teach embedded systems developers in just one day how to develop their first/next generation Bluetooth Smart or ANT+ ULP wireless smartphone application accessory or 'appcessory' for short.
Each seminar is designed to beintensive, fun, and fully hands-on, and will include a detailed technical walk-through starting from a ULP wireless sensor within an appcessory through how it wirelessly connects to a smartphone and ending with how this all interfaces to a developer's app running on the smartphone's operating system. The agenda will include an overview of ULP wireless, Nordic's latest nRF51 Series SoCs, Bluetooth low energy (including Bluetooth Smart) qualification, and a full afternoon of software development application examples taken from Nordic's brand new nRF51 SDK (Software Development Kit) which each participant will be able to take home free-of-charge.
"Each of these Global Tech Tour seminars is designed to be far more than a set of presentations given in PowerPoint format," explains John Leonard, Tactical Marketing Manager at Nordic Semiconductor. "They will be a genuine and unique opportunity for smartphone app developers to kickstart their next Bluetooth Smart or ANT+ application accessory within a single day with the help of some of the world's most experienced and knowledgeable ULP wireless application engineers and system software architects."
