A Hands-on Workshop Using Thread and BLE for Low-Power Solutions

In the era of connected intelligence, there are a number of wireless standards being deployed into embedded applications. Within this framework, is an emergence of new wireless communications protocols designed specifically for IoT applications, which can help lower cost and extend the reach of connected applications. Enter three such connectivity standards: two emerging (Thread and BLE mesh) and one established (Bluetooth® low energy or BLE). These standards provide a connectivity framework for edge node communications and connectivity. As more and more processing is pushed to the edge, it is important to have a robust, responsive platform that can analyze and act upon the myriad of data created.

Join NXP, Arrow Electronics and Rigado for this workshop to gain practical hands-on experience implementing Thread, BLE and BLE mesh connected applications. In this session, you will learn:

  • The fundamentals of Thread, BLE, and BLE mesh wireless protocols
  • How to create BLE beacons, BLE environmental sensors, BLE wearables and other popular BLE-based devices
  • How to create Thread and BLE mesh networks
  • How to leverage the Thread network commissioning app
  • More about Thread and BLE dual mode use-cases

During this session you will receive a R41Z module evaluation kit and a complete enablement package to immediately help you jump-start your connected design.

We are still finalizing dates on some of the cities - please contact your local Arrow Sales Office for more information or check back on this website for a confirmed event date.

*Attendees should bring a Windows 7/8/10-based laptop computer and power cord.

*Attendees should bring a smart phone: iPhone 4S or later or Android phone with BLE connectivity and 5.0 or greater OS.
