Join Texas Instruments and IEEE CEDA @DATE 2017 for an Exciting Day practicing with TI's SimpleLink Technology

The SimpleLink platform offers the broadest portfolio of differentiated wired and wireless ARM® MCUs with a single development environment that delivers flexible hardware, software and tool options for customers developing Internet-of-Things (IoT) applications. TI and IEEE CEDA brings you the opportunity to get the tools, training and participate in an exiciting challenge all for free!

Material provided to the students for free

Each participant will be offered a Launchpad and a Sensortag that will allow to set up their own Wireless Sensor Network during the tutorial as well as later on at home. The new CC1350 dual-band technology will allow cost-effective, ultra-low-power, 2.4-GHz and Sub-1 GHz IoT applications. The combination of easy mobile phone integration with long- range connectivity including a 32-bit ARM® Cortex®-M3 processor on a single chip, and the varied flow of data from 10 different types of sensors will give you the opportunity to innovate in a broad range of personal or academic projects.


Texas Instruments eZ430-Chronos and MSP430-Sensortags

  • 1st team: 2 TI Chronos Watches + 6 Sensortags
  • 2nd team: 2 TI Chronos Watches + 4 Sensortags
  • 3rd team: 2 TI Chronos Watches + 2 Sensortags

How to Participate

Students interested in participating can send an email before Friday, March 24, 2017 to to register as a team (2 participants). If you want to participate but you do not have a partner, send an email as well and we will find a partner for you.

Once registered, you will receive further instructions to install on your laptop the required TI tools before the challenge. Then, stop by the DATE registration on Monday morning and you will get the access to the challenge, material, coffee breaks and lunch all for free.
