Seminar series to help design industrial human-machine interfaces

Future Electronics has announced dates for a series of seminars which will present the latest technologies for advanced Human-Machine Interface (HMI) designs, including microcontrollers with multi-touch and voice-recognition capabilities and tools for rapid graphics display development.

The all-day seminars, which will take place in ten European city-centre locations in October and November 2017, will address the most common issues faced by designers of industrial and medical equipment when developing sophisticated touch-sensing graphics displays. Engineers attending the seminars will learn about:

* the improved capabilities of the 2D graphics accelerator, display controller and touch-sensing controller built into the latest microcontrollers from manufacturers such as NXP Semiconductors, STMicroelectronics and Microchip.

* quick and effective ways to implement attractive and functional display graphics using the TouchGFX graphics library and design tool.

* the extended lifetime, robust performance and support for touch-sensing with gloves and operation in wet conditions provided by high-brightness industrial displays from Tianma-NLT.

* how to interface any microcontroller or microprocessor to any display or camera using video bridging technologies from Lattice Semiconductor.

* how MCUs can support voice-recognition services, such as Google Assistant or the Amazon Alexa Voice Service.

* the HMI options available to users looking for an off-the-shelf SoM or SBC from TechNexion or iWave.

Future Electronics will also demonstrate a series of new HMI reference designs that it has developed at its Centre of Excellence in Gdansk, Poland, based on microcontrollers from NXP, ST and Microchip, and featuring TouchGFX-derived graphics on Tianma-NLT displays.

The seminar dates and venues are:

17 October Egham, UK

19 October Leeds, UK

25 October Gothenburg, Sweden

13 November Stuttgart, Germany

21 November Nantes, France

22 November Paris, France

23 November Brussels, Belgium

28 November Madrid, Spain

29 November San Sebastien, Spain

30 November Barcelona, Spain
