Dialog Semiconductor is conducting a series of one-day free seminars around the country covering its offerings in Bluetooth low energy that includes hands-on training as well as presentations on the newest version of the Bluetooth spec, 5.1. One attraction of the event is that attendees get two free Bluetooth low energy development kits worth more than $160, the DA14695 USB dev kit, billed as the world’s most advanced wireless MCU, and the DA14585 IoT Multi Sensor dev kit, said to be the world’s lowest-power 15-DOF wireless sensor kit. Presenters also cover the new capabilities outlined in the Bluetooth 5.1 spec released earlier this year, as well as a new wireless microcontroller (SmartBond DA1469x) able to provide 5.1 capabilities. Covered as well are Bluetooth Mesh, HomeKit and other Cloud technologies for IoT applications.
We recently attended the event which was held in Detroit. Here are some of the highlights you’ll experience if you sit in on the seminar at one of the other stops.
