Over the last few years, the industry has been moving from mechanical to fully electronic meters. We have seen more and more functionalities such as metrology with ultrasonic technology, leak detection with audio patterns, communication with low power and long range radio being added to smart meters. These new functionalities allow utilities to deliver new services such as condition-based maintenance and remote monitoring of meters, which lead to efficient management of the network and better customer experience.
The intent of this workshop is to be a place where a person with a few C skills and some microcontroller experience can familiarize themself with the Tiva TM4C123x series parts, Code Composer Studio, TivaWare for C Series and the process of programming these microcontrollers. If you lack C programming skills, there are many courses on the Internet where you can gain them ... that knowledge can form the basis for a rewarding career.

DC/DC Power Modules are best known for being compact, highly-integrated power supply design options. This training series examines some of the lesser-known advantages of TI power modules:
- How do Power Modules simplify power supply design?
- Inductor withstand voltage
- High temperature storage testing
TI’s AM6x Sitara processor family, along with the Processor SDK, brings unparalleled scalability, reliability, integration, and ease-of-use to the Sitara product line. The new, highly-integrated Sitara AM6x processor family provides industrial-grade reliability, with quad and dual Arm® Cortex®-A53 core variants built to meet the rapidly evolving needs of Industry 4.0 in factory automation and grid infrastructure.

As the number of complex electronic features in vehicles increase, body control modules (BCMs) are rapidly evolving to keep up. All semiconductor devices in a BCM have one thing in common – they all need power. This training series will go over the various power topologies needed in a BCM in a vehicle.
TI's Jacinto TDA2/TDA3 System-on-Chip (SoC) family offers scalable and open solutions based on a heterogeneous hardware and common software architecture for Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) applications including camera-based front (mono/stereo), rear, surround view and night vision systems in addition to multi-range radar and sensor fusion systems.
This training series provides an overview of the evaluation and development platforms as well as getting started with the software and development tools offered by TI on the Jacinto TDA2/TDA3 processors.
The topics will cover system design issue and solution for Building Automation, Power Delivery and Test & Measurement. TI experts introduce the latest technology and innovation system reference design. Discover ways to enhance the time-to-market and create safer and efficient industrial systems.
This training series focuses on hardware design for the Multi-channel Audio Serial Port (McASP). Before an engineer gets around to writing software for McASP, it has to be wired up properly. That is the focus of this McASP primer.
IPv6-based communications are becoming the standard choice in industrial markets such as smart meters and grid automation. The universal data concentrator design provides a complete IPv6-based network solution integrated with Ethernet backbone communication, 6LoWPAN mesh networking and more. The 6LoWPAN mesh networking, which adopts an identical layering architecture to the WI-SUN FAN, addresses key concerns such as standards-based interoperability, reliability, security and long-distance connectivity.
Although motor drives have been around for many years, trends in Industry 4.0 such as TSN, industrial IoT, and functional safety are revolutionizing the role a drive takes in the Smart Factory. Where typically its main function was to drive a motor, a servo drive now must include other features to conform with the needs of Industry 4.0. This paired with the rapid growth of the robotics market has created a need for Smart Servo drives with multi-axis capabilities.
