What is 3D Printing and How it Can Impact Your Design (In a Positive Way)

3D printing is all the rage. The printers are becoming affordable at all levels and design engineers are finding new and better ways to use them in their prototypes. If you’re on the verge of developing a product, this is likely a technology that you can use to lower your costs and get your product to market (much) quicker. In this first of three classes, we’ll go over the basics of 3D printing and show engineers just what they need to make to make use of the technology.

  • The Software is the Differentiator Dec 15 2016 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Charles J. Lord, PE, President & Chief Trainer, Blue Ridge Advanced Design and Automation
    Putting together the various pieces of an IoT system is like assembling a jigsaw puzzle. But it's a finite task that most engineers can get through. When it comes to the operating system, other runtime software and the development tools available, here are seemingly endless possibilities. Hence, on Day 3 of this three-day class, we'll help you figure out what software is needed for your system, where you can find that software, how you can evaluate the software, what tools are available to help assemble the pieces and build your applications, and how to test it after it's been deployed. Day 3 sponsored by Intel.
  • Building Out Your IoT Application Dec 14 2016 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Charles J. Lord, PE, President & Chief Trainer, Blue Ridge Advanced Design and Automation
    While we can't build your complete system, we can take you through some of the key stages that'll put you well on the way toward finishing your design. In Day 2 of this three-day class, we'll look at the common subsystems with an IoT edge device and what you need to know to connect to the Fog and the Cloud. We'll also show you what some of the typical hurdles/stumbling blocks are, and most importantly, we'll show you how to navigate that slippery slope using an Intel Atom processor as our design example. Day 2 sponsored by Intel.
  • Determine Which Processor is Right for your IoT Application Dec 13 2016 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Charles J. Lord, PE, President & Chief Trainer, Blue Ridge Advanced Design and Automation
    All processors are the same, right? Well, not exactly. In fact, they vary greatly in terms of price, performance, power consumption, and a host of other features that can make or break your design. In Day 1 of this three-part class, we will go over different design requirements and where the Intel Atom processor fits. Then we'll get into the feature set that's best for your specific IoT application: performance, security, media processing, image processing, time coordinated, computing, etc. Day 1 sponsored by Intel.
  • Mitigate the Software Supply-Chain Risk Recorded: Nov 17 2016 60 mins
    Charles J. Lord, PE, President & Chief Trainer, Blue Ridge Advanced Design and Automation
    Class 3 will delve into mitigating software supply-chain risk by implementing a thorough security audit process of one’s software, which has become more critical as more code is being “leveraged” as opposed to written. We will discuss potential risks of leveraged code: previously trusted legacy code, commercial third-party code, and open-source code. We will discuss binary analysis technologies for efficiently assessing risk. This need is growing as too often this code isn’t properly tested, especially with the specific target hardware. The instructor will be covering both the technical aspects and the process that should be followed, with special attention paid to software that’s written for the IoT. Day 3 sponsored by GrammaTech.
  • Don’t Let Concurrency Bring your System Down Recorded: Nov 16 2016 61 mins
    Charles J. Lord, PE, President & Chief Trainer, Blue Ridge Advanced Design and Automation
    Class 2 will be a follow-on topic to class 1, where we will discuss the concept of concurrency. It’s clear that today’s developers need to be designing more efficient and higher performing applications using multi-threading, and testers need to understand how to efficiently pinpoint potential race conditions caused by concurrency defects that will lead to system failure. This is especially true when it comes to programming for multicore processors. Within the class, we will provide key insights and techniques for identifying concurrency defects, key to quality and safety, particularly as it pertains to the Internet of Things (IoT). Day 2 sponsored by GrammaTech.
  • Use Proper Taint Analysis, Especially in the IoT Recorded: Nov 15 2016 61 mins
    Charles J. Lord, PE, President & Chief Trainer, Blue Ridge Advanced Design and Automation
    In this class, we will teach software developers, testers, and analysts how taint analysis can identify exploitable areas within an application and/or system that could be used as an entry point by a hacker. Using IoT as our example, we will help perform proper taint analysis, evaluating how data modified purposely by a user or system (such as a variable set by a field in a web form or a package of information send across an automotive CAN bus) poses a potential security risk. With the continuing surge in code and data spawned by the IoT’s popularity, this is especially needed to maximize security and maintain an efficient data flow, regardless of whether it’s data within an application or data that’s transferred between applications. Given the enormous increase in application and system connectivity, all software should be analyzed for taint defects. Day 1 sponsored by GrammaTech.

  • Get the most juice from your battery pack - Class 2 Recorded: May 4 2016 61 mins
    Joshua Israelsohn - Founder, Director of Media and Training Services - JAS Technical Media
    The functionality required by systems continues to increase and the digital semiconductor vendors are doing a pretty good job keeping the power requirements stable. In some cases, they’re even dropping the voltage levels to what considered at one time to be noise. From a power-management perspective, how do system designers deal with this need to squeeze every watt from the shrinking battery cells? That’s what will be covered on Day 2 in the three-part series of Embedded University: Analog/Power. Sponsored by Texas Instruments

  • Looking at an example application: automotive - Class 3 of “Secure Code" Recorded: Oct 15 2015 61 mins
    Rob Hoffman, President, High Assurance Systems, Inc.
    What good is great secure code if it if it isn’t part of a great application? Day 3 of our three-day class “Secure Code — Now and in the Future" will take the valuable insights learned on Days 1 and 2 and apply them to a real-world automotive application. If that's the area you're designing for, great. But if not, don't despair, as the expert instructor will point out how the variables that apply directly to an automotive application correlate to other applications.
