In the days prior to the conference we will be running our most popular ARM-based courses, which compliments the conference program perfectly. We only have limited spaces available, so we recommend booking sooner rather than later!

Both courses are delivered by our resident ARM Specialist, Trevor Martin who is a published author and recognised authority on Cortex-M cores.


If you have any questions, then please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Using an RTOS on Cortex-based microcontrollers

26th November, Hilton Hotel Warwick, CV34 6RE

This course is an introduction to using a small footprint Real Time Operating System on a Cortex-M based microcontroller. Throughout the course we use the CMSIS-RTOS API which is designed to be a standard software interface for operating systems running on Cortex-M microcontrollers.

The course is designed as a hands on workshop using the Keil MDK-ARM development software.  It is also ideally partnered with the "Designing secure communications for IoT systems" workshop, held the day after this course.

Designing secure communications for IoT systems

27th November, Hilton Hotel, Warwick, CV34 6RE

This course provides a foundation in secure communications needed to develop a secure IoT network. We begin by introducing the most commonly used cryptographic algorithms and how they are used in the Transport layer security (TLS) protocol.

We then use this knowledge to design an X.509 certificate based IoT network using Message Queued Telemetry Transport (MQTT) which can manage large numbers of connected devices. The course is workshop based with all materials and PC’s provided.

This course is also ideally attended alongside the "Using an RTOS on Cortex-based microcontrollers" course, running the day before this one.
