element14 Community and Infineon host educational webinar series on ModusToolbox software

element14 is working with Infineon to host the four-part webinar series, “ModusToolbox Workshops: From Getting Started to Custom Hardware,” to showcase ModusToolbox software, a popular Infineon offering used for efficient embedded development.

These webinars, led by Clark Jarvis, Software Technical Marketer at Infineon, will provide an understanding of ModusToolbox and related embedded development concepts. Each webinar will build in complexity, starting with the basics of using the software and ending with the steps to port the application onto custom hardware.

“I know our Community members will appreciate the opportunity to build upon their knowledge and implementation of theModusToolbox software with each webinar,” said Andreea Teodorescu, Global Director of Product Marketing & element14 Community. “Though the webinars can be watched as stand-alone videos, they will increase in complexity to provide a holistic overview for our members of this software.”

The first webinar in the series, “ModusToolbox Workshop 1: Understanding the Concepts” on Wednesday, 20 March at 5 p.m. GMT / 12 p.m. ET will share:
• An introduction to ModusToolbox
• Workflow options for supported IDEs
• How to integrate and manage middleware
• Overviews of API functions available for PSoC microcontrollers

The second webinar in the series, “ModusToolbox Workshop 2: Getting Started Using CAPSENSE Capacitive Touch” on Wednesday, 3 April at 5 p.m. GMT / 12 p.m. ET will explore:
• Creation of a ModusToolbox application
• Integration of CAPSENSE middleware
• Leveraging the CAPSENSE Tuner application to visualise touch performance

The third webinar in the series, “ModusToolbox Workshop 3: Connecting using Wi-Fi and MQTT” on Wednesday, 17 April at 5 p.m. GMT / 12 p.m. ET will delve into:
• Available ModusToolbox connectivity examples projects
• Connecting the development board to Wi-Fi
• Leveraging a local MQTT broker to publish and subscribe to messages
• Connecting the application to AWS

The fourth and final webinar of the series, “ModusToolbox Workshop 4: Porting an Application to Custom Hardware” on Thursday, 2 May 2 at 5 p.m. GMT / 12 p.m. ET will highlight:
• The concept of a ModusToolbox BSP
• Creation of a custom BSP based on a hardware schematic
• Moving the existing application to the custom hardware

The series will leverage the CY8CPROTO-062-4343W development kit featuring the PSoCTm 62 microcontroller. Participants desiring to follow along can order the board, however, having a kit is not required to benefit from this workshop.
Participants can test their knowledge on a short quiz and earn a certificate upon completion. The quiz will also be available for those who watch the webinar recordings available On Demand.
