I recently attended the ON Semiconductor IOT Hands On Workshop organized by Arrow Europe in Dortmund. This is a short update on the event and the IOT kit.
The workshop was very well organized. I decided learn something new and it was worth it.
The Agenda of the workshop
Every developer received a full range of ON Semiconductor IoT Board and peripherals. The extra boards and motors were also given away to the developers which is quite a nice gesture on part of Arrow.

Hands-On Workshop Details
What we did:
- Install and use ON-Semi IDK which is Eclipse based and WICED Studio
- Hello World on LCD
- Interfacing the touch sensor and PIR sensor
- Interfacing the touch sensor and PIR sensor via the cypress WIFI module to the IBM Watson Cloud and see the data in real-time graph on the cloud as you moved your fingers on the touch pad.
We didn't do
- the DC motor interface,
- led and stepper motor interface but I got the code for them.
They use Mbed so thats quite nice as it has an ARM processor too.
In conclusion, I learnt something new and utilized my time completely. In future, I aim to write short blogs about the sensors interfaced to the IOT Board.
