Yesterday a handful of Twin Cities Makers attended Texas Instruments’ Technology Day (2009 Schedule) at the RiverCentre in St. Paul.
Texas Instruments and several of its partners/distributors such as Digi-Key, Mouser, Osram, Newark, Ingenient Technologies, Arrow Lighting, Cymbet, and Laube showed a varied array of cutting edge products of great interest to the maker community.
Exhibits included high power LEDs and drivers, DLP displays and drivers, energy harvesting modules, digital power solutions, microcontrollers, and more. The conference offered classes touching on many important technologies such as LEDs, analog and digital data acquisition, IP multimedia, and green power, though the classes were targeted mostly for engineering professionals.
