GreenPeak offers training for ultra-low-power wireless sensor networks
Utrecht, The Netherlands – GreenPeak Technologies has announced the GreenPeak Academy, an educational, training and consultancy platform for ultra-low-power wireless sensor networks. GreenPeak initiated the platform to address growing corporate demand for know-how in developing and deploying ultra-low-power sense and control networks.
The GreenPeak Academy training program is part of a long-term commitment to providing training for the wireless sense and control industry and facilitating widespread deployment of this emerging technology. It is also part of GreenPeak's ongoing campaign to quickly train new staff, which is essential for supporting the GreenPeak team's rapid growth.
"We see tremendous future growth in the wireless sense and control industry," said Cees Links, GreenPeak's CEO. "Ultra-low-power wireless solutions utilizing energy harvesting are the key to fueling this growth. GreenPeak wants to anticipate the trend and accommodate the demand for trained engineers. Our specialists and training programs will focus on key design challenges for ultra-low-power wireless sensor applications and utilize real-life cases to show participants how to determine the lowest possible energy consumption."
The GreenPeak Academy features one-off seminars, advanced training and webinars, all supported by a team of experienced, carefully selected trainers and consultants.
The courses are scheduled for one to three days and are tailored to meet the customer's requirements. The first GreenPeak Academy was held in January for GreenPeak's partners and distributors. A half-day post-conference seminar sponsored by the GreenPeak Academy has also been added to the second-annual nanoPower Forum (nPF '08), which will be held June 2-4 in Costa Mesa, Calif. This seminar, "Designing for ultra-low-power wireless sensor applications powered by energy harvesting," will be offered to the nPF '08 registered delegates.
Participants will hear the GreenPeak Academy team discuss a variety of important technical topics including: power budget breakdowns in wireless sensor networks, successful techniques for reducing power consumption and useful sources of energy (including demonstrations of practical energy harvesting devices). GreenPeak will also provide a complete design example of a real-world, low-power design for a wireless sensor network application.
