Impressions from Freescale Technology Forum 2015

With Freescale merged into NXP, I guess this was the last FTF (Freescale Technology Forum) after a history of 10 years. Maybe it will transform into a ‘NTF’, at least I hope that such an energizing event and conference will continue in the new NXP area. I was busy with delivering my own sessions, but had time to meet and greet and see a lot of interesting stuff. After visiting the TechLab several times and after all the discussions with other embedded enthusiasts I have now many cool projects in mind :-).

So what I do here is to share some impressions with pictures and videos. It will take me weeks to absorb everything. Not to talk about the huge email backlog I have now ;-). So enjoy:

  1. Erich,
    Just wanted to say that I was very excited to see you there. I’ve been following your posts on here for years now. The FTF event exceeded my expectations and I will certainly be doing my best to attend next year.

    Also, my condolences regarding your mentor BBJ.

  3. Well the question of what the next Forum will be called has been answered – its the NXP FTF. By coincidence I will be in the US this year and am planning to drop in from Australia… The announcement was this week I think so I’d be interested in additional info if its available.
    Regards, Chad
