Arrow Electronics are running a free hands-on workshop at Sensor City to explore and demo their electronic components and enterprise computing solutions.


The ARIS EDGE S3 board is a ready-to-use Internet of Things (IoT) hardware and software platform that enables users to get their IoT applications up and running quickly, exploiting the Renesas Synergy development framework.

The ARIS EDGE S3 board has a host of features that equip it for smart sensing, IoT operations and small HMI design, thanks to the Renesas Synergy S3A3 MCU with a 48-MHz ARM Cortex-M4 core with a floating-point unit (FPU). This enables communication with other devices and the cloud with a flexible multi-protocol radio module, supporting Bluetooth Low Energy, Thread and ZigBee Stacks.

The Renesas Synergy Platform helps to accelerate IoT designs: a proven combination of hardware and software makes development easier and faster, thus encouraging innovation and product differentiation. The combination of Arrow ARIS Edge S3 board and Renesas Synergy software platform enables developers to reduce time–to–market and decreases the total cost of ownership of a product over its lifetime.

Attendees should bring

– Windows 7/8/10 based laptop computer and power cord.
– Smart phone: Android phone with BLE connectivity and 5.0 or greater OS.

Instructions for software install prior to the event will follow.

Attendees will receive a free ARIS Edge3 board and LCD shield to continue their developments.
