- RS Components (RS), a brand of Electrocomponents, a global multi-channel distributor, will be present at the Electronica exhibition in Munich (Germany) from 13 to 16 November 2018.
- RS will present the latest technologies from leading global suppliers in their fields.
- On the RS booth, visitors will also be able to participate in various activities: robotic football tournament, Wheel of Fortune, etc.
- Among the many prizes to be won is a €2500 holiday voucher.
On the 450 square metres of the RS booth (stand 147 in Hall C5), visitors will discover innovative projects carried out by customers and suppliers:
- Ambionics’: how its founder, Ben Ryan, transformed his son’s life by creating a 3D printing of an arm prosthesis.
- Hyperloop: presentation of how RS is supporting the HYPED team at the University of Edinburgh to accelerate the development of Hyperloop, SpaceX’s project to revolutionize public transport.
- The influential inventor Norbert Heinz will present a CNC router designed with basic electronic components, driven by the latest Raspberry Pi nanocomputer.
- How leading industrial brands in their fields offer the latest generation of engineering technologies and products to customers, enabling them to be pioneers in inventions to transform the world.
Two areas on the stand will be devoted to the main trends of the Internet of Things (IoT) and artificial intelligence. The IoT Connected Stand will display an open-source sensor-based board that collects environmental data and transmits it via a LoRaWAN gateway to the IoT DesignSpark Cloud platform, and the use of blockchain ledger technology by various industrial applications. In the field of Artificial Intelligence, the “Pidentifier” system, an autonomous Artificial Intelligence demonstrator that combines a Raspberry Pi nanocomputer and its camera with Intel Movidius’ Neural Compute Stick (NCS), will be on display.
In the DesignSpark area, demonstrations of the RS suite of free professional CAD software will be offered, as well as innovative designs developed with PCB DesignSpark, such as a guitar pedal based on the KORG Nutube valve amplifier, and a “selfie” camera using a Raspberry Pi.
In the “RS Pro” area, a workbench will present a range of electronic, electrical and mechanical products from the RS Pro brand, including hand tools, tool boxes, test and measurement instruments, as well as the latest RS Pro 3D printer.
RS will also be present in Electronica’s innovation hall (hall C6). In particular, a variety of demonstrations and educational activities based on STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) will be offered.
