Printed Circuit Board Design and Robotics with Arduino!

We will be hearing from Gus Issa on the basics of circuit board design using free software and a lifetime of experience.  We will also be working on an Arduino based robotic arm courtesy of Ying Wang!  If you have something that you would like to bring to show the group please do so.  Any technology and design will be welcome.

 

*EDIT* Jim is not able to make it to this meetup with his scoreboard so we moved Ying to center stage.

    Hi John, no worries, summer time construction can be a pain. Our next meetup will be July 29th, we look forward to seeing at this meetup.

    I am sorry. I attempted to enter the I-696E starting from I-275N Ramp but the detour information were so bad. I attempted 3 times and each time the Entrance Ramp is closed. I found that a longer stretch of I-696E was under repair but I got delayed by over 1 hour with other cars getting bad detour information and decided to go to Techshop to do some work instead.

      I was actually looking for a solar battery charger for my work vehicle, which has a habit of dying when I have to sit for a long time, and am running the radio, and my laptop off a converter.... (hmmmm maybe run the converter DIRECTLY off solar.....???)

      Solar charging is perfect from my motorhome! I know plenty about electronics but very little when it comes to solar power.

    Hi Priya, I would say the main part of the meeting a couple of hours. At the last meetup there are a few of us who ended up staying until around 3 or so. It's pretty open ended so if you are under time constraints come on in for as long as you can.

    Sounds like we have the topic of our July meetup.

    May 27, 2013

  • Ying W.

    That's a great idea! I can ask the president of our club on any tips when we start building :)

    May 27, 2013

  • Gus I.

    I guess the only option is to make our own quadcopter ;-)

    May 27, 2013

  • Ying W.

    Oh the quadcopters are at Duke, they're part of the club and they're not mine :(

    May 26, 2013

  • Gus I.

    Maybe the quadcopter can visit as well Ying ;-)
