Communications Libraries for Arduino

The Arduino is a very powerful platform for easily building embedded systems. One of the things that makes the Arduino platform powerful are its libraries for communicating with sensors, devices, and other Arduinos.  This class will teach how to use the following Arduino libraries for communicating:

• Wire (TWI - Two Wire Interface and I2C - Inter-Integrated Circuit)

• SPI (Serial Peripheral Interface)

• SoftwareSerial (Serial communication without UARTs)

The class will include discussion of the tradeoffs for each library and their hardware requirements, as well as examples.

There is a nominal charge ($10) for this class, to fund Nova Labs.

Please park in the commuter parking lot across the street.

    Bummed I couldn't make it to this class. I had to spend my time working on my Maker Faire project.

    The meetup presentation proviede a good overview of the different arduino communication libraries.A real plus was the presenters ability to connect an oscilloscope to an I2C communication example and present the traces on the projector screen. This helped the participants visualize the acctual workings of the communication protocol.

    Wish I could attend though out of town. I just got my first Arduino Uno experimentation kit and am diligently going through eleven beginner circuits to gain familiarity. I'll catch the next one, Craig.

      Are we going to have lab coding exercises? It would be awesome to create comm links between two Arduinos with the classmate next to you.

      Since we don't have a uniform Arduino development environment (laptops, Arduinos), and you waited until the day of the class to suggest this, no. I will be talking about *how* to do this, with examples, but there will be no lab exercise. I suggest this for the next Arduino group meeting, on April 1st.
