This workshop is a follow-on to the Arduino 101 class held in April. We will be using the SPI bus and I2C bus on the Arduino to interface with IC peripherals. Topics will include a discussion on the SPI/I2C hardware signal standard, master/slave communications, and the implementation of the bus standards on the Arduino platform. Code examples will be used to illustrate how to properly interface the Arduino with various peripherals. An Arduino compatible shield kit will be available for purchase which includes a number of IC's to interface with. This kit is strongly recommended to get the most from this workshop.
What to Bring:
- Laptop with a USB port and the Arduino development environment installed
- Arduino Board (Uno, Mega, Duemilanove, Diecimila, Leonardo)
What does it Cost:
- Workshop with Kit: $TBD (members), $TBD (non-members)
- Workshop without Kit: Free (members), suggested donation of 2 to 10 dollars (non-member)
Note: I am still working on the kit, so the exact price is unknown at this time. Im trying to keep it under $35 for non-members. Members will get it a little cheaper. I will update this as soon as I have a firm number.
If you missed the Arduino 101 class, its not a problem. Contact me and I can get you up to speed.
