Introduction to Embedded Programming with ARM Cortex Micro-controller

Whether you are new to embedded programming, or have been doing it for a while, you don't want to miss this event. As people know, ARM micro-controllers are gathering huge momentum. They are powerful (32-bit at 72HMz), feature-rich and low cost with wide industrial supports.

In this talk I am going to explain why you should consider switching to ARM Cortex (if you are not already using it), chip selections, tool chains, software and so on. Best of all, you will learn how to have a professional development environment, an in-circuit debugger/programmer, a powerful 32-bit ARM development board all for under $12. I will also show how to develop your first application, an equivalent of "Hello World" in embedded programming.

Note this is about embedded programming WITHOUT an operating system, the lowest level one can get. The language is C. You should have some knowledge of hardware, or the desire to learn.

    the meeting would have been better with real time audio and video through the local network. my eyes are so bad I could not read the display on the wall.
    many of the speakers could not be heard or understood. for the most part, I got little from the meeting.

    Presenter was amiable and well-informed. Only problem was he mumbled into his keyboard with his back to the audience. Couldn't hear a word. Need a sound system with loudspeakers facing the audience for this sort of presentation.

    It was a very informative session and the provided materials and demo are perfect and good for the starter who learning the embedded computing.

    Definitely worth for people new to embedded programming. Basic toolsets, sample programs to get started, it was useful.

    plenty of detail and good pacing of the talk. could have used some hands-on play time at the end. alan really knows his stuff and so do the other attendees!

    I am not supplying the boards. They are available in the usual places like Digikey and Mouser. The beginner board really costs less than $12. The board is made by the chip company. I believe they lose money on that, hoping for people to use their chip.

    No you do not need to be a Dojo memeber to attend the events.

    Are you supplying the dev boards? If so, it only the $12 fee or are there additional fees?

    Apologies if this information is available somewhere, but I couldn't find it: Do I have to be a paying Hacker Dojo member to attend this event?

    Hi AL, welcome to the group. Not sure what you meant by "holding the meetup online". If you meant webinar kind of things, then no, we aren't that sophisticated (yet). If you meant whether the talk slides will be online, then yes. I will put up the slides after the talk.

  • AL

    Are you holding the ARM meetup online also?

    I added more information regarding the talk. Please see the Discussions section and post questions there.

    Could you please provide some reference URLs so that we could what you will be talking about? I do plan to attend and would like to go with the basic research under my belt.

    The board we are going to use for beginners is the STMicroelectronics STM32 Discovery which costs less than $12. The trial version of the software costs nothing. It is either code size restricted or time restricted but more than adequate for learning. In this talk we are going to cover: 1. Why ARM micro-controllers (versus AVR, Microchip, etc.); 2. which ARM micro-controllers; 3. Tools and how to set up; 4. One or two simple programs; 5. What else can it do (besides flashing the LEDs.).

    Can we get a sneak preview of how we will be able to have a "professional development environment, an in-circuit debugger/programmer, a powerful 32-bit ARM development board all for under $12."?

    I'm truly sorry to miss the event, but I will be out of town.
