Continuing our Cortex talks, Basic Experiments 2 will conver those topics: Timer/PWM, Independent and Window Watch Dogs, CRC (Cyclic Redundancy Check) and PVD (Programmable Voltage Detector).
Since the last talk was about sensors, I will add an example on how to connect a sensor to the Discovery board and obtain data from it. The bus invloved is I2C.
Hi Folks, perhaps you are already tired of my ARM Cortex talks so I will give you a break :-). Nick Alexeev, an expert in sensors and electronics, will be giving a talk on sensors. Here is the abstract:
An overview lecture on sensors. High level principles of sensing will be examined as well as a list of many physical parameters that are commonly sensed (from temperature to magnetic field) and the types of sensors that sense them. Follow-on lectures are possible, covering the related aspects, or particular groups of sensors in detail.
Hope to see you there. The Cortex talk will continue in two weeks.
Thanks all for coming to our introduction session. More than 40 people showed up! The slides and sample code have been uploaded to the Files secion.
We will continue our journey of learning. We will have 2 more sessions to cover the basic topics and 4-5 sessions to cover the advanced topics.
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.
This is our first meetup. To kick start the group, I am going to show people how to install and run Linux, Andriod and Windows CE (hack, who is still interested in WinCE) on a low-cost ARM11 development board.
The time is tentative, depending on how many people sign up. But it will happen if at least 10 people sign up.
